Diablo 3 emerges from hell May 15

This is it, folks. It's officially official: Everyone can finally return to Tristram on May 15 when Diablo 3 finally, finally launches. Interested dungeon crawlers can pre-purchase the game from Battle.net right now in order to "be ready to play the minute the servers go live."

Blizzard also took a moment to remind everyone that you can still snag a free copy of Diablo 3 by signing up for a World of Warcraft annual pass. The deal expires on May 1. If you're looking for something a touch more physical, you'll be able to nab the retail collector's edition, which includes lots of extra goodies, for $99.99.
