Firefall: Public Beta Weekend

Red 5 Studios have announced that their free to play MMO FPS Firefall will begin its first public beta test this Friday, as part of a 48 hour Beta Weekend.  To kick off the news, the studio has released a new action-packed trailer featuring the game’s latest content:


Diablo III Beta

Although the Diablo III Beta was made available on Friday, we weren’t able to get in right away.  Unsurprisingly, there was rather a lot of interest in the game, and Blizzard had to limit the number of concurrent logins while dealing with various server and login issues.

The beta contained the first four chapters of Act 1: after defending the town against the rising dead, players go to the Cathedral to find out what happened to Deckard Cain, go in search of the mad King Leoric’s crown, and then put an end to the Skeleton King and free the land from his army of the dead!

All five classes were available to choose from, though you could only level each up to level 13 during the beta.


Mists of OMG So Many Pandas

I finally got my own invite to the Mists of Pandaria beta this morning, having checked my email only minutes after finding out that the Diablo III beta is open this weekend as well!  Another weekend of beta gaming?  I nearly picked up some Relentless when we went shopping, too.

I’d been told the Pandaren starting area was busy.. but I don’t think I knew the meaning of “busy” before now!


Diablo III Open Beta Weekend

Blizzard have announced that the Diablo III Beta will be opened up this weekend!

From Friday, April 20 at 21:01 CEST, until Monday, April 23 at 19:00 CEST you’ll be able to log in, team up with friends, and play each of the five heroic classes to level 13 as you fight to save the world from the impending demonic invasion.

Woop! 🙂
