Diablo Podcast – Blizzcon 2014 Special – Day One
Flux and N3rdwards have dragged themselves away from the demo machines for a quick half hour chat about their experiences with the Diablo 3 demo showcasing the new stuff therein. They’ve positioned themselves in a corridor that seems to be a main hallway used by the cosplay entrants, no doubt enjoying the steady stream of […]
Diablo 3 Panel “What’s Next” Q&A Transcript
I went down to the show floor to watch yesterday’s What’s Next for Reaper of Souls panel, but with my dev interview scheduled for right afterwards, I had to duck out midway through the audience questions. So when I watched the video of the panel today, I skipped right to the end to see if […]

SC2:Hots Release Dated + D3 Digital Loot

Posted 14 Nov 2012 by

Blade wings and Banner sigil.

Yesterday Blizzard revealed the release date for the first Starcraft II Expansion; it’s coming March 12, 2013 and the beta test is now underway.

That’s all well and good if you’re into SC2, but I mention it here to point you guys to the D3 digital goodies that come with the more expensive versions of the game. There’s a WoW pet, of course, but if you buy the DD or the CE version you get special blade wings (reminiscent of the Tyrael wings that came with the D3CE) for in-game display, as well as a new Zergy Banner logo.

Blade Wings & Banner Sigil in Diablo® III
Grow zergified wings in honor of the Queen of Blades, and unfurl an exclusive banner sigil to herald your Swarm pride throughout the besieged world of Sanctuary.

If those wings look familiar, you’re not crazy. We saw them back in September when they were datamined out of the v1.05 patch.

SC2 gives you wings.

You guys interested? Eager for more Starcraft 2, with or without Diablo 3 digital goodies?


Update: As their presence in v1.05 datamining showed, the wings are ready and functional and in the game already, and if you spring for the Digital Deluxe version, you can add them to your Diablo 3 account right now. Thanks to Nurman for video showing off his new Kerrigan-style Barbarian — who *really* doesn’t match the wings.

Who would? Female DH? Maybe a WD with some weird tentacle type armor? (Added pic of wings on a WD, looking pretty awesome, courtesy of Nurman.)
