Getting Ready For Diablo 3 – Refreshing The Story

We are almost exactly one week away from the release of Diablo 3. I know everyone is looking forward to next Tuesday, but are you really ready for it? This series helps you get ready for release day and beyond.

For this post we are going to take a stroll down memory lane and refresh ourselves with the Diablo lore. We are going to accomplish this by watching all of the cinematics in the Diablo series thus far. If you are new to the series this will give you the background you need in the lore to get the most out of D3. These cinematics are great to watch, but if you want to dive deeper into the Diablo lore you can check out the Diablo Wiki Lore page.

Diablo 1 Cinematics:

This is what started it all. While these cinematics don’t really have a whole lot of talking, you really do get a feel for the story. Another thing to note is the amount of cinematics in the first Diablo…very few compared to the rest of the series.
