Over the weekend, website Force Strategy Gaming claimed to have gotten hold of some leaked screenshots and, more importantly, footage from the upcoming Diablo III beta.
The gameplay won’t have much of interest unless you’re a die-hard Diablo fan. Of more general interest — or maybe, as a menu fetishist, this is just me — is the game’s front end.
While the normal rumour disclaimers apply (could be fake, blah blah), this footage and its accompanying screens look pretty good! It’s got the same slick feel to it as StarCraft II (no surprises there), managing to combine something pretty with something that needs a lot of clicking through, a rare feat in game design.
We’ve contacted Blizzard for confirmation on the media’s authenticity, and will update if we hear back.
