Not Playing Diablo 3 Yet? Try The Free Starter Edition
Up till recently, there was no option to try Diablo 3 in the form of a demo or something similar. Only new accounts for digital copies had to experience the Starter Edition of the game until their purchase was validated.
Blizzard spent some time and decided to let everyone try Diablo by making the Standard Edition available to anyone who wishes to get a glimpse at the game. There are already 10 million players and Blizz seems to try and increase the player base.
The Free Starter Edition is the same as it was before. All players will be limited to level 13 and can only progress till the Skeleton King just like in the beta version of the game. Multiplayer games for the free version of Diablo 3 will have limitations and the players will only be able to join games of other users of the Standard Edition. Last but not least, the players will not be able to use the Auction House or the Real Money Auction House.
To get a free Diablo 3 pass, players need only to create a battle.net accounts if they do not have one. If they already have an account, they will need to sign up for the Starter Edition from the “Your Game Accounts” section. If they decided to upgrade to the full version of the game, the progress will carry over and the restrictions will be removed.
The announcement for this Starter Edition was also published on the official Facebook page. Blizzard implemented starter editions for its other titles and Diablo 3 was the last to follow the trend. World of Warcraft and Starcraft II had multiple types of trial including gameplay time restrictions. As of now, all starter editions have no time limitations but have multiple limitations, just like with any trial.
