diablo3logoDiablo 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 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?
