2009-02-27 Diablo III Bestiary Update: The Unburied
The Diablo 3 Bestiary now features a new creature from the realm of Sanctuary: the unburied.
Something is dreadfully wrong. Fear is in the air; I can feel it. I was but days out of Tristram when I saw a screaming ball of flame rip across the sky. Surely enough, soon after witnessing this harbinger of doom, I stumbled upon a badly mangled traveler. He was barely able to spit out the tale of the cursed monstrosity responsible for his broken body as his life drifted away. He called his killer "the unburied".
Check out the unburied entry now!

We've also expanded the media galleries with three new pieces of artwork and nine new screenshots.
