Diablo III players with a digital copy can now breathe easy
Players who have purchased a digital copy of Diablo III can finally take a breather. They are no longer required to wait to play the whole game.
The two major restrictions forced upon players have been removed. Before, players were limited to play Act 1, but now they are free to play the full game and to gain rank past dreaded level 13.
- Although not all restrictions have been removed. Others have remained such as:
- No public game access for unverified digital purchasers
- No auction house access (real-money or gold) for unverified digital purchasers
- Unverified digital purchasers cannot trade items or drop items for other players to receive
- Unverified digital purchasers are not able to chat in any public or game channels
- Unverified digital purchasers cannot attach a custom message to friend requests, but they can send/accept friend requests, and play with their friends
- Global Play is not available for unverified digital purchasers
To make a long story short, you won't be able to be a massive prick to anyone...Not that anyone will complain about a lack of annoyance anyway. The verification takes a max of 72 hours but players have been cleared to play thge game to it's fullest much sooner.
Props to Blizzard who since the launch of Diablo III have been listening to their fans and making their concerns and voices heard a priority.
