After days of speculation that the Diablo 3 Friends and Family Beta was underway, Blizzard confirms it is up and running.
In a post on the official Diablo 3 forum sin the early hours of this morning, Blizzard CM Bashiok that the Friends and Family beta test was now live and that the closed public test will also be kicking off soon.
The testers will not be under any NDA so we can expect a flood of videos, screenshot and information in the next 24 hours.
“FYI, we’re getting very close to starting the closed public beta test for Diablo III. You might start seeing some new reports about the beta client as we’ve begun limited external testing with employees and their families, and there is no non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for that. We look forward to sharing more info about the beta test in the near future. Stay tuned.
If you have a beta license, you are free to show, share, or talk about any portion of the beta content to which you have access, as this beta test is not confidential.”
