It is time…
Time for the guild (well parts of it) to unit under the next big game of the year. Diablo 3. Which honestly is great news as this comes at a great time for the guild. With SWTOR slowly losing interest and games like ME3 and BF3 only appealing to small clicks within the guild – we needed something new to play. And Blizzard has answered the call…
So on May 15th the guild can either download or head-over to their local Bestbuy to pick this bad boy up. And by bad boy we mean the greatest evil mankind has ever known in the form of the Devil himself (hence the title on the box).
For those not interested in doing the digital download there is the option of spending a $100 on the Collector’s Edition. Tell me that’s not nuts! If you only want to spend the standard $60 you can logon to battle.net now and start the process.
Current Guild members interested:
Also note – if you want to skip out on the PC version the console version is in the works. Go figure.
