    Today, Blizzard announced a new class for its highly anticipated RPG Diablo III.

    “Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today offered the public the first-ever opportunity to play an early version of its highly anticipated action-role-playing game, Diablo III. Players at the BlizzCon 2008 gaming convention in Anaheim, California, adventured alongside fellow attendees, fighting the hordes of the Burning Hells in one of the game’s early dungeons. “Until now, no one outside the company has been able to play Diablo III — we’re excited to offer the first such opportunity to the gamers here at BlizzCon,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re working hard to make sure Diablo III lives up to the high standards of the first two games in the series, and we look forward to hearing what players think.”

    During the show, Blizzard Entertainment also unveiled the game’s third playable class: the wizard. A wielder of the elements and a master manipulator of time, the wizard can hurl environment-shattering lightning bolts, channel explosive arcane energies, and create pockets of space outside the normal temporal flow. BlizzCon attendees were able to adventure as either the wizard or the previously unveiled barbarian or witch doctor, battling alone or with up to three other players through the catacombs beneath Tristram Cathedral to a final showdown with the Skeleton King. First announced at the Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational in June 2008, Diablo III picks up twenty years after the events of Diablo II, as a fiery omen from the sky heralds the return of dark forces to the mortal realm. Players will take on the role of one of five champions, collecting powerful spells, abilities, and items as they clash with twisted demons and explore the dark corners of the world of (more) Sanctuary. Diablo III will feature unique random scripted quests, destructible environments, and cooperative and competitive play online through an upgraded version of Blizzard Entertainment’s Battle.net gaming service. “

    magic types are generally are harder to play since they posses low vitality and strength, though they have stronger attacks compared to other classes, the fact remains that playing a game like diablo 3 is harder when you use sorceress and so much easier to play with barbarians or strength type characters. its a challenge to play with such magic types.

    Thats not always true Alex. There was a time in Diablo 2 when Ice Sorcs were the hardest things to kill. It didn’t matter that they had lower vitality, they could spam click their Ice Orbs and level everything, and once that got nerfed, Fire Sorcs were the badass ones. It always seems like even though they have lower vitality and defense, they have plenty of magic attacks that make up for it and level the playing field.

    Yup, I agree with you on that nick. But I guess, its kinda hard finishing the game by normal play with magic type characters. Guys! Diablo 3 is going to be released this January. Have you guys pre-ordered yet? I got lots of friends preordering and having additional Diablo 3 goodies for it.

    Where did you hear it was going to be released in January? There isn’t even a page for it yet on EB Games to pre-order it if I wanted to, not to mention there are only 3 classes released so far, no betas have been done, and I haven’t heard even a rumor of a release date from Blizzard. I’m guessing it’s pretty safe to say it will be another year or two before we even hear of a release date. Blizzard has amazing quality games, but they are by far the worst at pushing a games release back 4 or 5 times before they finally release.

    So the development of Diablo is still far too long to wait. Might as well play a different game today then play Diablo when it’s released.
