Diablo III, the latest in the classic Diablo computer game series, is coming to your PC on May 15, 2012 -- about 12 years after the last game in the series, Diablo II. The original Diablo was launched at the tail-end of 1996.
In the announcement for Diablo III, Blizzard Entertainment says that the game can be pre-purchased online today, digitally, through Battle.net. Players who have a World of Warcraft annual pass can get Diablo III for free through May 1.
Diablo III will continue the swords and sorcery fun of the prior games, as players choose between becoming a barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter to contend with the legions of hell.
Diablo III will be available for both Windows and Macintosh systems at a suggested price of $59.99; a special Collector's Edition will be available for a suggested retail price of $99.99, and include several extras: the full game on DVD-ROM, a behind-the-scenes Blu-ray/DVD two-disc set, the Diablo III soundtrack CD, a 208-page Art of Diablo III book, and a 4 GB USB soulstone that includes full versions of Diablo II and expansion Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, as well as as exclusive in-game content for Diablo III, World of Warcraft, and StarCraft II.
