Diablo 3 stricken with a 'cowpocalypse' in honor of its third anniversary

Today marks the third anniversary of Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo 3, and the developer is celebrating in a very familiar way — with cows, as announced on

"We've recently herd rumors of an invasion," the post reads. "Not one of a demonic nature, mind you, for those we are quite accustomed to. No, these rumors allege that townships throughout Khanduras are being overrun by bipedal, bardiche-bearing bovine who are luring weary adventurers to the proverbial slaughter through moosterious orange portals.

"There are no homicidal heifers. There is no invasion. And, more specifically, there is no cow level. Anyone who claims otherwise is full of bull and simply milking this terrible prank for all that it's worth."

The event, of course, is an homage The Secret Cow Level in Diablo 2, where players fight bovine foes. It begins today and continues to "dusk on May 21." You can check out a special cow video, complete with glorious cow puns, by heading to the post and clicking on the face that appears just above the forums section or click on the video above.
