Diablo 3 demo dubbed 'Starter Edition'
Better make sure your friends are picking up Diablo 3, because you’ll need the Guest Pass that comes with it to enjoy the game for free. Well, actually it’s a glorified demo, allowing gamers to play Act 1 up to the Skeleton King, and up to a maximum character level of 13.
Freeloaders will get access to the matchmaking feature, too, though it will only be with other ‘Starter Edition’ players. Oh, and you won’t be able to use the Real Money Auction House either.
Blizzard also announced the impending launch of ‘Character Profiles’. It helps track and present your progress in the game. You will be able to see your heroes and their skills and equipment. The studio also has plans to display artisans and achievements.
