How to Apply for Diablo 3 Beta

Possibly one of the most anticipated games of all time, Diablo 3, is set to be released within the next six months and Blizzard is kicking the game into the beta stages now.

What is a Beta

A beta is a test phase. It can be seen as a “demo” of a “demo”. It allows developers to get the game out to specific people in order to receive more feedback on the game. This allows them to pick up bugs and glitches that in-house testers may have missed. It also allows the developer to iron out everything and make it more stable and polished before the final release.

How the Beta works

The Diablo 3 beta works in four stages. The first stage, which has already started, is the Friends and Family stage. This means that all friends and family of Blizzard employees will be given access to the beta first. After this stage is complete, it will go into the Media stage where all gaming magazines and websites will gain access. Once that is complete, it will go to Industry players such as shops and online retailers. After this, it will go into the Beta Opt-In phase which is open to the public.

How to sign up for the Beta

In order to sign up for the Diablo 3 beta, head over to Battle.Net and click on “Create an Account” or alternatively, sign into your already existing Battle.Net account. After creating the account, click on “Account” at the top of the page and then click “Beta Profile Settings” on the right hand side of the page. You then need to run the beta opt-in application found at the bottom of the page with your applicable operating system and update the settings.

Will I get into the Beta?

Nobody is guaranteed a spot into the beta unfortunately. The beta opt-in phase works in a similar way to lotto where a small percentage of the total amount of applicants will gain access to it. Nothing is guaranteed and there is no way to better increase your chances of gaining access to it.

Diablo 3 can be pre-ordered at Incredible Connection. Gaming Inc members and pre-ordering customers who pre-order Diablo 3 get free delivery and ten percent off the final price of the product.
