If Blizzard's Diablo 3 FAQ page is still acting wonky, or if you're too impatient to read through everything here are the highlights:
  • Return to Sanctuary, the same world as the previous 2 games. The game takes place 20 years after Diablo 2.
  • There are 5 character classes in the game. We know two so far: a new Witch Doctor class, and a completely redone Barbarian class. Male and female options for all classes.
  • Havok-powered physics
  • Building on previous random environments, Blizzard promises "a host of new ways to create random scripted events throughout the game."
  • Upgraded Battle.net
  • Deckard Cain returns, but is noted as the "first victim" of the new horrors
  • Plan is to release the game "simultaneously in as many regions as possible, and to localize the game in several languages." The game will ship for Mac and Windows simultaneously.
