Diablo III: 42 new beta screens, concept art, and a look at player banners

Our cup overfloweth with new assets for Diablo III. In addition to a bunch of concept art, we’ve got forty-two new screenshots showcasing the recently revealed real money auction house and gameplay from the Diablo III beta. We also have some interesting comparison screenshots of Diablo III’s banner system.

As you keep playing Diablo III, your character’s banner will be updated to track your progress. As you upgrade your gear, play PvP, earn lots of achievements, and keep on clicking, your character banner will continue to look more and more badass. Check out what a fresh male monk looks like and see how his banner will grow in the screenshots below.

Above: Well-bearded he may be, but this monk is basic at best

Above: What the same character and banner will look like after you’ve played for a while

Above: It's always better to bring some friends

Above:’s cross game chat interface will also get a facelift. Here’s what your WoW-playing friend will look like when he should be clicking on monsters in Diablo III with you

Above: Whether you want to party with friends or a PUG, finding a group should be much more convenient than it was on the old with Diablo I & II

Above: A closer look at the Demon Hunter. You can see our entire screenshot gallery for Diablo III here

Above: Players will be able to buy and sell in-game items and gold for real money with Diablo III’s auction house. More details on how Blizzard plans to broker trading here

    This game just can't come out fast enough.

    Ironically every time a new piece of information comes out about this game I grow less interested in it. I hope it turns out good though.

    I am going to get a new PC or labtop just for this game.

    I get the feeling, blizzard will put this into WoW sometime in the future.

    I'm sorry, Tyler: I read the title as "and a look at player BONERS"...TalkRadar is too all-encompassing...

    I want to be in this beta so damn bad.

    You forgot to add the word 'crest' for the wizard's crest..

    Diablo III news! And the screenshots are so beautiful. And the interface is so clean. And the concept art is so pretty. I just wanna cry. I can't wait to get my hands on this. I feel giddy like a little school girl once more just thinking about some Diablo time.

    I am so hyped about this game! I am a PC player and there is so little available anymore. The Diablo series is amazing and I expect no less from this one. The only thing I want is for it to hurry up!!!
