The F&F Beta Testing Has Begun!
Official Blizzard Quote:
FYI, we’re getting very close to starting the closed public beta test for Diablo III. You might start seeing some new reports about the beta client as we’ve begun limited external testing with employees and their families, and there is no non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for that. We look forward to sharing more info about the beta test in the near future. Stay tuned.
If you have a beta license, you are free to show, share, or talk about any portion of the beta content to which you have access, as this beta test is not confidential.
That's right, it's official. The Friends and Family Beta testing has begun! Also note that there is no NDA (No Disclosure Agreement) bound to any F&F Beta participants. This means any content they encounter can be shared openly. This would explain all of the recent leaks
over the past day or so. No one knows how long the F&F phase will last, but one thing is for certain, "very close" sounds much better than "Soon™".
Several streams are currently up for the Beta, check out our complete list
