The End of Days approaches…. Diablo III will be unleashed from the Burning Hells on May 15, 2012, and you can be ready to play the minute the servers go live by pre-purchasing the game digitally on Battle.net today.
Beginning May 15, players around the world will be able to return to Tristram to discover the dark secrets of a fallen star and begin their quest to save Sanctuary from the impending demonic invasion. To secure your place as a barbarian, monk, demon hunter, witch doctor, or wizard right now, simply log in to your Battle.net account, and then purchase and download* Diablo III, and you’ll be ready to play when the game launches.
World of Warcraft players interested in getting Diablo III for free can still get in on the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, but the promotion will be ending at 12:01 a.m. PDT on May 1, 2012. When you sign up for the Annual Pass and make a 1-year commitment to World of Warcraft, you’ll receive a free digital copy of Diablo III, an exclusive World of Warcraft in-game mount (Tyrael’s Charger), as well as access to the upcoming World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta test. Learn more at the Annual Pass signup page.
For more details on the May 15 release of Diablo III, be sure to hit the official press release, or head to our new Diablo III game page to learn more about the game and pre-purchase your digital copy.
*When you pre-purchase Diablo III, you will be able to download an encrypted version of the game that will be unlocked upon release on May 15.
On my birthday 19 years old :)
Lets hope it's worth the wait; I don't even want to talk about what this means for MoP.
They didn't do Blizzcon because they want to get D3, MoP and Heart of the Swarm out this year.....also, other then the games being released, they wouldn't have much to say at the event anyways.
I downloaded the client this afternoon. Of course I can't even play the dang thing yet, but it really makes me feel like I made the right choice when I was agonizing over the Annual Pass so many months ago. I never seriously played Diablo II, but I did get the Torchlight bug pretty badly last year. I'm probably going to enjoy the heck out of Diablo III, so much so that when Mists rolls around, my reaction won't be 'THANK YOU! So glad you're here!' but 'YOU'VE LAUNCHED TOO SOON! What is the meaning of this...'
Well it is perfect for me. I didn't get the annual pass, and my game time runs out at around 11P.M. on May14th. Guess that is when I will take a break from WoW.
I'm so hyped for this, it's not even funny.
Eventually ! Great ---can not wait anymore .... !
the same day as my birthday , lol :D
Need some help here..downloaded the digital game and it is saying video card not supported! Computer is less than a year old, plays WOW perfectly. Comments I have read state D3 not a demanding game on your video, I really am not going to spend $100 or $200 for a new video card, any suggestions?
Are your drivers up to date? That's the one thing I hear to do first before trying it.
