Diablo II Demo... For PC
9:57 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Amidst all the confusion surrounding hacked Realm servers and destroyed characters, a different story relating to Diablo II arose over the weekend. In a news post yesterday, VoodooExtreme reported that a demo version of the game, once considered impossible due to the huge size of the game's data files, will be bundled on an upcoming issue of the German gaming magazine GameStar. They also note the full version of Diablo (the original) is being included on the current magazine's included CD.


It is reported that the demo would be much like the 100,000 person stress-test Blizzard had before Diablo II's release. It was essentially half of the first Act, with only the Barbarian character available. Unfortunately, this demo seems to be PC only at this time, so Mac users wanting a glimpse of this RPG may be shut out for now. Of course, you could always read our Diablo II review...
