Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games. Diablo 1 had four dungeon types with quite different maps for each area, though all were just big squares with different arrangements of the pieces within them. (The Hellfire […]

Diablo III Launch Events Across the WorldPosted 25 Apr 2012 by
Blizzard have announced the Launch Events they will attend on May 14th for all regions. If you happen to live in any of those areas we suggest you attend, as always they have tons of cool giveaways, signing of the games and other activities.
Diablo III Launch Events
Whether you’re attending a launch event, grabbing the game at a local store, or waiting patiently at home for your digital version to unlock, you’ll want to be ready to jump in right when the servers open. For the European region, the game servers will go live at 00:01 CEST on May 15. As a reminder to our Russian players, the Russian-language version of the game will be available digitally and at retail starting June 7.
Don’t forget to create your BattleTag — it’s important to do so now if you haven’t already, as it’s REQUIRED TO PLAY DIABLO III. Also note that if you’d like to receive a digital copy of Diablo III free, there are still a few days left to sign up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass.
We hope to see you at one of our Diablo III launch events, and we look forward to seeing you in-game on May 15!
We finally have it folks, the times when you can start your adventure in Sanctuary. After some updates it looks like we now have the final times for the server launches in Europe and NA regions.
Europe region, servers go live at midnight, 00:01 CEST, May 15. (CEST is +2 GMT, so 10pm May 14th in the UK.)
Americas region, servers go live at midnight, 12:01 a.m. PDT, May 15. (includes Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia). (PDT is -800 GMT, so this is 10 hours after the European Servers go live. OZ and NZ are +10-12 GMT.)
Update: Bashiok got a question on Twitter if those with US digital pre-order could start to play on EU servers when they open up. But no they have to wait for the US servers to open up for their game to install, so no sneak peak play on the EU servers for US digital-copy pre-orderers.
