The First Diablo 3 Beta Screenshots

Posted 2 Sep 2011 by

An unknown early bird beta tester has leaked a fair number of screenshots from the Diablo III beta, and they were spotted by Popez and posted in our brand new Diablo 3 Beta forum. They’re not great quality, and the gameplay action is fairly lacking, but they show some interesting scenes in town, mostly involving NPC dialogues.

Let’s not kid ourselves, though. You want to see screenshots from the beta, since it means that someone outside of Blizzard is playing it already. And the next person…. could be you?

There is one surprising image, though. Note this one, with the 17 second timer (presumably it starts at 20) to leave a game, when not in town. That seems a fairly sturdy anti-chicken hack measure, one that will stop players from being able to bail out in the middle of danger to avoid death. Not a big deal for softcore characters, but Hardcore beware, especially if you’re prone to disconnects!

We’ve added several image galleries for DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Beta Images. There are brand new leaked ones in the Beta Screenshots and Beta Interface, and we’ll be adding shots to the Items and Misc/Humor galleries as well. All these galleries are publicly-accessible for uploads, and anyone with a forum account on this site can upload their own images there. Once you get into the beta test, (be confident!) you are encouraged to upload your cool images there, for everyone to see.
