Blizzard Entertainment unveiled the timelapse video of The Making of the Diablo Mural shown at Hahnentorburg Rudolfplatz. It is important to all GamesCom 2011 attendees to attend Hahnentorburg for a chance at a Diablo III beta key. Contest details at the bottom. Additionally, IGN UK nominated Diablo III for the IGN People’s Choice Award. You can vote for Diablo III here.
As part of Blizzard Entertainment’s presence at gamescom 2011, artist Manfred Stader has created a bespoke piece of Diablo III street art. The image depicts Diablo accompanied by demons bursting forth from the very streets of Cologne. What’s unique about the image, aside from the content, is that it has been designed to be viewed in full 3D perspective. As a result, it produces an unnerving glimpse into The Burning Hells themselves.
The artist began production of this very special piece on Monday August 15, situated at Hahnentorburg Rudolfplatz in central Cologne.
Don’t forget we have also organised a competition based on your photographs of this artwork — you can find details about that here.
