Diablo III’s Clans and Communities feature detailed

Posted on February 20, 2014 AT 05:53am

Blizzard has detailed a new Diablo III social feature, that is currently available for testing as part of patch 2.0.1 on the Public Test Realm, that allows players to join Clans and Communities.

According to the developer, Clans are “designed to provide players who share similar interests, gameplay schedules, or goals the ability to band together and form tight-knit groups.” Clans have a limit of 120 people as they “are intended to be smaller and invitation only.” Players may only be a member of one Clan at a time.

Communities on the other hand “are designed to be a place where players can come together for any number of reasons, including playing the same class, frequenting the same fan sites, or living in the same geographical area,” according to Blizzard. They have no player cap and players can be part of multiple Communities at the same time.

“They’re all about fostering relationships between like-minded people, with a keen focus on socialization,” the developer added.

Players can test out these new features via the Reaper of Souls Closed Beta or the Public Test Realm.
