If you’ve been checking out the Diablo website and you’ve played Diablo before then you may just recognize the return of those terribly annoying demonic hordes known as ‘Fallen Ones’. You may still have old thumb injuries from from drying to despatch wave after endless wave of these attackers. Personally I found that at first they got me excited as I could test out some new tricks on them but eventually it all just seemed frustrating at times.
If you visit the website you’ll be able to find some more images. If you haven’t ran off just yet then you should also know that Blizzard released their own ‘origins tale’ regarding these filthy creatures as apparently,
As hard as it is to believe, the fallen ones were once exalted demons of the Burning Hells. They served as Azmodan’s hands, performing acts that he would not, could not involve himself in. They were the instrument of Azmodan’s first failed attempt to usurp power from Diablo and his brothers, and after that failure, the fallen were subjected to the full wrath of Diablo. They were twisted into small, ridiculous imps, in contrast to their previously powerful forms.
Not the most bizarre story I’ve ever heard considering witches, warlocks and most magical folks tend to get ticked off with someone at some point and turn into a toad or something of the sorts. I just think that the most awesomestest part of the whole thing is that is being released simultaneously on both PC and Mac… legend!
