Randomization and level design in the future of Diablo 3
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 […]

Possible Diablo 3 Expansion Titles?

Posted 7 Feb 2013 by

While we’re talking about D3X, there’s an amusing thread about Diablo 3 expansion titles and on the B.net EU forum.

If they had to pick between “Mists of Diablaria” or “Wrath of the Skeleton King”, which one you guess they would pick?
Nakatoir: “Diablo: A New Hope

Well, if your gonna be like that: “Diablo III: The Hells Strike Back” :p

This is a very interesting topic though; it will definitely be cool to see what people think the expansion might get called.

The B.net thread is full of snark and bitterness (shocking, that) but it’s a legitimate question. We’ll almost certainly find out the answer before the official announcement, as people always seem to sniff these things out via legal trademark filings, but it’s fun to speculate now. (Blizzard might even trick us by using some title they bought long ago, ala they got Diablo Salvation back in 2000.)

For reference, here are some other Blizzard game/expansion titles.

  • Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
  • Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos
  • Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
  • World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade
  • World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King
  • World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
  • World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria
  • StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty
  • StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm
  • StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void
  • Seems like 3 or 4 words, ideally with an “of” in the middle, is a pretty safe bet. Some suggestions, basically Mad Libs versions of the others: “Legacy of Cain,” “Beyond the High Heavens,” “Angel of Destruction,” “Wrath of the Witch Queen,” “The Fiery Descent.”
