Blizzard have announced a pretty sweet deal for devout fans of their titles, specifically for WoW players also looking forward to Diablo 3. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Diablo series, Diablo 3 will be free, in its entirety, for anyone who signs up for a World of Warcraft Annual Pass. The Pass is essentially a 12-month contract that sees you still paying monthly to play WoW, it's just automated (and locks you in for the period), but you get a full digital copy of Diablo 3 you can play from day one.
You'll also be given access to the beta for World of Warcraft: Mists of Panderia, as well as Tyreal's Charger Mount for WoW, free, and exclusively from the annual pass purchase. You can click here right now to sign up and learn more
Box art and a Collector's Edition for Diablo 3 were also revealed. The CE will net you some pretty sweet swag including the game, an art book, the soundtrack, a behind-the-scenes DVD and a Soul Stone 4GB USB stick complete with an awesome Diablo head as its lid, and it'll come preloaded with Diablo 2. You'll also get in-game items for Diablo 3, World of WarCraft and StarCraft 2.
Stay tuned for local pricing and release details for the Diablo 3 Collector's Edition as soon as we have them.
