Although the NDA about Diablo 3’s latest news will be lifted in a few days, a user decided to leak almost everything on his Twitter. That particular person participated in Blizzard’s Press Event that was held yesterday and revealed that the much anticipated beta of Diablo III will begin on August 15th.
As always, take all of this with a grain of salt. This anonymous user revealed even more details about Battle.net and Diablo III. According to him, Battle.net system is operational with AMM and will automatically match players by their level and quest progression.
Moreover, there will be a trading system integrated with battle.net interface and although there won’t be any mailbox functionality, shared stash will be accessible on battle.net interface.
Players will be able to list their items into the market via ingame or Battle.net by putting them in the yellow-shaded area of your stash.
Town portals will be in and players can use them when there are no nearby monsters. Pretty much like in Diablo II.
Last but not least, custom games are enhanced as there are now visual identifiers that show how complete the quest/boss progression is in that particular game.
