Back in 2005, Blizzard decided to go back to the drawing board on Diablo III and scrapped much of what it had under development. What you might not know is that the studio already had a capable version up and running. Newly discovered screenshots show off what it looked like, and how different it is from what we know of Diablo III today.

Kotaku writes that Blizzard had planned Diablo III as a battle through hell, as expected, but also heaven. Some of the screenshots show areas called "Heaven" and the "Angelic Lands." In these areas, the player faces snakes, snake-men, and gritty winged creatures.

The remaining screenshots are of an area called "Keep." No enemies are shown in the Keep, but we do get a solid look at its architecture. Overall, the art style looks very similar to Diablo II, but using 3D graphics.

Today, Diablo III looks much different (see below), and that's to be expected. Blizzard hasn't been sitting around on its thumbs for the past five-and-a-half years. Not only does it look different, but the current version of the game has a totally new style. Maybe Blizzard wanted something that stood out more from the previous entries in the series?

Screens in the link. Not trying to take away from the current build which looks great; but the old one is very slick and in my opinion would still be very playable today.

Did Titan quest come out around 05? Maybe they wanted to keep those releases spread.

Crazy to see these screens though. Blizz has a LOT of canceled shit. Would be cool to see the rest of what they have.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

lol sc ghost comes to mind. i was never too hyped on that one though

as for the screens, w/e i don't really mind that they scrapped it. their judgement is obviously pretty good with releases and stuff. i really did like looking through them though.
