Diablo III Developer Diary Discusses Alpha Testing

By
Posted on April 17, 2012 AT 07:20am

THE BUZZ: Blizzard has released a second developer diary for Diablo III, this latest entry discussing Alpha testing the game.

Game director Jay Wilson, art director Christian Lichtner, and lead software engineer Jason Regier talk about how nervous they were the first time the game was played by employees during the Alpha stages.

EGM’s TAKE: Diablo III has been in development for many years now and has undergone several major changes during that time. The game that the team Alpha tested probably looks very different to the one that’s about to launch next month. Fans are still hurt by the removal of PvP from the game, hopefully this won’t put them off too much though, and we highly doubt it will damage sales.

What are your thoughts on the removal of PvP? Let us know in the comments below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
