Beta Test For Diablo III Is Now Open

Blizzard have announced that the Beta test for their hugely anticipated dungeon crawler title, Diablo III is now open for the lucky few who have been selected.

The Diablo III beta will give you access to all five of the classes which are the Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Witch Doctor, Monk and Wizard to try out along with a limited number of skills and will be able to experience the games starting zones up until the first boss, the Skeleton king.

To participate in the beta you must first create a Battle.net account if you dont already have one and choose to opt in from there. You can find full instructions on how to do this on Blizzards Diablo III site HERE.

Please remember that opting in doesn't guarantee you access to the beta but keep checking your Battle.net account to see if you have gotten lucky.

If you have already opted in, Blizzard are warning people to be very careful of phishing scams sent via email and remind people to not click on any suspicious links. If you are sent a key by email, go directly to your Battle.net account and insert the key there rather than clicking on a link in an email as this can lead to account theft.

Best of luck to all of you, if you are already on the beta why not post below with your thoughts and feelings for what you have seen so far.

Gah hugely jealous of you Monger! I was looking at the demon hunter myself, hopefully will get accepted into the next stage of the beta invites *keeps fingers crossed*
Nice!!! I really like the Wizard and those armors! but demon hunter looks more powerful, might create another demon hunter character. ^ ^

How did I miss this. Is it still open beta?

It never was open beta, by invite only. There are select places doing beta key giveaways but at the moment it's pretty closed off to joe bloggs. Just have to wait and see if more people get in.

I've got links to Blizzard through friends etc to be able to get a key, but I'm not the biggest Diablo fan so haven't chased it up. However, just to make Kaostic jealous, I might

I did that with the BF3 Alpha :P. Got in, Not a huge fan of BF (don't own BF2) played it a few times, got bored.

It wouldn't make me jealous - I just would refuse to talk to you.
