The game takes place on Sanctuary, a world of dark fantasy. Unbeknownst to most of its inhabitants, Sanctuary was saved some twenty years ago from the demonic forces of the underworld by a few brave and powerful heroes. Most of those warriors who directly faced the armies of the Burning Hells -- and were fortunate enough to survive -- went mad from their experiences. And most of the others have buried their haunted memories and pushed the horrors from their thoughts. In Diablo III, players will return to Sanctuary to confront evil in its many forms once again.

Diablo III will be a fitting sequel to Diablo II, with the easy interface, fast-paced action, and visceral gameplay that Diablo players have come to expect and enjoy. It will also include many new features that will take the Diablo action-RPG experience to the next level. We look forward to going into much more detail on our plans for Diablo III as development on the game progresses.

Mount and Blade is an open-world action RPG. All three genres are emphasized. The game is entirely open-world, and in fact so open-world that it puts you into the world with no limitations right from the beginning, and then lets you go anywhere and do anything you wish for the entire game. It is basically a huge sandbox. The action is a huge part, or more specifically, the combat. The game uses a simple combat system, but it is very difficult to master. Also, riding on a horse is a highlight of the game, and it is easier to dispatch enemies on top of a mount. Finally, the game uses an extensive character advancement system, with attributes, skills, and weapon proficiencies that can all be improved with levelling up. New equipment and horses can be found or bought, and you can recruit your own army, which will allow you to take on other armies, and even conquer towns and castles.The latest release, Warband, adds multiplayer support and improved graphics to the original game.
