- Slashdot: 诸如复活节彩蛋和秘密,已成为暗黑破坏神系列的标签.是否在暗黑破坏神3中,我们有同样的期待?有提示吗?
- Leonard Boyarsky:没,没有提示.他们不会是复活节彩蛋.我们到处打太极:可能是某个网站的一些复活节彩蛋以供玩家发掘;也可能是在错误的方向送给玩家的红色鲱鱼.但大多数东西仅仅是自然发展过程中的一些插曲.当你开发某些区域,有些事情来了,我们总是乱抛的各种想法和提示.是的,我们谈论了这么久，我们正在计划做不少东西呢.
暗黑破坏神3典藏版里还包括另一个赠品-魔兽世界的宠物:出自于暗黑破坏神2和暗黑破坏神3里的傀儡萨满(Fetish Shaman).(由巫医的法术妖术的召唤) The model was first datamined from a WoW patch in September 2011, with speculation at the time that this was the D3CE pet. Those suspicions were confirmed a month later, when Blizzard revealed the contents of the D3CE in October 2011. The pet was enabled in a WoW patch in early December 2010. Fans observed that was pointless, since without the D3CE, and the redemption code fans can obtain from within it, there is no way to enable the Fetish Shaman pet. Nevertheless, Blizzard had the pet ready for late 2011, as that was Diablo 3's initially-planned release date, and even after the game was delayed the WoW patch guys saw no reason to hold back the pet even though no one would be able to enable it for months yet. Oddly, the Fetish Shaman is not riding piggyback, as these demons always have in the game.
Tyrael's Charger a World of Warcraft epic mount, a flying horse wearing Tyrael-styled armor, was first discovered through data-mining on October 28, 2011. The full details were revealed soon afterwards, and the mount was available as a perk with the purchase of the twelve-month World of Warcraft Annual Pass. Subscribers to that plan also received a free copy of Diablo III upon release, and along with other perks. Screenshots showing off the creature can be seen below.
DOTA's Witch Doctor
One of the characters in Blizzard's DOTA is a version of the Diablo III Witch Doctor. See this news post from Blizzcon 2011 for the game trailer video, as well as video of a Blizzcon panel devoted to their DOTA project.
Diablo 3 Easter Eggs in Starcraft 2
Blizzard continued their habit of working in inter-game Easter Eggs, by placing numerous amusing Diablo 3 items in Starcraft 2.
- See a comprehensive list of the dozens of SC2 Easter Eggs in this SC2 Wiki.
Diablo head decals are amongst the many offered for customizing your units in Starcraft 2. These may be unlocked through achievements over Battle.net, their exact function isn't yet known.
They can be used to customize units on player-made maps, as the example Terran Marine shows. The images were first found on the Battle.net site, on July 18, 2010.
Deckard Cain Achievement
- This achievement is after you finish the Gates of Hell mission in planet Char. There’s a cinematic right after, then you see an interactive Raynor, General Waterfield and Tychus with a char background. The achievement suddenly pops when that loads. It’s interactive as in you hover the mouse over Raynor, the General and Tychus, and they become silhouette-highlighted, you click them and they have a cutscene-dialogue.
The first and most dramatic is an appearance of a miniature Diablo in a SC2 single-player mission called "The Devil's Playground." Diablo is just a "critter," one of the forms of ambient life, but it's definitely Big Red, though he's small and gloriously burning, the model looks to be the same one used for the World of Warcraft mini-pet.
A screenshot can be seen to the right. See the original news post for more details and a movie of the little guy.
Funny Movie Names
An animated theater sign on the "Media Blitz" map shows various scrolling movie titles, all of them various inside jokes. The names include:
- Cineplex 5000: Diablo: The Musical. ... Enter the Dragoon ... Ladies of Lordaeron 3 ... NWO: Silent Takeover ... Night of the Zerg VI ... The Perfect Psi-Storm.
Map information: City Billboards [72.58.113.02] in the map editor. It is named THorner04.SC2Map. It's where Tychus Findlay mounts the Thor and wrecks havoc in Korhal city to broadcast off-world the tape where Mengsk says he wont let anyone stand on his way, and he will rather see the sector burned to ashes.
Diablo Marine Avatar

Laptop Game Selection
In one of the Single Player missions: Ghost of a Chance, on the planet Avernus, a laptop is found on a desktop in one building. The World of Warcraft character selection screen is displayed on a different screen, while the main screen shows a message: Want to play a game?" Various options are listed, including Diablo III:<ref> 模板:Cite web</ref>
- Fighter Combat
- Desert Warfare
- Diablo III
- Theaterwide Tactical Warfare
- Global Thermonuclear War
This is a larger Easter Egg referring to the 1983 Matthew Broderick movie WarGames, in which a computer hacker starts playing games with the central computer at NORAD, inadvertently nearly starting World War III. The computer in that film's usual prompt is, "Would you like to play a game?" With Global Thermonuclear War as the last of several options.
Diablo Easter Eggs in Other Games
The Diablo games are milestones in video game history, and have been referenced in numerous other titles, both RPGs and other types of games. This section lists Easter Eggs in other games that refer to elements of Blizzard's Diablo games.
Borderlands, a role-playing shooter created by Gearbox, included a number of homages to Diablo. 
- A demon named 模板:Iw.
- A weapon called 模板:Iw with, "Ahhh… Fresh meat" in its description.
- A unique item called the "cracked sash," with very high stats. (This reverses the common Diablo 2 joke about a worthless item drop that contained only a "cracked sash."
Flagship Studios was formed in 2003 by Max Schaefer, Erich Schaefer, David Brevik, and Bill Roper along with numerous other former Blizzard North employees. Their first (and last) title was Hellgate:London, an ARPG set in a demon-infested, post-apocalyptic future. The title was directly influenced by Diablo in numerous ways, but only included a few direct homages. The most obvious was Wart, an annoying, one-legged NPC boy who was the object of some early game quests. He was an homage to the infamous one-legged 模板:Iw, of Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 fame.
RPG Sacred has a map area modeled after the town of Tristram, as seen in Diablo I. A quote from an informative Sacred fansite, which was the source of the images below: 
- Some of you might not know but Tristram is a famous little village connected with the game Diablo. In Diablo 1 this is the place where your hero starts out. In Diablo 2 it has been destroyed and is where you collect Deckard Cain from. There is a little village in Sacred which is tremendously similar to the Tristram in the original Diablo. It is located north of Moorbrook and shouldnt be very hard to find. Cloest portals to this place are the Mystdale Castle portal and Valley of Zhurag-Nar portal.
- Also note when you enter the village the residents all turn into zombies and will start attacking you. This is also the town where Glubba wants to be taken (end of Act 3). And I'm pretty sure this is also the village which is referenced by a rune stone somewhere around Mascarell.
Two images showing off the Sacred version of Tristram can be seen below. Click them for larger views.
