StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm was just released and already Blizzard is working on the third and final chapter, a Protoss-centric expansion called Legacy of the Void.
We can probably expect a launch sometime in late 2014 or early 2015.
Diablo III game designer Travis Day shared several interesting insights into a couple of the more significant changes that Blizzard plans to make to the game with the next patch.
To summarize his post, Blizzard will continue to focus on the endgame with 1.08. Wee!
Fuck the game. Blizzard really needs to just make a StarCraft movie.
I’m really not sure how to feel about this. StarCraft 64 was a total failure.
Blizzard finally released the long awaited 1.07 patch for Diablo III today. It adds a long list of new features to the game, fixes bugs, addresses balance issues, and introduces new “end game” content – mostly new crafting options. You can read the patch notes right here.
And yes, player versus player (PvP) is live with this patch. It’s been dubbed “brawling”.
The new training system certainly looks interesting…
Blizzard is really trying to get people to engage with StarCraft II. This looks rad.
…and just like that, I want to play StarCraft again.
It should come as no surprise that the Battle.net forums went apeshit over the news that Jay Wilson is walking away from Diablo III. What is a surprise, however, is that the backlash was so nasty that Blizzard exec (and lead World of WarCraft designer) Rob Pardo stepped in to tell fans to a.) cool it and b.) blame him for the problems that have plagued the game.
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Diablo III, myself. It’s mostly been love, though.
Jay Wilson, the man who oversaw the development, release, and maintenance of Diablo III, is stepping down as Game Director. Wilson broke the news via a lengthy post on the game’s official forums. He’ll remain an employee at Blizzard; he’ll just be working on other projects.
This is a good thing in my opinion. I’m sure Jay’s a great guy but he held things back. It’s time for someone else to step up and (continue to) take the Diablo III team in the right direction.
