Diablo 3, even by the most optimistic estimates, is a long way off. You see that spec in the distance? Yeah, that's just the next installment of StarCraft 2. The best you can do right now is watch this gameplay footage, grab your mouse and pretend. In a pinch, you could also playTorchlight.
Two decades have passed since the demonic lords, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, set out across the world of Sanctuary on a vicious rampage, twisting humanity to their unholy will. Yet for those who battled the Prime Evils, the memory fades slowly. When Deckard Cain returns to the ruins of Tristram Cathedral seeking clues to defeat new stirrings of evil, a fiery harbinger of doom falls from the heavens, striking the very ground where Diablo once entered the world. This fire from the sky reawakens ancient evils and calls the heroes of Sanctuary to defend the mortal world against the rising powers of the Burning Hells once again.
