We’re building a legacy now says Diablo III’s game director

Blizzard’s Josh Mosqueira has been talking about the future of the Diablo III now that they have managed to get the Reaper Of Souls expansion and all of the console versions out of the door.

He explained in a new interview that they have the full team that wrapped the Reaper Of Souls expansion still working hard on the game, maintaining it and looking for things to add and improve with the aim of building a legacy.

“We have pretty much the team that wrapped up Reaper Of Souls,” Mosqueira stated when asked how many are still working on the game. “We’re at the point where I think we’ve gotten most of what we wanted into Reaper Of Souls and now we’re really just entering this… we’re trying to build a legacy now. I think we’re seeing as a team that this is our chance, this is our love letter to Diablo.”

“We play the game non-stop,” he added, “we’re super passionate about it, and now we get to start adding all the things that we really get geeked out about, that our players also get excited about. We have such a strong, solid foundation. I think Adventure Mode, looking back, we didn’t realize it but it’s such a powerful engine for us to be able to add new content, vary the experience and it really unshackled our ability to really let the players sort of explore and have fun.”

‘Diablo III’ season 3 starts April 10

From US Battlenet website

Game giant Blizzard has formally announced that April 5 marks the end of season 2 of their massive role playing game “Diablo 3,” and the Friday after that, April 10, will mark the start of the third season.

The date for the old season’s conclusion is the same worldwide, albeit at different 9 p.m. time zones. However, season 3 will start on April 10 at 10 p.m. Pacific for North America, and 6 p.m. CEST and KST for Europe and Asia, respectively.

As with the end of the very first season, there will be a season rollover period. Seasonal heroes will roll over into the main account, along with the equipped gear and stashed gold. In addition, all non-duplicated items in the inventory, shared stash, Achievements; Artisan recipes, blood shards, and paragon levels will also carry over to the player’s main account. However, conquests will be lost since it cannot be converted to non-seasonal heroes.

Hardcore gamers who achieved reward requirements will enjoy a variety of goodies and items once season 2 ends and the next season starts. All players who have reached level 70 during the season will be able to get the exclusive Boots and Pants transmog items. These can be immediately accessed once a season hero has reached level 70 by visiting the Mystic Miriam and accessing the Transmogrification tab.

There are also numerous banner rewards for players who earn Achievements. Rewards are based on the number of Achievements the player has, and will have corresponding banner items, from Banner Shape to the highest point-reward, a Banner Sigil.

In other “Diablo 3″ news, there is a rumor that since the second season is nearing its end, the roll over period would also be the time for the next patch to be released. Patch 2.2 is still on its testing phase, but recent changes such as rebalanced class skills and additional new legendaries suggest the test is nearing completion and the update is ready to roll out.
