Diablo II Expansion Images, Footage
6:00 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment's endless deluge of press and hype continues with a major score by fansite DiabloII.net. One of their intrepid reporters returned from a visit to London (Blizzard is on a European press tour) with spoils of war -- not just five screen shots, two concept art images and a cinematic still, but also a movie of the Druid character in action.

As the Expansion (known as Diablo II: Lord of Destruction) shapes up for an early-summer release, millions (perhaps billions) of rabid Diablo II fans are champing at the bit. With two entirely new character classes (Druid and Assassin) and a new Act as well as tune-ups of the other character classes, a refined Unique and Rare items system and tons of new Set items to discover, the expansion has enough stuff to keep even the most jaded Diablo II fan clicking happily away for weeks on end. While you will be able to import your characters from a previous adventure, those who want the full experience with the advantages of the new character classes and all the new items will start over from the beginning.

For the screen shots, the movie and more information about the expansion (and Diablo II) than mere mortals can withstand, visit DiabloII.net. Make sure you grab the movie, it is in Bink format (requires the player) but packs a lot of punch for the small download. This expansion pack is expected to be a simultaneous release for Mac and PC.
