nothing groundbreaking, really
graphic will be blizzard style, oh really ? I was expecting something more NES ...../Sarcasm
vinking, roman, greek myth like 98% of the game out there
and so ..
I am quite confused about what main the theme of this game is supposed to be..
Cool. Though it ofc will be long time till release.
Very exciting. Q1 2014 alpha is interesting. The RMAH being a possibility is a bit scary, but I'm sure blizzard learned their lesson and what they can get away with, with D3.
For such a big "leak", it doesn't seem to really include any stuff I hadn't seen hinted at in rumors or leaks before. Rumor has it that Stan Sakai was asked to help develop the mythology for the game, so established authors working on it seems to be a reasonable extrapolation of that.
Pretty much every rumor / supposed leak thus far has indicated that the game would involve time travel and that various locations from real world mythologies would be featured (including Atlantis and Teotihuacan).
There's also the fact that Jeffery Kaplan is pretty much already on record saying that the game will be, "sci-fi, near-future, post-apocalyptic, historical [...] all of those combined!" - http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2008/...console-games/
The leaked product slate MMO-Champion posted ages ago, that seemed to peg Hearthstone, would also seem to imply that Blizzcon 2013 will be about (damn) time for the first official announcement.

I would take all that with a big pinch of salt. The writer says they won't reveal their source because they promised them with anonymity, and then goes on to say that they don't know if the source is a he or a she, meaning they don't even know who their source is. Hmm.
This worries me greatly. I know it says "next-gen" and it's all speculation at the moment, but many of the shortfalls of D3 are due to it being essentially ported to consoles.next-gen consoles are still being considered. Probably after launch, as with D3.
All in all, as i said earlier while these leaks can't always be trusted, there is truth coming from in beneath all of this. Rpg, Time travel, different civilisations, in game adds, possibility of a freemium sort of model from the get go? Yep we are in fact narrowing it down slightly. Time travelling and such gives Blizzard the opportunity to do anything they want with the game which is awesome.
