Diablo III for Mac, Windows to be released May 15

updated 09:15 pm EDT, Thu March 15, 2012

Game will have stiff graphic requirements

Nearly four years after it was first announced, and a remarkable 12 years after the previous sequel, Blizzard has announced that Diablo III will now ship on May 15th for both Mac and Windows. Pre-orders are now open on Blizzard's Battle.net site. The game will be localized for 11 languages on launch and is set 20 years after the events of Diablo II, in the town of Tristam, the location of the original Diablo.

The Diablo series started off in 1996 with the original release, which was available for Mac, Windows and PlayStation. The new game sees players return to the town of Tristam amid reports of a fallen star. Evil has been reborn, and the end times are upon the world.

Gamers can take on one of five characters (demon hunter, monk, wizard, barbarian or witch doctor) to combat the "endless legions of evil" the game promises. Diablo III also features a new randomizer element, making for different landscapes and loot in every game so that no two experiences are exactly alike.

The game will sell for $60, with a collector's edition available that will contain bonus items and cost $100. Minimum Mac requirements include running OS X 10.6.8 or later on an Intel Core 2 Duo or faster, with either an Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT or ATI Radeon HD 2600 or better and 2GB of RAM. Recommended requirements ask for OS X Lion to be installed and an Nvidia GeForce GT 330 or ATI Radeon HD 4670 or better.
