Blizzard Announces 'Diablo 3' Fans Will Taste Necromancer Via Playable Beta, But Will Be Limited To Select Players

Close

Blizzard has some big news for "Diablo 3" fans. Blizzard's hack and slash game are set to receive a brand new piece of DLC this year. Blizzard this week announced that the much-awaited "Rise of the Necromancer" is just right in the corner, but it will arrive in closed beta form.

The Irvine-based game studio has already announced to the gaming world that "Diablo 3" players will soon get their hands with the much-talked "Rise of the Necromancer," via a closed beta test. The playable beta will allow Diablo fans to test patches before they are released to the wild. Content in the upcoming closed beta test may change and does not represent the final version of the game, Blizzard added.

However, there are some reports suggesting that the "Rise of the Necromancer" beta may be limited to select Diablo players, or invite-only. "Diablo 3" fans will be receiving invites worldwide to the new closed beta test, the Nichegamer reported. Further details weren't confirmed yet by Blizzard, so fans will need to wait for a couple of days for the next big announcement.

Joining will be easy, "Diablo 3" on players will only need to go to their Account Management page, then to the Beta profile Settings page. In the Setting page, players need to tick the checkbox next to Diablo in order to be considered for beta testing opportunities, the Attack of the Fanboy reported.

However, there one big important thing, Diablo fans will need to have an active "Diablo 3" key attached to a BNet account, according to Blizzard. When players get invited, they will receive an email with instruction on how to proceed and get started. Blizzard advised players to get patient because the studio will only be choosing a select number of beta players to test the new "Diablo 3" DLC. Additionally, Blizzard may implement some kind of a new mechanic to the beta version.

As for the upcoming "Diablo 3" DLC, Blizzard said the expansion pack will come along with the much-talked Necromancer, two stash tabs (on PC), an in-game pet and more. Blizzard is said to be finalizing the works on Necromancer and other parts of Patch 2.6.0. "Diablo 3" Rise of the Necromancer is expected to arrive in the second half of this year.
