Blizzard fixes Diablo III GAME situation with free copy of the game

by William Schwartz


Diablo III fans that pre-ordered from GAME in Australia, got some bad news this weekend.  After plunking down the cash to secure their copy of the game, the retailer went into bankruptcy and decided that they would not be honoring the purchases.

Blizzard has responded, and well, hopefully those poor souls have kept their reciepts.

We’re aware that some Australian GAME customers have been left out in the cold on what should be the hottest night of the year — the launch of Diablo III. To help with this situation and get these players into the game as soon as possible, we’ve put the following process in place.

Australian GAME customers with a valid preorder/prepurchase receipt dated before May 15, 2012 can do the following:
1. Purchase the digital version of Diablo III from now or anytime before May 21, 2012.

2. Download and start playing when the servers go live!

3. Submit your GAME Australia preorder/prepurchase receipt to us before June 30, 2012.

4. Receive a credit from Blizzard, for the amount you paid in advance to GAME Australia for Diablo III. This credit will be applied to the payment method used for the digital purchase.

We’ll post further details here on how to submit your GAME Australia receipt to our customer service team as soon as possible. Stay tuned, and we look forward to seeing you in the Burning Hells!

Looks like things are sounding better for the affected Diablo III fans down-under.
