Blizzard announced that there's no offline play for its hotly anticipated ARPG Diablo III. You can't play the game at all without an internet connection. In other words, it means you must connect to a server at all times even when you are playing the single-player game. This is really shocking for those hardcore console game fans.

"In both Diablo and especially in Diablo II, I think the intuition for a lot of people when they're playing the game is 'I want to make my character offline away from that scary battle net environment," Rob Pardo, Blizzard's executive producer for Diablo III, claims. "And then once I have this powerful character, I'll jump online.' But the problem with that concept is we can't really detect if they're cheating. They might have the capability to hack their character, things like that, so at that point we can't really allow that character to be in the battle net environment. Then they're going to have to restart their character, which is exactly what happened in Diablo II, which was really unfortunate."
