Diablo 3 official release date!

5/15/12.  IMO it’s a bit of a bizarre way to announce their game via their blog when they’ve passed up so many big name opportunities to do so in the recent past, but there it is all the same.  You can pre-order now and download an “encrypted” version of the game that will let you play it as soon as 5/15 hits or you can always opt to buy a year of WoW as well.

I’ll be releasing Beta playthroughs shortly and walking you through the most recent character and game designs in addition to sharing my thoughts and ideas about where the game has come from and where it seems to be going.

  1. Hey DRJ did you close your teamspeak server? I was looking forward to playing ME3 with you but I can’t get into the TS server

  2. I’m honestly really worried about d3 not living up to the legacy of d2. I never got invited to the beta, but the overall gameplay seems very slow even for the early levels. Not having any pvp whatsoever on release also sucks. There’s only so much mfing you can do before you want to pull your hair out. Instead of resorting to bgs they should have just made the option to pk a checklist when you create a game so all the little girls don’t get mad. I also don’t like the idea of the tdm bgs and much preferred the arena style because even though the devs don’t want the game to be competitive at all, if you’re releasing a pvp mode then wtf do you expect people to be? Oh well, I mean I’m still going to get the game, I’m just not going to be all that shocked if it doesn’t live up to (my) expectations.

    The beta has been changing quite a bit and I can’t stress enough how the game has the potential to be immensely different at end game. That said, they’re releasing yet another new patch this evening and wiping characters once again (I’ve maxed them all out twice now), so hopefully I can bring you some solid D3 info shortly.

    Looking forward to the content. What are your thoughts on the lack of being able to go hostile in a standard game. I know their “reasoning” is that griefing was I guess too prevalent in their eyes ( which is utter crap imo because throughout my entire d2 lifespan I have been griefed maybe 3 times ). Do you feel that bgs will be an adequate substitute?
