Diablo III Starter Edition is a Free Trial/Demo

By
Posted on May 14, 2012 AT 07:19am

Not quite sure if you want to take the plunge and purchase Diablo III? Well the Starter Edition should help you decide.

A Starter Edition of the game will be available to download from Battle.net for the next 30 days, but there’s a catch. The download will only be accessible via a Guest Pass, these can only be obtained from boxed copies of the game. So you had better hope that one of your friends plans on buying it.

It contains roughly the same content as the beta did, allowing you to play up to Act 1 and level a character up to 13. You will only be able to use the matchmaking feature with other Starter Edition players and the Real-Money Auction House will be unavailable. If you have a mate who has been bugging you to get the game, then ask him/her to throw you over a code and you can try it out before sacrificing any money.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
