Saturday, June 23, 2012 7:48:02 AM GMT
Blizzard has clarified some details surrounding the "review process" that new players will have to undertake when purchasing a digital copy of Diablo III. It seems that the studio misspoke when it said that players under review would be stuck in the Starter Edition of the game -- however, new users will still be stuck behind a gate until they're deemed worthy of full entry.

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1881 days, 7 hours, 47 minutes ago
Saturday, June 23, 2012 7:44:41 AM GMT
Blizzard's patch 1.0.3 for Diablo 3 restricts anyone who buys a digital copy of the game to play the Starter Edition for up to 72 hours, limiting them to play only Act 1 to the Skeleton King, and only to level 13. While the restrictions themselves aren't a bug, the limitation to Act 1 and level 13 is an "unintended consequence" and will be corrected in another update "as soon as possible," Blizzard tells Eurogamer.

History books will one day look back on the turn of the century as the "Era of Patent Infringement" or something even more clever. They'll report that corporations were fighting over the rights of touch controls, operating systems, smileys and now even virtual worlds. (more)
