Gather up folks! You are being visited by foes unlike any you have seen before; a cattle led invasion takes place in Diablo 3 starting now!
The action RPG by Blizzard Entertainment turns three years old today and in order to commemorate the day, developers have gone as weird as you would imagine.
Cowpocalypse moos in with “bipedal, bardiche-bearing bovine who are luring weary adventurers to the proverbial slaughter through moosterious orange portals.”
You will be met with cows in places you have never expected cattle to graze, but more importantly, you will be led to new game areas for exploration for a given period of time.
Effective immediately, we encourage all residents of Sanctuary to steer clear of the wilds. From dawn on May 15 to dusk on May 21, it is also recommended that you avoid entering any strange portals that may or may not lead to alternate planes of existence. This activity cud [sic] be potentially hazardous to your health and, in the opinion of this humble civil servant, is a veally [sic] bad idea in general.
Pun intended, they also went on to stress that warriors don’t need to be afraid despite the looming cowpocalypse because cows don’t kill:
In the meantime, we urge you all to stay calm and remember that cows don’t kill people. Everything ELSE in Sanctuary kills people.
So yeah, you have time from now until the coming Thursday to explore the new areas being offered in Diablo 3, who is interested?
