UPDATE: Its confirmed that access for non-beta people was an error. Battle.net is down right now and they are fixing it. Almost guaranteed that you won't be able to access it again unless you have a beta account in Battle.net.

CONFIRMED BY FELLOW GAFFERS:

Awesome!!!!

EDIT: Also, as a side note, I do have the annual pass and D3 linked to my account. Not sure if that is a factor.

For people out of europe - change ingame server settings to north america so you can connect to the server. if you choose EU server you will get an 3003 error. Also you should have a battletag already created to login successfully.

Really like the looks of the game now that I've finally seen it in person.

To download the client:

(Note: total download is 7+ GB. choose allow quick play in downloaded preferences of the client. you might be able to play before downloading the whole thing)


Windows:

US: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...enUS-Setup.exe
GB: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...GB%20Setup.exe
FR: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...FR%20Setup.exe
DE: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...DE%20Setup.exe

MAC:

US: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...enUS-Setup.zip
GB: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...0Setup.app.zip
FR: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...0Setup.app.zip
DE: http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuite...0Setup.app.zip

Next Steps:


1- Post in the awesome Diablo III Beta thread!
http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=443339

2- Create your BattleTag and share it in the official Diablo III Beta thread! Thanks MrMister!

some people have tried it and it works, apparently. i already have the beta so i can't try it.

Seems weird something like this would happen last second. A large open beta stress is plausible.

Downloading at ~3MB/s (university internet). I hope this works.

EDIT:
So if I get in before the bug is fixed, I can keep playing even after it is fixed?

Click as soon as it lets you play. The rest will download in the background while you play. I'm in beta so I can't test it but I hope it's true and you guys get to try it out
