I’m sure you’re all ready for the big Diablo III day, waiting go line-up for the midnight launch or anxiously hoping your pre-ordered copy will be waiting for you when you get back from work. Or did you call in sick? It’s ok you can tell me, I won’t rat you out, promise
So 12 years since Diablo II, do you remember all of what happened? No I mean precisely, in details? That’s what I thought, well it’s ok, the folks at G4TV got us covered with today’s post: The Story So Far… Everything You Need To Know About Diablo. A very good recap of the events of Diablo, Diablo II and the Lord of Destruction expansion.
Also, for those of you who aren’t sure about the game yet or haven’t played Diablo III’s beta, you will be able to try out the Starter Edition. Now having played the beta already doesn’t mean you can’t play the Starter Edition, it’s just that, you’ll play the very same portion of the game with the same restrictions:
- Act I up to the Skeleton King is available
- Level 13 cap
- Matchmaking available only with other Starter Edition players
- No Real Money Auction House access
Also, you will need a guest pass for the first 30 days following launch, these will ship with copies of the game, much like previous Blizzard releases. No word on how many passes will be included in each box of the game, but I’m betting it will be the usual 2.
