Late Blizzard artist Kevin Kanai Griffith honored in special Diablo III cow level


Accessible during his birth month

Blizzard is doing a heroic job of honoring the late Kevin Kanai Griffith, a talented character artist that helped develop Diablo III -- he has his own bonus cow level named after him. Simply find the throne in the Ruins of Sescheron (one of the game's brand new zones) and you're good to go.

Kevin actually passed away in 2014, and the level was implemented in patch 2.4.0, but players will only be able to access it in March, which is Kevin's birth month. Fun fact: the Kanai Cube is actually named after him.

You can see the tribute in the video below, compliments of MadTom.
