Blizzard has finally announced a release date for the highly anticipated Diablo III - the game will go on sale on May 15. From that day you'll be able to buy the game from retailers in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Korea, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.

The game will also be available from Battle.net in all the above territories, as well as in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil.

"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're now in the homestretch," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "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."

You can reserve your digital copy of the game now on Blizzard's website. Diablo III will be available for Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7 and Macintosh at an SRP of £44.99 - both the retail DVD and digital version.

A special alabaster-white Collector's Edition, sold exclusively in retail stores at a SRP of £69.99, will include the full game on DVD, a behind-the-scenes Blu-ray/DVD two-disc set, the Diablo III soundtrack CD, a 208-page Art of Diablo III book, and a 4 GB USB soulstone (including full versions of Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction) and corresponding Diablo skull base, as well as exclusive in-game content for Diablo III, World of Warcraft, and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

My gut tells me to pick a Demon Hunter as my first class, because they look awesome.

That's what I call a Collector's Edition.

I've never played Diablo, but I like loot and I like RPGs, so I might actually buy this. Would like to try a demo to see if my PC can handle it, though.
