Diablo 3 Official Launching May 15 – Digital Pre-Sales NOW OPEN
Today, I logged in my Battlenet Account to play my favorite game Starcraft 2 as usual and I could not believe in my eyes: Diablo 3 Official Released Date was announced finally!
Jumping up and down, I felt so happy with this incredible news that it took me awhile to keep calm. I called MRMK to scream out loud in happiness. The wait is finally over! I still remember the feeling of waiting patiently for Starcraft 2 and when the game was released, there was no words could describe how happy I felt. I even invited my two close friends MRMK and CAPRIKNIGHT to come over my house to celebrate when I got the disc. It was so much fun!
And now, we are gonna have another adventure with this game: Diablo 3!
Diablo 3 Official Released Date Revealed!
This is the announcement on Diablo 3 Community at Battlenet:
“The End of Days approaches…. Diablo III will be unleashed from the Burning Hells on May 15, 2012, and you can be ready to play the minute the servers go live by pre-purchasing the game digitally on Battle.net today”
I have already pre-purchased Diablo 3 because I can’t wait to get the disc. The purchase process is pretty simple. All I have to do is logging in my account on Battlenet and providing credit card number to purchase. Within a minute, the transaction is done! The cost is 90 USD, which is more expensive than Starcraft 2 (65 USD, as far as I can remember).
“Beginning May 15, players around the world will be able to return to Tristram to discover the dark secrets of a fallen star and begin their quest to save Sanctuary from the impending demonic invasion. To secure your place as a barbarian, monk, demon hunter, witch doctor, or wizard right now, simply log in to your Battle.net account, and then purchase and download Diablo III, and you’ll be ready to play when the game launches.”
As you can see, the benefit of pre-purchasing the digital version of Diablo 3 is you can play the game as soon as the game launches! How can I wait a single day for the disc to deliver at my house, right?
The problem is it will take me a long time to download the digital version from Blizzard Server. The file is huge (7.60 GB)! But this should not be a big deal, I will just leave my PC there to download it overnight.
Diablo 3 – Get it FREE if you are playing WOW
One more thing, if you are playing World of Warcraft, I suggest you sign up for the Annual Pass and make a 1-year commitment, you will be able to get Diablo 3 for FREE with exclusive bonus!
“World of Warcraft players interested in getting Diablo III for free can still get in on the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, but the promotion will be ending at 12:01 a.m. PDT on May 1, 2012. When you sign up for the Annual Pass and make a 1-year commitment to World of Warcraft, you’ll receive a free digital copy of Diablo III, an exclusive World of Warcraft in-game mount (Tyrael’s Charger), as well as access to the upcoming World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta test.”
