Player Attack has word that Blizzard has quietly launched local Battle.net servers for Diablo III in advance of next week's launch of the Reaper of Souls expansion for the action/RPG sequel. They say that these appear to be hosted in Sydney, and gamers in Australia and New Zealand can now play the game with sub-100ms pings, though apparently authentication and other administrative functions are still being handed off to other regions for the moment. On a related note, Battle.net now offers a new trailer showing off gameplay for various classes in the expansion, saying: "Watch this official gameplay trailer to discover what new challenges and rewards await your heroes in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls."
