Diablo III closed beta is underway now!

0

If you're in the mood for early access to some of 2011's hottest games, then today's your lucky day; not only was the Battlefield 3 beta announced for September 29th, but Blizzard has revealed that the Diablo III closed beta is available, right now! With Diablo III still to be confirmed for release in 2011, this could be the closest players get to Blizzard's long-awaited sequel.

A statement released by the developer today says, players will be able to go through half of the first act of the game as any of the five announced classes. The act concludes with a battle against the Skull King, who I presume is the King of the little known Skull region. Or the King of skeletons, it's not really clear. The beta is available to play either by yourself or with online co-op, so it's time to start eying up your Battle.net friends list to see who you want as your teammate. 

Unfortunately, there's no update on a firm release date in the statement and it's not clear if the controversial auction house will be accessible to players in the beta, but this is still exciting news. Any members of the lovely Destructoid community got a beta invite? Already started playing? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
