For months gamers have been desperate to get their hands on a Diablo 3 Beta key and the majority have found it pretty hard to get their hands on one. There is some good news this morning however.
Blizzard has just announced that this weekend Diablo 3 will be going open Beta and you can play from Friday 12:01 p.m. PDT (noon), until Monday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.
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! From Friday, April 20 at 12:01 p.m. PDT (noon), until Monday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT you’ll be able to log in, team up with friends, and play each of the five heroic classes to level 13 as you fight to save the world from the impending demonic invasion.
As we head to release on 15 May, and before Blizzard shut down the Beta on 1 May, this looks like one final big hardware stress test. Let’s hope the server can handle it.
