Diablo 3 officially launched in the Philippines thanks to IP E-Games

12 years. It’s taken 12 years for the follow up to Blizzard’s highly successful RPG, Diablo 2. Now Blizzard has unveiled the highly anticipated follow-up to one of the most iconic games of all time. IP E-Games, the official distributor of Diablo 3 in the Philippines says that this is the first time ever that our country will be officially participating in the launch of a Blizzard game.

Diablo 3 picks up years after the events of Diablo 2, and allows players to play with five characters – barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk and demon hunter – to battle the forces of darkness and embark on a long and epic journey throught the depths of hell itself. Some notable features of the game include an auction house system where players can buy and sell loot using in-game gold and more importantly, using real world money, a new quest and skill system and advanced social features and functionality.

The game will be available in a variety of retail outlets, which include iTech, Datablitz, Mineski, Digital Walker, Beyond the Box, PC Hub, PCQuest and a host of others. For a more complete list of official distributors, please go to http://diablo3.e-games.com.ph/where-to-buy. One thing that players need to note is that Diablo 3 needs an active internet connection to work – even if you’re just playing the single player game.

We asked IP E-Games if they will be offering prepaid cards to use in the game’s auction house (remember, only a fraction of pinoys have credit cards) to be able to buy items. Additionally, unlike Starcraft 2, there will be no other plans available (E-Games previously offered various day passes for Starcraft 2 before) – either you buy the box or you don’t get to play. Diablo 3 retails for Php 3,145.

That’s it for now, we’ll give you a more in-depth review of the game once we get more time with it.

    • You CANNOT play the game without an active internet connection. Even after you installed it, the game requires you to be connected to the servers at all times as an anti-piracy measure.
