Diablo III is Here! Breathe Easy My Friends!
The day is finally upon us and Diablo III is now out much to the delight of gamers old and new. Parties erupted across the world as midnight struck in places such as Seoul, Taipei, Irvine, and London as cosplayers roamed the streets, developers signed game copies, green screen photo ops took place, and much more.
However most chose to simple countdown till launch with their digital copy in hand and Battle Tags ready. They knew the horrors they would soon face. No I don’t mean demons but queue times and day 1 jitters! Yet they fought on bravely with energy drinks and coffee in hand to be among the first to witness this momentous title in its completion. Overall more than 2 million preorders were made, setting a new Blizzard record. And they know a thing or two about major launches.
“This launch is a culmination of many years of hard work by our development team, and many years of passionate, dedicated support from gamers around the world,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re grateful for the enthusiasm of our players, and for the help of our beta testers in getting the game ready for release. Now that Diablo III is live, we hope everyone’s ready to have a hellishly good time slaying demons and collecting loot in Sanctuary.”
