Glorious New Followers Screenshots

Posted 13 May 2011 by

Blizzard sent out a huge visual package along with the Followers material. It includes a HQ version of the Followers movie, 10 screenshots, 3 views of the various Follower’s interfaces, and 3 pieces of concept art. We saw the concept art and the interfaces pretty clearly in the leaked movie yesterday, but the screenshots are exceptional. I’d say these are the best Diablo III screenshots we’ve ever seen, but my judgment is probably skewed by the fact that these show new stuff, after we’ve endured endless repeats of the same Blizzcon demo areas/monsters/skills/etc, since like, 2009.

These shots are all from Act One, and for some reason they are very Khazra-centric. I haven’t seen this many goat sacrifices since the Old Testament, but at least they’re new kinds of goats! Javelin throwers, red-headed archers, huge red boss goatmen with axes, and others with very fashionable red stripes in their hair manes. There’s even a mist-shrouded Goatman Shaman with an incredible rack of antlers; just imagine his head mounted over the fireplace in your den?

There are 10 new shots; click the thumbs to see them larger, and click those to see them huge; all of the shots were released at that very popular 2176×1224 resolution. Best of all, we didn’t ruin them with big ugly watermarks, like “those other sites” feel the need to do. Just pure visual enjoyment, for your weary eyes.
