Starting that day, gamers with a thirst for fast-paced action and adventure will be able to purchase Diablo III at retailers and online at Blizzard’s Battle.net website.

In some Latin American countries and Russia, fans will be able to purchase Diablo III at local retailers starting 7 June.

“After many years of hard work by our development team and months of beta testing by hundreds of thousands of dedicated players around the world, we are now in the homestretch,” Mike Morhaime, Blizzard Entertainment CEO and co-founder, said.

“We look forward to putting the final polish on Diablo III over the next two months and delivering the ultimate action-RPG experience to gamers worldwide starting on May 15.”

In Diablo III, players take on the role of one of five heroic characters — barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk or demon hunter — engaging in pulse-pounding combat with endless legions of evil.

As they undertake an epic quest to rid Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells, players will explore diverse and perilous settings, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power and meet key characters who will join them in battle or aid them in other ways.
