Diablo 3 Open Beta Weekend (April 21st - 24th)
This was posted 1 year 1 month 29 days ago, and might be an out-dated deal
Not really a bargain, but since the BF3 beta was posted here I figured this could be as well.
Starts 5am AEST Saturday if my calculations are correct and ends 3am Tuesday.
We're pleased to announce the Diablo III open beta weekend, which offers open access to all players with a valid Battle.net account! Beginning this Friday everyone is invited to log in and help us put the game and servers through their paces in this three day stress test as we march toward the game's release on May 15. You can begin downloading the Diablo III client right now!
From Friday, April 20 at 12:01 p.m. PDT (noon), until Monday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT you'll be able to log in, team up with friends, and play each of the five heroic classes to level 13 as you fight to save the world from the impending demonic invasion.
What steps do I need to take?
Log in or create a Battle.net account at http://www.battle.net/ Create your BattleTag™ (https://www.battle.net/account/management/battletag-create.h...), which is required to play Diablo III (What is BattleTag?) Download the game client (https://us.battle.net/account/download/index.xml), install, and play between 12:01 p.m. PDT April 20 and 10:00 a.m. PDT April 23
Be sure to enable ambient occlusion in the Nvidia control panel. It makes the game look a lot better: http://international.download.nvidia.com/geforce-com/interna...
To enable Ambient Occlusion in the beta, open the NVIDIA Control Panel, browse to ‘Manage 3D Settings,’ locate the Diablo III profile in the list, and select one of the Ambient Occlusion quality settings before clicking ‘Apply'.
