New Act Two and Act Three Screenshots

Posted 10 May 2012 by

It’s been forever since we’ve had new Diablo 3 screenshots! Blizzard didn’t release any during the Diablo 3 beta since what was the point, with fans taking hundreds of screens and movies from the Beta? A few LQ Act Three screens dribbled out of PC Gamer last November, and we’ve seen some cool new Act 2 and 3 areas in the various skill movies Blizzard’s added to the official site, but those were still far from HQ screenshots.

Well, at last the wait is over, as we’ve added new Act Two and Act Three shots released during Jay Wilson’s recent Austrasian press tour to our gallery. To be honest, “new” is a dubious term here, since one of the shots was officially named (on the press kit CD) “witch_doctor_fire_bats_crimson_rune.” Yes, Crimson Rune, from the Runestones system that was removed from the Beta in November 2011, and was gone from the full game/internal build months before then. So no, these shots aren’t in any way “new,” but they contain a good amount of “never before seen” content, so look at the pretty new things and stop complaining about chronology. You’ll see all these areas and monsters in full moving color early next week anyway.

There are one and two Act One shots we haven’t seen before, but as they show areas and monsters we’ve seen a million times before… meh. Let’s skip right to the Act Two screenshots, and if you click the thumbs below you’ll be teleported to our Act Two gallery of delights where you can see 8 newly-added screenshots, all in HQ 1822×1024 dimensions. Three samples are below, and the awesome bone pits of the Desolate Sands are well represented, as are the Desert Tombs.

Two new Act Three screenshots were also released, one showing more battle atop the walls of Bastion’s Keep, the other a fight with a horde of Burning Dead down within the bowels of the fortress.
