Diablo 3: Open Beta Weekend

Being the resident Blizzard guru, I owe it to you all to announce two things: First of all, expect to see regular coverage and editorial content for Diablo 3 once the game goes live! Many of us at Nitrobeard (and hopefully many of you, as well) will be picking up Diablo 3 at launch, in order to see if the third game in the acclaimed series lives up to the hype.

The second bit of news, is that you can play Diablo 3 right now. From April 20th to April 23rd, you can participate in the free, open beta for Diablo 3! Head on over to the official site for information, download links, and some pretty cool Diablo-themed stuff like wallpapers, lore, and of course, the official forums. Hopefully this won't be the only open-beta weekend, so keep your eye here, or the official Diablo 3 website, for news of any furher awesomeness!

For the record, the beta's not very long, but it is very awesome. Also, once you get your Battle.net account set up and active (for free!), be sure to add 'KamiDaHobo#1820' to your friends list! You can then see when I play all sorts of Blizzard games, like Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, or World of Warcraft! Plus, killing the devil is always more fun with friends!
