    Rob Pardo talks Battle.Net monetizing

    So Julian Wilson told us that you guys are looking monetize Battle.Net in some way. Is that right?

    Rob Pardo: Wow, that's an evil way of putting it. Julian's turning into a business guy on me. Here's the way I would put it. We're definitely not looking at turning Diablo into a subscription based game. It's clearly not an MMO, so it's not appropriate to do a business model like that. The way we approach all of our games now, is we come up with what we think is a great game, and then we wrap the appropriate business model around it. If that's just a box price, then that's that.

    With Battle.Net we're definitely looking at possible different features that we might be able to do for additional money. We're not talking about Hellgate or anything like that. We're not going to tack things on. I think World of Warcraft is a great example to look at. We charge people if they want to switch servers or if they want name changes, things that aren't core to the game experience, they're really just optional things that some people want. It takes us some development work to do it, so it makes sense to charge for it. We would never do something like say to get the full game experience, you'll have to pay extra.

    Basically -- No P2P(Pay to Play), and no microtransactions for actual things in the game.

    Meaning the game is going to be free no monthly subscriptions.

    Diablo III Official Announcement:

    Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today revealed Diablo III, the newest entry in its critically acclaimed action role-playing-game franchise. The announcement was made during the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational at the Porte de Versailles Convention Centre in Paris, France. A cinematic trailer and an extended gameplay demonstration with commentary from the development team introduced the game to the thousands of players in attendance.

    "We've wanted to expand on the epic story and gameplay elements of the Diablo universe for some time now," stated Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "We know that players have also been long awaiting a return to the series, so we're very excited to be sharing this announcement with Blizzard gamers here in Paris and around the world today."

    Diablo III will pick up the story twenty years after the events of Diablo II. Mephisto, Diablo, and Baal have been defeated, but the Worldstone, which once shielded the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary from the forces of both the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, has been destroyed, and evil once again stirs in Tristram. Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen. The first two characters classes -- the barbarian and the witch doctor -- were shown as part of the announcement at the event today in Paris. Diablo III will feature a custom 3D-graphics engine to render lush indoor and outdoor areas of Sanctuary with a high level of detail and vivid special effects. The game's physics-enhanced environments will be interactive and destructible, offering traps and obstacles that create added danger for players and monsters alike. These elements, along with a new quest system and random scripted events, will be integrated into the game's random-level generator, giving Diablo III the ultimate combination of dynamic gameplay and replayability. Cooperative and competitive play will be available online through an upgraded version of Blizzard Entertainment's renowned online gaming service,
    Diablo III FAQ:
    What is Diablo III?
    We’re developing Diablo III to be the definitive action role-playing game, and a true continuation of the Diablo series. Players will create a hero from one of five distinct classes, such as barbarian or witch doctor, each equipped with an array of spells and abilities. As these heroes adventure through rich and varied settings, unraveling an epic storyline and engaging in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, they’ll grow in experience and ability and acquire items of incredible power.

    The game takes place on Sanctuary, a world of dark fantasy. Unbeknownst to most of its inhabitants, Sanctuary was saved some twenty years ago from the demonic forces of the underworld by a few brave and powerful heroes. Most of those warriors who directly faced the armies of the Burning Hells -- and were fortunate enough to survive -- went mad from their experiences. And most of the others have buried their haunted memories and pushed the horrors from their thoughts. In Diablo III, players will return to Sanctuary to confront evil in its many forms once again.
    Diablo III will be a fitting sequel to Diablo II, with the easy interface, fast-paced action, and visceral gameplay that Diablo players have come to expect and enjoy. It will also include many new features that will take the Diablo action-RPG experience to the next level. We look forward to going into much more detail on our plans for Diablo III as development on the game progresses.

    What’s new about Diablo III compared to the previous Diablo games?
    Exciting new classes like the witch doctor bring new gameplay options to the table. Returning classes, like the barbarian, have been completely redone with new skills to give them a feel unique to Diablo III. New customization options will provide for an even greater level of character specialization than the previous Diablo games, allowing the player to create unique characters brimming with power.
    Diablo III is powered by a new graphics engine that can display characters and hordes of monsters in lush, fully 3D environments. Powerful special-effects systems and Havok-powered physics allow the player to lay waste to the Hells' minions in spectacular ways.
    Also, Diablo III builds on the random environments of the previous Diablo games by introducing a host of new ways to create random scripted events throughout the game. This creates a dense and exciting world alive with quests, NPCs, dynamic encounters, and viciously challenging new monsters and bosses. Diablo III's environments add a great deal of interactivity to the game, including destructible elements and environmental obstacles that can be turned against your enemies.
    In addition, Diablo III will benefit from upgrades that will provide some exciting new features for players. Cooperative online play remains a primary focus, with multiple enhancements being planned to make connecting with your friends easier and cooperative gameplay even more fun. We'll have more details on all these aspects as well as other exciting new features at a later date.

    Can you give an overview of Diablo III's storyline?
    It has been twenty years since the events of Diablo II. Of those who faced the Lords of Hatred, Terror, and Destruction in the battle over the fate of Sanctuary, there are few still living who can bear to remember the horrors that the Prime Evils wrought upon the world. And of those who did not witness the terrible events firsthand, most believe the stories to be little more than myth. But something evil is stirring once again in Tristram, and it may already have claimed its first victim: Deckard Cain.

    Will there be any other familiar faces in Diablo III (other than Deckard Cain)?
    Yes. Players will encounter several new characters as well as a number of characters from the previous games.

    Will players be visiting any familiar locations in Diablo III, such as Tristram?
    Yes, definitely. Players will return to Tristram and certain other locations from the previous games, and they'll be exploring new areas of Sanctuary as well.

    How many character classes are included in Diablo III? What are they?
    Five character classes will be included in the game, two of which, the barbarian and witch doctor, were revealed when the game was announced at the 2008 Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational. The other classes will be announced at a later date.

    Will players be able to choose the gender of their character, regardless of class?
    Yes. Players will be able to create male and female characters for all five classes.

    Will Diablo III be playable over What new features can we expect?
    Yes, Diablo III will be playable over, and will offer some exciting new features to enhance players' Diablo III experience. We'll announce specifics and go into much more detail at a later date.

    Will there be a single-player component in addition to multiplayer?
    Yes. In addition to battling the hordes of the Burning Hells cooperatively with friends over, players will be able to adventure through the world of Diablo III solo. More details on both the single-player and multiplayer experience will be revealed at a later date.

    What will questing be like in Diablo III? Will it be similar to Diablo II?
    Our plans for the story and quest mechanics are still under wraps. We'll go into detail on those elements of the game at a later date. We can say, however, that we expect to have class-based quests in addition to the main story-line quests.

    What engine is Diablo III running on? What graphical enhancements are included?
    Diablo III runs on a custom 3D game engine for rendering full-3D characters and environments. The 3D game engine not only simulates advanced animation sequences and sound effects, but also uses a custom physics engine that allows for realistic object dynamics and cloth simulation.

    What are the system requirements for Diablo III?
    We'll announce specific system requirements at a later date.

    When will Diablo III be released?
    It's too early to estimate Diablo III's release date. As with all Blizzard Entertainment games, our goal is to create a game that is as fun, balanced, and polished as possible. We intend to take as much time developing Diablo III as is necessary to ensure the game meets our own high expectations and those of our players.

    Will the game be released in multiple countries? Will the release be simultaneous? Which countries and what languages will Diablo III be localized in?
    As with all of our games, our goal with Diablo III is to release the game simultaneously in as many regions as possible, and to localize the game in several languages. We'll have more details to share about countries, languages, and specific dates as we get closer to release.

    Will Diablo III be available on Windows and Mac simultaneously?
    Yes. As with all of Blizzard Entertainment's recent releases, Diablo III will ship for both Windows and Mac simultaneously.

    How much will Diablo III cost? Where can I buy this game? Pricing and availability for Diablo III will be determined and announced closer to the release of the game.
    Diablo III Tidbits:

    Bits and pieces from the post-announcement press conference:

    * No release date as of yet.
    * Development in its "early stages" despite being underway for over four years.
    * Brand new in-house engine developed for Diablo III. Includes Havoc physics.
    * Co-op is fully integrated into the game's design.
    * Will also be released on Mac.
    * Similar in length to Diablo II.
    * Takes place twenty years after Diablo II expansion pack.
    * Only fifty people working on the game at the moment. Content creation the current focus.
    * New will debut with StarCraft II. Even more features by the time Diablo III launches.
    * No console release of Diablo III planned. Other Blizzard title staying on PC and Mac also.
    * Pay to play? Totally undecided, though it could vary between regions. For example, China may because of the popularity of internet cafes and the strict gaming laws that are meant to prevent people becoming addicted.
    * Could be up to 100 enemies on-screen at a time.
    * The ice splash page malarkey was Diablo all along, ditto on the eyes. I am vindicated. The penguin remains a mystery, however.
    * Hellgate: London-esque randomness is in, to an extent. Some maps and what have yous will be static.
    * Low-spec [computer] losers are being catered to.
    * World of Warcraft and The Legend of Zelda heavily influenced boss design and boss gameplay mechanics.
    * E-Sports support is a possibility. Team is attempting to form a business plan that works for that crowd.
    * No character customisation, just gender selection.
    * PvP will likely be included at release.
    * Voice communication will be improved.
    * Beta is a possibility.
    * "Potions are still in the game, they're just not as core an element. So there's a new health system here. Wilson says he actually tried a Halo-style shield system with regenerative health, but didn't put that in because it encouraged players to leave combat. Didn't want to implement a WoW-style health which encourages players to drink and creates downtime when out of combat. Wilson wants the health system to ensure combat, which is health globes were implemented."
    * One health pot restores all players in co-op.
    * Enemies can miss and get weapons stuck in scenery or world.
    * Player characters will be fully voice acted.
    * Four-to-five person co-op groups.

    the Diablo developers of Blizzard moved out.. they are making Hellgate: London in their own studio.
    but a new Diablo game would be so nice.. i loved Diablo II.

    The links you posted all point to diablo2, and there wont be any diablo3 very soon for obvious reasons.

    Why France?, because most people who play Diablo are there! Even now, its like the Starcraft in Korea.
    Links for this please.
