The Art of Diablo III > Fans, Watch This!
As easily my most anticipated game this year (and many before then), this presentation from Christain Lichtner (the game’s art director) is incredibly interesting and informative on the progression of the game’s art direction over the years. Having played the D3 beta for the last few weeks (short review coming), I can attest to the pure beauty of the game (and I’ve seen only the first act of four!).
There has been much angst and discussions from players in the community about the game not looking realistic or not ‘Diablo’ enough. This presentation shows clearly photo-realism was not the intent and it is very much Diablo. Having been a long-time player of all of the Diablo games, I am very pleased with the art direction that game has gone and this presentation only highlights the amazing level of detail the Diablo team has put into the game. May 15th come already!
