Playing as a hero from one of five distinct character classes, players will acquire powerful items, spells, and abilities as they explore new and familiar areas of Sanctuary and battle hordes of demons to safeguard the world from the horrors that have arisen. –

The release date for Diablo III is yet to be announced! But Frank Pierce said that “as much as possible it will be our goal to release simultaneously worldwide”.
