Diablo III has entered into its second beta stage, opening up to invite only participants that have opted in with their Battle.net accounts. The company has begun to issue their first wave of invitations to test their latest. You can check for your beta status on your account settings page on your Battle.net account, if you’ve been invited, you’ll be able to begin downloading the beta client.
If you haven’t signed up to participate in betas with your Battle.net account, you can still register you account for inclusion. The beta includes a good portion of Act 1, and the five character classes: Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard.
As announced earlier, the beta will require you to have a internet connection active when playing the game. If you didn’t receive an invite on first pass, keep an eye on your Battle.net account for the second wave of invites.
