Players can be happy now because there is a good news from the official site that diablo iii reaper of souls friends & family beta test is now underway. This time is different from past. Blizzard planned to invite valued media contacts, key members of the Blizzard community and the most active 3000 d3 players from worldwide to join this beta. That's really a pioneering behavior.
Participants need not to sign NDA and they are allowed to share what they experienced in the beta. But all they see are part of the expansion and many contents have the chance to be changed before the final release.
If you’re disappointed that you didn’t get an invite to the Reaper of Souls Friends and Family beta, don’t fret. Closed beta for Reaper of Souls is expected by the end of the year. Invitations to the closed beta however will be extremely limited since all content in the expansion will be available, excluding the final boss fight.
So if you’re interested in beta testing Reaper of Souls, make sure you’ve opted-in with your Battle.net account. Around the same time that closed beta kicks off, Blizzard will be launching the Public Test Region (PTR) for Patch 2.0.1. That patch will include Paragon 2.0, Loot 2.0, the new difficulty system, additions of Clans and Communities in addition to balancing and tuning for all five classes.
