Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games. Diablo 1 had four dungeon types with quite different maps for each area, though all were just big squares with different arrangements of the pieces within them. (The Hellfire […]

Diablo 3 Expansion Announcement Hinted for GamescomPosted 31 Jul 2013 by
It was believed that the Diablo 3 Expansion announcement would appear at Blizzcon in November. But since the beginning of the week various emails have been dispatched from Blizzard in the run up to Gamescom next month that suggest otherwise.
There’s speculation that we’ll get a new Diablo cinematic also, as teased by Nick Carpenter of the Blizzard cinematic department:
You wouldn’t hold a press conference for general press to announce some new game systems such as Ladders and itemisation changes. The conference is also scheduled to take place on the first day which means there is plenty of time to squeeze in the many individual interviews in the following days. The press conference is also in addition to the usual panels and Q&A sessions spread over the event. Again, if the announcement was system changes these would be discussed at the appropriate panels rather than convening a press conference for all press.
I expect the announcement and showing of the new cinematic at Gamescom and the first hands-on opportunity taking place at BlizzCon in a few months.
Thanks to nobbie.
