Diablo 3 Closed Beta is Live!
At long last, the Diablo 3 closed beta is officially live for everyone. Two weeks ago, the “friends & family” beta began, and now members of the public at have a chance to win the beta lottery and try out the highly-anticipated sequel to the action RPG that molded the genre.
Check your email and log in to your Battle.net account to see if you’re one of the lucky few selected for testing. If you’re not, all hope is not lost; “waves” of beta keys will be issued over time, and Blizzard plans on distributing keys through promotions and giveaways.
Do be wary of phishing scams. A friend of mine received an email from “Blizzard,” informing him that he got into the beta — he simply had to provide his account name and password. Blizzard will never ask for you password, so don’t fall prey to con artists.
