Blizzard Needs Your Help Designing Diablo III’s Next Legendary Item

on October 19, 2013 2:19 PM

Have you ever played a game and thought to yourself that you could have designed something better? If you ever had a idea for the Diablo franchise, now is the time to share it.

Diablo III’s development team is standing by with open ears. According to the Diablo blog, the development team is offering a behind-the-scenes look at the design of the game’s Legendary class items, by tapping into the knowledge of the Diablo community for help in crafting and perfecting an item it plans to implement into the game.

The “Design a Legendary” project, will guide participants through “all the different design stages behind bringing a single Legendary item to life, from concept to creation to iteration, all the way through animation and implementation.” It will take design feedback from players to help guide the development of the weapon, shield or armor.

Blizzard community manager Stephanie “Lylirra” Johnson went on to state, “that they will be holding global community votes, hosting podcasts, soliciting ideas, and even running a contest or two to ensure that this is truly a worldwide, player-driven initiative.”

Not only will you have a part of creating an item of the game but you will walk away with a better understanding of everything that goes into designing, thus enhancing your experience with the game.

Diablo III has already released for PC, Xbox 360 and  PS3.  The PS4 version will be released in 2014, while an Xbox One version has not been announced.
