New Diablo III website teases hero classes

Diablo III is getting closer and closer to its May 15 release date and Blizzard is now ramping up the marketing to prepare all those anxious gamers who have been waiting nearly four years for the third game in the action-RPG series. Today, Blizzard launched a new teaser web site that will not only reveal more details about Diablo III but also promises fans a chance to get some in-game items and real world prizes.

The "Darkness Falls, Heroes Rise" site will give more details about each of the five hero classes in Diablo III, with a new reveal each week. The first to get the treatment is the Demon Hunter, complete with a new trailer showing off some gameplay footage and a new short story featuring the character.

The new site also offers Diablo III fans a way to get some in-game items before the game is released. Users can design their own banners to obtain some in-game sigils. You can check out the banners created by others on the site and "like" them if you wish. You can also "like" and share content on the site via Facebook in order to unlock even more content. There's also an art contest that will net the winners a number of hardware prizes.
