Today, at 12pm Pacific Time, Blizzard opened Diablo III servers to all who are interested in partaking in this weekend’s open beta test ahead of the game’s May 15th release. As stated above, anyone will be able to enjoy the catacombs of Diablo III for free from now until the end of the weekend (Monday at 10:00am, Pacific Time).
We’re pleased to announce the Diablo III open beta weekend, which offers open access to all players with a valid Battle.net account! Beginning this Friday everyone is invited to log in and help us put the game and servers through their paces in this three day stress test as we march toward the game’s release on May 15. You can begin downloading the Diablo III client right now!
For more details on how to register to participate in the open beta weekend, visit Blizzard’s official announcement page.
There’s a good chance that this will be the only opportunity for customers to fully try Diablo III prior to its $59.99 release on May 15th. Stay tuned for more coverage on Diablo III and other popular video games.
