'Diablo III' YouTube Footage Fake!


Posted July 3, 2008 - By Blair Herter

Youtube user T2Darlantan recently posted a series of videos in which he claims he's playing a beta of Diablo III'.  While initially blinded by our excitement for the game, upon further investigation we noticed that the actual game he was playing bore a striking resemblance to the gameplay footage that Blizzard uploaded to their website in the wake of this year's Blizzard Entertainment Worldwide Invitational. So we did what every self-respecting news outlet would do and reached out to our inside man at Blizzard for comment.  Here's what he had to say:

"I took a quick glance at the video and it's very apparent to me that he's doing some kind of trick with the gameplay video we released, " The Blizzard Spokesperson said. "There is no 'beta' of the game yet. He doesn't truly know any 'secrets' about the game as he claims... We wouldn't choose a random guy on youtube recording from his living room as a vehicle of information for our games."

Myth: busted.  Shame on you T2Darlantan.  Shame on you indeed.
