Pressures of Diablo 3 social campaign
Not long to go now before Diablo 3 makes its highly anticipated appearance and although there has been mixed responses by gamers on some of the features that will be presented, the game itself looks to be getting plenty of attention. With Blizzard launching its new Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise mini-website fans can focus their attentions on an art contest, which offers great prizes and create a banner to unlock an exclusive in-game banner sigil that will not be obtainable outside this event.
This site is said to be a big social media campaign, which involves exclusive content that can be opened up once players share enough contest entries on Twitter and Facebook. In an article on Joystiq, they report on how this new Diablo 3 launch site is collapsing with the amount of fans in their quest for more information on the game. With unlocks including developer diaries, wallpapers and a whole lot more Blizzard’s Bashiok says that when the share meter reaches 100%, a final epic unveiling will arise, which will blow the minds of Diablo fans.
At the time of this sites arrival there were plenty of complaints about lost connections, PHP errors and 404 pages and that it has not been as efficient as it was expected, as problems with unlock level not moving from 0% have been experienced including issues with confirmation emails not being sent for entries and galleries which are no longer updating. This has caused gamers to question whether their expectations may have been set too high in eventually reaching the 100% goal.
In other Diablo 3 news, Ubergizmo mentions the launch site offering exclusive in-game sigils for a limited time and this includes a chance to redeem an exclusive in-game sigil that you can use in your Diablo 3 online games. The Demon Hunter is the first class to be detailed by Blizzard offering informative news and videos leading up to its 15th May release, and the Demon Hunter is accessible through the Diablo 3 launch site. To do this you have to customize the sigil to your own preference and you will be able to claim it once the game has launched, although it seem like this offer was available up until yesterday so more are expected nearer the launch date.
Last Tuesday we spoke about everything from criticism to praise from the fans about Diablo 3 and a great amount of mixed responses have come from details concerning the Inferno monster levels and the hardcore difficulty it presents. Do you think that the fans high expectations for Diablo 3 are justified? Are you hoping for more exciting news before its release?
