BlizzCon 2019 Panel Transcripts

Diablo Immortal: The Lack of Novel is Worrysome

When Blizzard announces a World of Warcraft, StarCraft, or Diablo game or expansion, sooner or later we will see listings of new novels or books at least 8-12 months before the game/expansion ships.

Now we know that Diablo Immortal is heading to Beta Testing in the middle of 2020 (which can be interpreted to be in June at the earliest).

The Art of Diablo

The Art of DiabloThe Art of Diablo is now available for $26.19 (down from $45 and later $35). The release date has been pushed from October 15 to November 3, 2019 (the day after BlizzCon’s closing date).

Below you can read the book description and three new interior pages from the book. The pages are mostly a temporary mockup preview. The text within is just Lorem Ipsum dummy text.

The preview shows an entry for the Demon Hunter class, as well as concept art created for the Diablo III video game: her weaponry, armor style, standing-up pose; and for the amount of dummy text likely the history of the Demon Hunter.

The Art of Diablo’s interior pages lead in with a foreword from senior artist Brom, and an introduction by former Vice-president of Creative and Franchise development Chris Metzen.

Diablo: Book of Adria Ships on December 4

After a long and troubling hiatus, Diablo: Book of Adria finally got a launch date: December 4th. If you haven’t yet, pre-order Diablo: Book of Adria.

“Sanctuary is home to some of the most dangerous creatures to pull themselves from the pits of hell. Tread lightly, and never fall prey to monsters with the Diablo Bestiary. A celebration of the corrupted beasts and grotesque enemies that players have slain across the franchise’s history, this book is the perfect companion to guide you through the next layer of torment.”

Back cover: “Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo franchise features familiar towns, haunted forests, and exciting dungeons teeming with amazing creatures both good and evil waiting to be discovered. Arm yourself against them all with the Book of Adria: A Diablo Bestiary. This tome includes dozens of original illustrations and new lore about the demons, beasts, risen dead, and angels that roam the world of Sanctuary and the realms beyond.

Written by the mysterious witch Adria, this instructional guide shows you the ways of forbidden magic and provides arcane knowledge about the creatures of the land. It also documents Adria’s personal quest for power– a quest so all-consuming, it leads her to sacrifice everything to Diablo, Lord of Terror.”

Sanctuary’s newest heroes can join the fight in style with the Nintendo Switch Diablo III Eternal Collection Bundle, and amass vast riches with the help of the Treasure Goblin amiibo

IRVINE, Calif.—November 2, 2018—The minions of Hell have never been stronger, but reinforcements have arrived! Blizzard Entertainment announced today that Diablo III® Eternal Collection™ is available now for Nintendo Switch, enlisting a new legion of heroes into the eternal struggle against the Burning Hells.

The Eternal Collection includes every feature, refinement, and upgrade added to Diablo III to date, including the critically acclaimed Reaper of Souls® expansion, and last year’s Rise of the Necromancer™ pack, as well as platform-exclusive bonus items such as a cosmetic armor set inspired by Ganondorf, the iconic villain from The Legend of Zelda series. With a five-act story campaign that spans the deadly world of Sanctuary, an endlessly playable Adventure Mode, and seven powerful classes to master, Diablo III Eternal Collection is the perfect all-in-one package for novice demon-slayers, and veterans eager to cleanse Sanctuary on the go.

“The Eternal Collection delivers everything Diablo III has to offer to Nintendo Switch players, and the great conflict between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells is now in their hands,” said J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment. “We look forward to sharing all of the challenges, adventures, and sweet, sweet loot with our newest allies in Sanctuary.”

Players looking to commemorate the arrival of the Lord of Terror to Nintendo’s newest system also have the option of purchasing the Nintendo Switch Diablo III Eternal Collection Bundle—forged specifically for Sanctuary’s newest heroes and styled to evoke the dark visage of the Lord of Terror. Available starting today, the bundle includes a Diablo III-themed Nintendo Switch system and dock, a Diablo III-edition carrying case, and a download code for Diablo III Eternal Collection.

Heroes hoping for an edge in their crusades will want to take advantage of Diablo III Eternal Collection’s amiibo™ support—and seize a Treasure Goblin amiibo, available in December. Scanning the Treasure Goblin amiibo opens a portal to Greed’s Domain, the mythical Treasure Realm replete with riches and guarded by the Baroness herself. In addition, players can scan any available amiibo figure once per day to spawn packs of powerful Champion monsters to battle for experience and loot.

Diablo III Eternal Collection has been honed for the Nintendo Switch system, affording players full access to its deep, rewarding gameplay whether they use a Joy-Con or a Pro Controller. The full suite of multiplayer options guarantees that friends can always play together anytime and anywhere. Up to four players can link their consoles wirelessly, connect through the Nintendo Switch Online service, or share a screen on a single Nintendo Switch system.

Diablo III Eternal Collection for Nintendo Switch is available at retail stores everywhere and digitally through the Nintendo eShop at a suggested price of $59.99. For more information, visit Nintendo.

 

Diablo: The Book of Adria Delayed

If you pre-ordered Diablo: The Book of Adria via Amazon, please check out your email inbox for anything labeled Amazon, including your Junk mail. Amazon has notified members that the book has been delayed. That means they require you to approve whether you still want the product. Follow the link in that email to approve the pre-order, letting them know you are still interested regardless of whatever the new release date is. Otherwise, the pre-order will be auto-cancelled by November 14th.

 

The book was supposed to ship today, so it was kinda a last minute change. At this moment the new ETA has not been specified.

NYCC 2018: Titan Comics Diablo has been Cancelled

For several days there have been hints that something was wrong with the Titan Comics Diablo 4-issues mini-series. First, the pre-order page disappeared from Amazon. I had pre-ordered the Kindle version (slated for November 7), and after the page disappeared, nevertheless, I could still see in my Orders page that it was there as pre-ordered. Personally, I thought it only meant that Amazon had sold out all its available pre-order copies.

Then, a fan who owns a Comic Shop in Vancouver responded my tweet:

 

A few days later, Amazon sent me an auto-email informing me that my Titan Comics Diablo # 1 pre-order had been cancelled, and a refund was issued. At that point, things became very grim. There is only one reason for this to happen.

I reported that in the same Tweet thread, mentioning that the Diablo pre-order page also disappeared from @PREVIEWSWorld — and to my surprise, @PREVIEWSWorld responded the tweet with the following:
