So you want to play the Diablo 3 beta?

I have some steps available that will allow you to possibly play the highly anticipated upcoming game from Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo 3.

Lot's of people are eager to get their hands on this game. I don't blame them. It is a very hot title and much overdue. I have spent countless hours collecting runes, soj's, and other elite items on Diablo 2, and ever since the announcement that Diablo 3 was under development, I have been eager to get a piece of the pie.

Diablo 3 Beta Test Steps

If you want to play the beta of Diablo 3, I recommend following these steps as found below:

  1. Log into your Blizzard Entertainment account.
  2. Go to your account settings
  3. Go to beta settings
  4. Make sure that you have Diablo ticked off so that you can receive invites for beta testing
  5. Log out when finished

There's no trick to it guys

I'm sorry, but obviously everyone isn't going to be picked to beta test Diablo 3. It's a fact or life, if not nature in itself. Make sure your system specs are up to date and have the box ticked. That's all I can tell you guys.

Good luck and congratulations if you get picked. From what I hear, open beta is close. Apparently it is in the 'Friends and Family' testing right now. Lucky folks if you ask me. Must be nice to have a parent or sibling that works for Blizzard eh?

Get ready for Diablo 3 in 2012. I know I can't wait.

      Yea, I've been getting a lot of that. Decided to write a hub with the only legit way of getting in the beta.

      Good information! I note there is some spam mail going around relating the the beta testing - the email asks you to send your Blizzard Account details and is obviously trying to steal your account! So be careful!
