Diablo III – World Launch Parties!

Diablo III – World Launch Parties!
 

We have waited and waited for this seriously awesome title and at last we get to see, feel and play the mighty Diablo III in just a few weeks, officially May 15th. To celebrate this Blizzard are throwing on a few little parties around the globe at various retail outlets in the late hours of May 14th in the USA, UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Poland, South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, and Taiwan. Players should be able to go to their bigger outlets (GameStop, HMV, ect.) to grab a copy of Diablo III and see some of the festivities that may be laid on depending on where you live – you should also check with your local game supplier if they will be open as many smaller shops are also joining this unholy legion.

You can look here to see where is taking place in the debauchery and if it is near you.

For those of us in the UK there will be one of the biggest official launch parties at HMV on Oxford Street from around 10pm, May 14th. Prospective players will be able to select from the following and buy:

  • Exclusive aesthetic artifacts for Diablo III, as well as an exclusive World of Warcraft® in-game fetish shaman pet and exclusive StarCraft® II Battle.net® portraits and army decal
  • A behind-the-scenes Blu-ray/DVD two-disc set with over an hour of interviews detailing how the world of Sanctuary came together
  • The Art of Diablo III, a 208-page art book that catalogues numerous pieces of Diablo III art, from early concepts to final 3D renderings
  • The official Diablo III soundtrack CD, containing 24 original pieces from the game
  • A 4GB USB soulstone, preloaded with full versions of Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction®, and corresponding Diablo skull base

‘Festivities will start at 22.00 BST on the 14th of May. Gamers in attendance will enjoy an epic evening of entertainment before Diablo III goes on sale at 23.00 BST, including a variety of giveaways and multiple contests with exclusive prizes from our partners. In addition, members of the Diablo III development team will be on site at each of the official events to meet with players and sign their copies of the game’.

USA details are sketchy so far with only one confirmed location taking part in Irvine, California but no doubt New York, L.A. and many other large city locations will emerge as time goes on.

I image that similar events will be happening in many major cities around the world so it would be worth while checking, especially in Paris, Rome and other popular locations. We know that GameStop in Dublin (Henry St)  and Cork (Patrick St) are taking part in Ireland. All members of the public are welcome to all events but be warned, much like Hell itself there will be large Que’s to contend with and only so many Diablo III copies for sale – so shame the Devil and get there early!
