Diablo® III

CE and midnight release

So, for those of use that went the route of pre-ordering the CE, is there any way we can get in on the midnight play? Or are we stuck waiting for the game to be shipped? I know this is a silly question, as we'll need the CD Key off the box, but is there ANY way?

Did you pre-order it from a retailer? If so, contact the store. Most places are going to do a midnight release.

If not, walk into Wal-Mart at midnight and look to see if they have it. I've never done it personally, but several people who post here have, and have waited in no lines. Then, you can just refund the pro-order the next day at the other store.

The Collector's Edition is only available from retail, and that means to play as soon as possible you'll want to hit a midnight release to pick it up. We don't have any plans to release a digital CE, it's a retail-only kind of thing. But! you may have a few options.

If you have the [url="http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/3767193/Sign_Up_for_the_World_of_Warcraft_Annual_Pass_and_Get_Diablo_III_Free-10_21_2011"]WoW Annual Pass[/url] (or go sign up for it now) you get a free digital copy of Diablo III. This will give you the game right at midnight, you can go download right now, all that stuff. Then, when you pick up your CE, you can overwrite the standard edition license with the CE license and you'll be granted 4 months of game time (more or less equivalent to the cost of the standard edition). So that's a good option. More info also available in the [url="http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/world-of-warcraft-annual-pass-faq"] Annual Pass FAQ[/url].

Alternatively, you can get the digital version now, play right at midnight, overwrite your license with your CE when you pick it up, and then contact our support department. In most situations they'll be able to grant you a new standard key, which you can then give to a friend, or whatever.

there you go since you dont like to use search before asking questions

...As above.

I'll be waiting in line at the midnight release. Only thing is.... I don't know if my EB Games has a midnight release, seeing as it's in an actual mall and not a stand-alone building.

Sonofabi--- why didn't I think of this earlier.

I guess I'll just wait for the 1-day shipping. It's amazing how far behind you can get in a day though lol
