Heart Of The Swarm In First Half Of 2013, D3 Expansion Plans
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Activision Blizzard recently announced the results of its third fiscal quarter. During the post-earnings conference call the company revealed that StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is scheduled for release in the first half of 2013, and officially confirmed plans for a Diablo III expansion.

Beta testing for Heart of the Swarm is well underway and the development team has been collecting great feedback from the community. Just last week, we made a major content update to the beta in order to test some important community features, which have been well-received by players. These features are designed to improve the social aspect, as well as the overall user experience for StarCraft players. We’re working hard towards a first-half 2013 launch for Heart of the Swarm.

Stephen Ju (Crédit Suisse AG, Research Division): The prior iterations of Diablo II expansion pack released about 1 year after the game itself came out. So wondering if you have anything you share in terms of whether or not you have a similar plan for Diablo III to keep your users engaged?

Morhaime: We do have a plan. An expansion planned for Diablo. I don’t have any timeline to talk about. I think that the most important thing for us always comes down to the quality of the expansion and the gameplay, and so that will be a big factor in terms of driving our schedule.

6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

Larian Studios has unveiled a new video for the upcoming Divinity: Original Sin, a new role playing game for Mac and Windows set in the world of the Divinity Series. This time the developers chose to showcase the progress the game's level designers have made thus far. Divinity: Original Sin will feature an isometric 3D viewpoint, a party of adventurers to control, turn based combat, and an easy to use toolset for modding the game.

The orcs of Tanoroth are on the march, wielding magic never seen before: bloody, deadly, reality-bending. The free nations of Rivellon are about to fall beneath their blades. Yet there are two unlikely heroes who can resist this savage magic: a condemned warrior released from his chains and a mystic heroine restored to life. Will they be strong enough to cope with the sins of their past? And will they be strong enough to counter the even greater threat that hides behind the marching orcs?
