World of Warcraft subscribers get Diablo III for free

1 min read


Some more good news for Blizzard fans out of this year’s Blizzcon is that those who subscribe to World of Warcraft will get the anticipated RPG click-a-thon Diablo III for the price of nothing. Sort of.

In the Blizzcon opening ceremony, Blizzard’s President and CEO Mike Morhaime announced the World of Warcraft Annual Pass; a sort of digital pledge that you’ll commit to a whole year of World of Warcraft, which can be billed monthly. There’s no real saving involved, but it does bag you a couple of neat extras – one of which is a full digital copy of Diablo III for no extra cost. Nice!

Here’s what you have to do to make sure you’re eligible :

  1. Have a World of Warcraft account existing on or before Oct. 18, 2011
  2. Purchase the World of Warcraft annual pass
  3. Login in to to claim your free standard version of Diablo III when its released
  4. Profit!

In addition, you’ll also get Tyrael’s Charger, an exclusive mount for World of Warcraft, as well as guaranteed access to the next expansion’s Panda-infused beta.

For those World of Warcraft players who’re eyeing the rather sexy physical Collector’s edition of Diablo III, doing the same will get 4 months added to your World of Warcraft subscription.

  1. Buy the Diablo III collector’s edition
  2. Have a World of Warcraft account existing on or before Oct. 18, 2011
  3. Purchase the World of Warcraft annual pass
  4. Enter the included Diablo 3 license key into your associated
  5. Profit!

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
