Blizzcon attendees were given some undeniably exciting news: from amongst them, 1,000 would be chosen to receive Beta Keys to Diablo 3. Those of you like me who've been waiting to hear that news for years and years (and years,) oh my goodness the excitement burns in the heart. Diablo 2 was (and yes, still is) played by thousands, being one of the games to pave the way for such games as World of Warcraft, a game that's estimated to hold over 60% of the market share for MMORPG games in the world.
The news of this excellent pre-cursor to the actual release of the game came amidst Tenacious D performing the closing act at BlizzCon 2010. Also released during the convention was the final character class: the Deamon Hunter. Sassy! Powerful! Wonderful!
