THE BUZZ: Blizzard has released a new CGI trailer for the PC version of Diablo 3 that makes amazing use of the company’s in-house engine. The new clip focuses on set-up with Deckard Cain’s young niece facing off against Azmodan, who promises to unleash his minions upon Sanctuary.

The full description accompanying the trailer:

“As Deckard Cain’s niece, Leah, struggles to make sense of her uncle’s mysterious and disturbing notations, she bears witness to a dark vision. Azmodan, Lord of Sin, towers over the fragile young woman, swearing his armies of the burning Hells shall pour forth into Sanctuary, ravishing the world and all hope of resistance.”

The game, which continues in the same universe of previous Diablo entries, is due to hit PCs in early 2012.

EGM’s TAKE: If this trailer is any indication, the next chapter of the Diablo franchise looks great, and should have fans of the series salivating for more.

What do you think of the trailer? Leave your thoughts below.
