Finally Emerging From The Depths Of Hell
This bit of news has been a long time coming, but we’re finally at the point where pigs are flying over a frozen hell. This afternoon developers Blizzard Entertainment released details regarding the digital pre-orders of the long-awaited hack-and-slash, dungeon-crawling epic Diablo 3. It was also confirmed that we will finally be getting our hands on the game in two months time, on May 15th.
Pre-orders had previously only been available to those that had signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass, but now everyone can prepare to get in on the action, although the digital version will set you back €59.99 if you buy directly from Battle.net. The Collector’s Edition, which was announced at Blizzcon 2011, will also be available for those who want a rather bountiful selection of extras, but it will only be purchasable at retail and online stores for €89.99.
Despite the recent news and worry that last minute tweaks to the game would upset the focus of the game, Diablo 3 continues to be one of the most anticipated games of the year. It has been revealed that 1 million players have already paid for the WoW Annual Pass, meaning the game has been selling well even ahead of today’s announcement. In short, we will finally know in May if the long wait for one of PC gaming’s most iconic series has been worth it.
