Go check your email right now and see if you have been invited! I just checked and I… was not invited. Yet? Who knows. This is one of the most anticipated games of the last decade just like StarCraft and it’s coming so close to reality. Don’t worry just yet if you haven’t received a beta key because Blizzard is rolling everything out in phases starting today. Blizzard also said that they will have contests giving away beta keys.
The beta is not confidential so if we get our hands on one we will definitely
rub it in let you know how it is with screen shots and videos. But you want to know how long the beta will last? Blizzard hasn’t said, best guest is a couple of months. What do you get to do in the beta? Well, play as all the character classes, try out the auction house with gold only (not IRL money yet).
UPDATE: Blizzard sent us a beta key and Rob is going to review it so stay tuned!
UPDATE 2: Rob just posted 15 minutes of gameplay!
Words of advice passed on from Blizzard; “We’d like to remind those looking forward to an invite to be wary of phishing attempts. If you believe you’ve received an invite to the Diablo III beta test, it’s best to refrain from clicking on any links in the email, and instead log in to your Battle.net account to see if a Diablo III beta game account was granted.”
If you don’t have a beta key then maybe the beta gameplay screen shots we have below will tide you over.
