Diablo 3 beta open to everyone with Battle.net account [Up: Possibly closed again]

If you are downloading a non-US client, you have to select "US" as server in the options menu, because the EU server option does not seem to work.

EDIT: Already posted. ^^

Well I'll give this a shot. I've never played a Diablo game before, but I'd really like to try. I think it's something I could get really sucked into, which could be good or bad...

It works from europe!

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.

I am going to be that guy.

For all you at work who arn't getting in on this, don't worry. It's awesome as fuck, but may 15th is soon. The beta will just leave you wanting more and more, IMO it's better to just wait. I played the beta so much, and for some weird reason it makes waiting for release even harder.

Thank god for Path of Exile in the mean time that is all I can say.

I'll give it a shot, mostly to see if I can run the game. Hope it stays up for long enough for me to get home in twenty-five minutes.
Bar the entire servers being overloaded, I'm sure the links will stay up that long. Heck, this may even be intentional. You never know with Blizzard. :p

Oh wow, surely they didn't intend this. Knowing my luck they'll fix it the moment I get it downloaded.
Yeah, Jay Wilson confirmed at Gamescom 2011 that the beta will only be a closed one; all players will need a beta key and an invitation to participate.

I never liked the Diablo games but this is a good chance to test if that changed with DIII thanks for the heads up! I will just make a new Battle.net account in case this should be a bug as I don't want my WoW getting banned if Blizzard decides to throw a fit.

This is exactly what I'm afraid of.

So after logging into D3 Beta, I don't see the beta under my account on Battle.net. It still only says "Pre-purchase Diablo 3 now" and nothing else under it. This may be a bug after all.

Isn't the Beta content only half of Act 1? Not sure if it's worth the effort when the full game is out in less than a month.



I guess maybe they made it a fully open beta to give people a demo?
