Diablo III Character, Release details and System Reqirements


Experience the intensity of multiplayer in Diablo III with numerous enhancements to make connecting with your friends easier, and cooperative gameplay more fun online. The game features the interactive environment as a weapon, lay cunning traps, turn destructible objects against your enemies and use environmental obstacle to your advantage. The story takes place in Sanctuary, the dark fantasy world of the Diablo series which was saved 20 years prior by a handful heroes in Diablo II.


Two decades have passed since the demonic lords, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, set out across the world of Sanctuary on a vicious rampage, twisting humanity to their unholy will. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils, the memory fades slowly.
When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram Cathedral seeking clues to defeat new stirrings of evil, a fiery harbinger of doom falls from the heavens, striking the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. This fire from the sky reawakens ancient evils and calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells once again.

It is up to a new generation of heroes to face the forces of evil threatening the world of Sanctuary and battle the unholy forces of the Burning Hells with five all-new character classes. In the previous two games, each class had a fixed gender, but in Diablo III players may choose the gender they would like to play.
