Blizzard has announced that Diablo III will be unleashed on the world on May 15, 2012. World of Warcraft players can still score D3 for free by purchasing the annual pass for WoW. The deal will end on release day.
Beginning May 15, players around the world will be able to return to Tristram to discover the dark secrets of a fallen star and begin their quest to save Sanctuary from the impending demonic invasion. To secure your place as a barbarian, monk, demon hunter, witch doctor, or wizard right now, simply log in to your Battle.net account, and then purchase and download* Diablo III, and you’ll be ready to play when the game launches.
