Diablo III Release Date Set for May 15th

Diablo III, the much-anticipated sequel to one of Blizzard's main franchises, now officially has a release date. According to Blizzard's website, the horror game will be go live on May 15th.

It is available for pre-order, and eventually pre-download, from Blizzard's Battle.net service. Users will download the game before it actually is released, and the game will be enabled at midnight on the 15th. Reports OS X Daily:
Blizzard Entertainment has had the game in development seemingly forever (2001!), but it appears the long wait has been worth it. Gameplay is a mixture of dungeon crawling and hack-and-slash with RPG elements, there are five different character classes each with their own skillset, and there’s also a multiplayer PvP mode.

Diablo III is $59.99 and can be pre-ordered directly from Blizzard or any number of other retailers.

Diablo is totally not a horror game.

It's an action rpg.

I suppose I'm lucky. My wife is also eagerly waiting for this game to come out. The only problem will be who gets to play the game when we have it.


... order two games and play together?

Blizzard have always thought on us when developing games.
There hasn't been any different in release date for the mac and the pc since they released SC (pc 1998, mac 1999), the only thing you might happen to see is that the pc beta are up a little bit before.
Blizzard are one of the best gaming companies, and i think part of the popularity they have are because they don't think pc are more for gaming then a mac is.

There was a time when I would have been excited beyond belief by this. Now? "Meh."


I kinda feel the same way. they took to long to release it. I will end up getting it like everyone else, but for the most part the excitement has worn thin and pretty much gone. its like they hype you and hype you and hype you and like a year and a half later they are still trying to hype you and are like are you hyped are you hyped. ahh, no.

Supported Graphics Card List (http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/video-card-support-for-diablo-iii) ordered by performance.

320m is not listed; however, Intel's HD Graphics 3000 is an equivalent is supported as Low Performance.


I was in the Beta invite and had it installed on my Macbook Pro 13" Mid 2010, it has the Geforce 320M, with 8gb of ram, Diablo 3 ran very well, I had adjusted the detail down, ground clutter, along with the physics but it ran very well I thought and the laptop didn't get very hot at all, which I was surprised) Running on the laptop screen (1280x800)
