Diablo III May 15th

Blizzard announces a May 15th release date for Diablo III, saying this is when the action/RPG sequel will be available at retail in many territories, and digitally in others. They have kicked off presales of the game on this page, offering the game in either form, as well as in a USD $99.99 alabaster-white retail Collector's Edition. They also offer a reminder that a free copy of the game is to be had for those who sign up for a World of Warcraft annual pass. Here's word:

In Diablo III, players take on the role of one of five heroic characters -- barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter -- and engage in pulse-pounding combat with endless legions of evil. As they undertake an epic quest to rid Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells, players will explore diverse and perilous settings, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power, and meet key characters who’ll join them in battle or aid them in other ways.

Diablo III was built from the ground up to leverage the full functionality of the Battle.net platform, which delivers powerful matchmaking and communication tools, allowing adventurers to seamlessly join forces for exciting cooperative play. Battle.net also provides a secure infrastructure for the Diablo III auction house, a feature-rich marketplace that Sanctuary’s heroes can use to trade their hard-earned treasures. Players will be able to buy and sell weapons, armor, and other valuable items in the auction house in exchange for in-game gold. Players will also have the option to receive real-world currency for auction house sales, which they can apply to their Battle.net Balance for the purchase of a variety of digital products through Battle.net, including Diablo III auction house items, or cash out through a third-party payment service such as PayPal™ in most regions. Further details related to the auction house will be announced in the coming weeks.

If that cut off wasn't there you'd have long running "arguments" appearing there on the front page.

Thank god for that then...

Semi-random, silly question: With 200+ posts, as recent as today, why isn't this topic listed under the "Popular Threads" on the left of the site?

There's probably some cut off threshold based on the original posting date. This post is over 2 months old so it doesn't appear. If that cut off wasn't there you'd have long running "arguments" appearing there on the front page.

I had one of my PC's with a corrupt set of install files so I had to redownload... it's pulling down strong at 3 mbs and almost finished. BTW... you can install now... just can't play.
Actually the servers had opened when I made that post, as I'm in the UK.

Overloaded servers. Predictable. This is what happens when you try to make singleplayer gamers login to an online system.

Fuck, who am I kidding?

I'm gonna go out and buy two copies of this bad boy on release day. Been watching some good Youtube gameplay vids, and it's definitely my cup of tea. Just hope the online requirement doesn't make the experience suck with lag and/or getting dissed.

Why two? I've read someone else say the same!
Hey Eldaron, extra copies for extra players... I have two kids at home that are going to MP with me through the game for the first time through (step-son 18 years old and my little one who turns 5 on the 15th... LOL he thinks they are releasing D3 specifically for him). All three of us played the open beta and had a blast. my 5 year old actually played through the whole thing on his own (he's a bit of a computer genius though).

Yup. You're just another victim to an addiction. No matter how bad it gets, you're still going to do it--and Blizzard knows this.

Sad.

Most of us find deqers posts sad.

Yes, it's so sad when someone finds his entertainment entertaining instead of being able to generate enough angst to ensure a heart attack at an early age.

Not the only one. I'm against the always-on system, and don't plan on buying it at present, but figured I'd try and get in the beta and give them a chance to change my mind... But alas, no such luck.
