Diablo III: Global Play, Auction House, Wizard Trailer

In the days leading up to the May 15 release of Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo III, the company has been releasing a variety of information about the action RPG sequel. This time Blizzard has unveiled a new trailer showcasing the Wizard class, information about Diablo III's auction house, and details about usiing Global Play to play on servers in other regions.

Wizard Class:

Finally, our in-depth look at each of the five heroes of Diablo III comes to a brilliant conclusion with the wizard. As we approach the worldwide release of Diablo III on May 15, we've featured every hero on our Diablo III launch site, and this week, you can take in a heap of information about these veritable thunderstorms of lethal power.

    Rumors from Caldeum detail the events surrounding a certain brash student of the sorcerous arts—a promising, even brilliant, pupil, but one whose unbridled ambitions have led to violence and disorder in the respected schools of that august city. This young woman was trained by some of the most skilled mages in the world, but rather than follow their guidance, she chose to display an uncooperative spirit, constantly pushing past their restrictions in pursuit of knowledge that they claimed she was not prepared for.

Auction House:

The gold-based auction house opens its doors worldwide on May 15 with the launch of Diablo III, and we plan to bring the real-money auction house online approximately one week after that. This is a new service that includes lots of complex elements, so we are going to take a little extra time to ensure the game gets off to a good start before we flip the switch and open the real-money auction house for business.

Global Play:

Diablo III's global game servers are grouped into three distinct game regions:

  • The Americas - For players in the US, Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia.
  • Europe - For players in the European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, and Middle Eastern countries such as Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
  • Asia - For players in South Korea and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.
In general, players will create characters and play in their "home" region, which is determined by where they live (specifically, the country of residence registered to their Battle.net account). Global Play gives players the ability to switch to any of the other game regions via the in-game options menu, either before or after they log in to the game.
