Evil Is Back — Diablo III Gets A May 15th Release Date
Blizzard Entertainment is finally making big moves regarding their two major titles releasing this year — Diablo III and World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. With the World of Warcraft Press Tour starting on March 19th, which will release bounds of new information for the next expansion to the MMORPG phenomenon, getting Diablo III news within the same week’s time is quite the surprise! So when Blizzard decided to drop the bombshell on all of their fans by finally announcing the release date for our third dance with the Lord of Terror himself, one can expect it will be some big news.
In today’s press release, Blizzard states that those interested in being prepared to fend off the terrors of the Burning Hells on the exact minute of release time can pre-purchase and download Diablo III straight from their account on battle.net! You will actually download a full version of the game that is encrypted to be unlocked and patched on it’s release!
If you happen to be a World of Warcraft player you can also get Diablo III for free by participating in their Annual Pass Promotion. 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. This promotion does end on May 1st, so if you’re interested in the deal, you have a little more than a month to take in all the upcoming Mists of Pandaria information with which to decide.
