Want to meet Diablo at midnight?

1 min read


Oooh, night time, when even the tamest people can seem like demons. Only now, they aren’t tame at all – they are el Diablo! AWX is hosting a midnight launch for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, and you can win cool stuff.

AWX in Randburg will be open tonight until midnight so that you can grab your copy. How does it work? Well, first of all, you should go over to their website and pre-order the game. Then, tonight, you can go to Randburg and collect it at the midnight launch. Don’t worry, though, it’s not just going to be a bunch of people standing in a queue. You can play dress up and win stuff.

That’s right, dress in a gothic theme, or as a Reaper, and you will automatically get goodies including limited edition merchandise, gift vouchers or a chance to win the Collector’s Edition. Sounds like such fun – I miss some of my old goth dresses, now! I knew I should have brought them with me to this country.

Remember guys, it’s really important to support events like this. Not only does this sound like a cool way to spend a Monday night, it’s also a good way to show the awesome guys from AWX that we like these events and they’re worthwhile to have. That will make it more likely that they’ll have a similar event for the launch of the next big game. South Africans often complain that we don’t get the cool launch events like they do in New York or London – so let’s show how much fun we can have at the launches we do have so that retailers and publishers can see that they are worthwhile. Besides, you can dress up like a reaper and go out in public.

After getting your copy, don’t forget to sign up to go play your shiny new game with other Joburgers courtesy of Megarom.

    I pre-ordered this from Kalahari and usually I get the shipped email a day before the release date. So far nothing and I’m going to be SUPER pi$$ed if RoS is not on my PC this time tomorrow.

      Same here. Have been battling with them the whole day and couldn’t get a straight answer from them yet. They say the mailed the serial to everyone who Preordered but no one that I know of received anything yet.

        Kalahari has really dropped the ball in the last few months. They botched my Batman AO order, even cancelled it the day before I was supposed to get the game, and then recently I had to battle them trying to get a refund on an order that I cancelled.

        Then… it’s been late deliveries. These days, I just use takealot. Sure, takealot is a little weak in terms of promotions and giving out vouchers, but at least I know that if they say something will be delivered on a date, it will arrive on that day.

        I’m not going to lie. Kalahari has been good to me. Funny thing is my order was in “Ready To Ship” status since early mid day today. Don’t truck this up Kalahari.

      This is why you pre order from Take Alot. Receveid my Mass Effect 3 and Diablo 3 on day of release. It was a sigh to behold, a van full of copies of ME3. 😀

      Only received my “dispatched” email this morning… guess I probably won’t have the game until the 27th 🙁

        Got my dispatched email also this morning and got the game a few minutes ago.

    Thanks AWX. You guys really went out of your way. Looking forward to future Midnight releases from you guys.

    As an old man, who gets grumpy when he doesn’t take his afternoon nap, I don’t think I can make these midnight meets… Bah Humbug!
