Diablo 3 Launch Website is Now Live

Blizzard have made the launch website for Diablo 3 live. From the website:

The “Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise” site will reward you and your friends for preparing to face the impeding demonic invasion and rising up as the heroes of Sanctuary. You’ll be able to find new information, videos, unlockable content, contests, a banner customization tool, and your chance to win five exclusive sigils for use on your customizable banner when Diablo III launches. Venture to New Tristram, seek the fallen star, and fulfill your heroic destiny”.

The website contests give you the chance to win gear signed by the Diablo 3 development team. Each week leading up to released there will be a new class revealed with information and videos of the class in action, as well as short stories featuring that particular class. The launch here is the Demon Hunter class. The video is a mixture of a cool graphic novel style and Demon Hunter gameplay.

Probably the most exciting part of the website is the art contest. As stated on the Blizzard site, “The Portrait of a Champion art contest challenges artists far and wide to depict one (or more) of the Diablo III classes rising to meet the challenges of the demonic invasion. Artists who instill the essence of the campaign’s theme — “Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise” — in their images can win some impressive loot! Prizes include ASUS monitors with 3D Vision kits, ASUS video cards, Antec Diablo III computer cases, and SteelSeries peripherals. See the Portrait of a Champion Art Contest rules for further details, or enter now. We’ll be adding approved images to the gallery up until the deadline, so keep an eye out”.
