May 13, 2011 Introducing the Followers
In Diablo III, going it alone is a valid option... but it's not always the safest one. Fortunately, there are others in Sanctuary willing to risk life and limb to strike out at the nightmares sweeping the land. Head over to our new followers page to meet three such companions: Kormac the Templar, Lyndon the Scoundrel, and Eirena the Enchantress. While you represent Sanctuary’s greatest hope for salvation, it never hurts to have a friend watching your back.

May 2, 2011 Cenarion Hatchling for Japan Earthquake Relief
Introducing the latest World of Warcraft companion up for adoption in the online Pet Store: the wild and noble Cenarion Hatchling! This little critter is the twin of the rare Hippogryph Hatchling pet players could randomly encounter in the first World of Warcraft Trading Card Game set, Heroes of Azeroth -- and he's emerged from the forests of Azeroth to lend a helping talon to some friends in need. For every Cenarion Hatchling purchased between now and July 31, 100% of the $10 USD adoption fee will be donated to the American Red Cross's Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief efforts. This support will enable the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support, and other assistance to victims of this disaster.

To learn more about the Pet Store, please visit the Pet Store FAQ.

May 2, 2011 New Maps and Mods Tutorial: Missile Movers
We've just expanded the StarCraft II Maps and Mods page with the Missile Movers tutorial, located here. The missile mover system allows the map maker to control motion in dramatic and entertaining ways. While typically used to configure missile-based attacks, the underlying motion defined by the missile mover system can be used to drive a reaper’s body when it jumps or a spine crawler’s tentacle when it attacks. Add this tutorial to your toolbox and get more out of your custom map creations.
