As you know, the closed Diablo 3 beta has started for some LUCKY game journalists and all Blizzard employees (about 5000). Btw, if you know a Blizzard employee, page him because he has additional invites for family and friends.
For the rest us, we could follow several beta testers feeds that provide streaming video as they play. The quality is not superb but you can get a pretty good idea of what’s happening. Ignore the coala at the start… (imagine it’s a panda, i don’t care).
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.
