The End of Days approachesâ€¦. 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.
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 youâ€™ll be ready to play when the game launches.

*When you pre-purchase Diablo III, you will be able to download an encrypted version of the game that will be unlocked upon release on May 15.
CAN'T WAIT! I should have a few days of vacation time saved up by launch hahahahahaha, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Blizzard is going to release D3 on Q2 as expected. This could mean that they will stick to the Q3 release of SC2:HotS and MoP.
good bye wow...^^
Oh dear god I can't wait! Finally! :D
Heh I finally got into the beta today and while I sit here waiting for the slow client download I was reading up on different speculations of the release date, just to get some kind of an idea about how much beta time I might actually be having. Then a quick refresh of Wowhead General and KABOOM there's the official info =Pedit: Just noticed that they enabled the Full Game Client download on battle.net already.
WOOT! 4 days before my birthday, and 2 weeks before my surgery. I know what I'll be doing while I'm off work recovering o:
OMGOMGOMG /takes the 15th, 16th and 17th off for "person reasons"I can't wait!
I cant wait :D
That sounded like a long time from now at first, but when you think about it, that's only two months. I don't remember how long I've had my CE pre-ordered, but I can't waiiiiiiiit to get it.
I just signed up for the WoW Annual Pass.. and did the download for Diablo III.. then when it FINALLY got to the loading screen after almost 8gigs of download there was an "install" button but when I clicked it.. it said the game isnt out yet... but today is the 15th.. According to you guys we can play.. So did I misunderstand or am I doing something wrong..?
45 quid for a digi version....no thanks
Also, Ratchet & Clank HD collection on PS3 right around the same time. I guess I know when I'm taking my annual 1 week staycation.
