An Announcement Soon?

Recommended Posts

Our guide writer Deadset discovered that Blizzard has updated the background for the Diablo III webpage. Could Blizzard be teasing a new expansion?

From the traditional Westmarch (Reaper of Souls themed background) it has been replaced by a new untitled demonic background.

Blizzard is well-known for teasing the community by adding elements to their websites. To set an example, below, you can see two claws, which were added to the Heroes of the Storm website when they teased with Misha's Claws the addition of Rexxar to Heroes of the Storm.

Something may be brewing! Do you expect an announcement at BlizzCon?

I imagine there will be some announcement. D4 would make me so happy but it very well could be remake announcements or simply another D3 Expac. So, kind of like those quarter egg machines, we'll get something, if its good or something we want will be a whole different discussion. However, I would highly doubt we'll hear anything definitive before blizz con.

Although I believe that there will be a Diablo-related announcement at Blizzcon, as someone on reddit pointed out, this isn't a new art, just an alternate version of this wallpaper. Without Malthael and a bit brighter, but the color palette is the same which indicates that this picture is RoS related and probably not teasing anything unannounced (or doing a poor job for me trying to do it).

Of COURSE Diablo will have a huge reveal. It's their turn in the rotation. Everyone keeps talking about wanting a D2 remaster and that's the highest assumption of what it could be. But why not a Diablo redo? That game started it all, has not aged well (where D2 is still quite good) and could have some REALLY good back story to fill in things like the Horadrim and such.
I wouldn't mind a new expansion or D4, but I think I would be most excited about going back to the beginning and really filling that story out.

I hope there is an announcement for new anything related to Diablo.  I have been having fun with D3 but it's getting just a bit stale and in need of a freash breath of air.  Either bring on a new xpac or lets go to D4.

Hasn't it been their turn for a while? :P

Nah, Overwatch cut in line. It's roughly a 2 year cycle per franchise, and D3 Reaper of Souls was only in 2014 so it's just one release off cycle.

Didn't they have absolutely nothing at Blizzcon last year though for Diablo? I can't remember anything even remotely "big" being even teased

There is another less exciting possibility for the new website background. It's coming up to Halloween soon, a time traditionally associated with evil, demons and suchlike. So maybe Blizz are just joining in with the Halloween theme.

Hopefully there will still be a Diablo-related announcement at Blizzcon though.

What one can get from the panel descriptions is that there will be new content for Diablo 3 - the only question left is, will there be a surprise announcement at the Opening Ceremony, like they have most of the time... ? Personally I cannot imagine anything big as the staff positions for the "unannounced Diablo project" just have been filled up a couple of weeks ago... it will take some time until we will get to see something from that :)

Perhaps it will just be an announcement, with no date inserted. They may have had other people working on the barebones of the project, perhaps old staff that worked on D2 etc., in the event that it is a remaster.

      Some good news today, as the promised extra buff has arrived to Season 21 and we're getting double Horadric Caches! Each time you complete a bounty you'll be getting 2 chests, both affected by the difficulty you're playing at. This will not affect the Challenge Rift cache. The event starts in under an hour, at 8PM CEST, 11AM PDT.

      We also found out that future PTR test cycles will be longer, with an extra week of actual PTR testing when a new season comes.
      Double Bounties (source)
      Hello everyone –
      The trials this season brings upon a new event for the community. Starting from 11am PT today and through the end of Season 21, all bounties will be doubled. What does this exactly entail? All Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. This means that each time you complete bounties in an Act, you will now receive two Horadric Caches as opposed to just one. Double the bounty rewards!
      There are a few things to keep in mind with this effect:
      The bonus cache does benefit from difficulty level; it is essentially as though you completed twice the bounties. The rewards inside the Horadric Caches are otherwise unaffected; drop rates or the amount of individual rewards have not been altered. The bonus cache earned from Challenge Rifts is not affected; this is a separate type of cache.
      Check out our Game Guide for a list of bounty-exclusive Legendary items and more information on the Bounty system.
      On top of this, we would like to note that we plan on extending PTR testing timelines prior to each new season going forward. This will result in a slightly extended season, and will allow for 2 weeks of PTR testing for the community along with an additional week for the team to implement and work feedback/changes in before the season begins. The intention here is to make sure we can apply as much feedback as possible from the community during these PTR timelines while also giving us a good amount of time to test these changes before they go live.
      Thanks again. Happy slaying!

      After the recent Demon Hunter 150 clears, it's time for the second class to break that barrier in Season 21, as we now have a Barbarian max rift clear! Redditor Nexrate has done it, and done it twice it seems, as his first 150 clear was lost to some bugs on the leaderboards, but the second one remained.The build is a modified Rend Wrath of the Wastes, with Zei's instead of Stricken, using the seasonal power to clear everything up, with the big challenge being getting that snowball at the end (and aiming it properly) to finish off the boss in time, with the Coundiut before the boss spawned helping out a bit as well.
      As for the other classes, the closest is a GR 143 Necromancer, followed by a 142 Necro and Witch Doctor.

      After Wudijo's recent Rank 1 and World 2nd GR 150 clear, beating his World First clan-mate by almost 5 minutes, he's made a video detailing his journey to the top. We find out some truly impressive stuff: his refusal to simply grind paragon levels to make the task easier, the fact he plays along side a full-time job and had to sacrifice a lot of sleep, we get to hear about the many near-misses and how he had to learn to perfectly play around the seasonal theme, the fact it took him twice as many keys as he thought it would (5.5K), the fact he used 60 keys an hour, the fact he used as many keys as last season, when he was pushing on 6 classes and a lot more!

      Wudijo scored the world's fastest Solo Greater Rift 150 in time in Season 21 with his Demon Hunter after 5,500 used keys and weeks of attempts. Congrats!
      UPDATE: This is currently the world's second clear of Solo GR150, not world first as we thought, we apologize for the confusion!
      Placeholder for tweet 1289929742800449540   The player completed the rift and killed the Infernal Maiden with 1 minute and 4 seconds remaining on the timer.

      Here are the final moments of the run!

      It's time for some more weirdness as Wudijo is trying some crazy stuff! So how can someone get from level 1 to 70 in 5 seconds you might ask? Well it's easy! You just need 8 hours of torment 16 bounty farming, 1 crash where you almost lose 341 bounty caches on the ground, Custerian Wristguards and Avarice Band! But after that it's only 5 seconds of picking up all the gold and getting a whole lot of XP through the bracers! Enjoy:
