Diablo 3 will be officially released in a few hours, the game can be installed by all those who pre-ordered the game, the digital version.
On the login screen, this is the current message that is displayed. “Diablo III is almost here! Servers goes live on May 15 at 00:00 AM CEST (Europe). Stand ready to storm the gates of the Burning Hells by creating your BattleTag on http://battle.net”.
Those that already got their BatteTag from the open beta Diablo 3 weekend don’t need to create a new one.
If you had the client downloaded for some time, you need a new client.
Head to eu.battle.net or us.battle.net and download the new client. You need to be sure that you download the right client.
Change to EU if you see US (US is by default client even if your account is from Europe). If you are from Europe, you need the Diablo 3 client named “Diablo-III-Setup-enGB.exe“.
Run the client, it will download 7.60 gigabytes of data. After the download is done, the installation interface will appear and you can select where you want to install Diablo 3.
If everything is ok, you should not encounter any errors.
Those who will get stuck at 7.60 gigabytes even though the interface is saying that 7.60 gigabytes of data has been downloaded, click cancel and run the “Diablo-III-Setup-enGB.exe” again. It will not re-download, it will just recheck the files and start the installation process. Wait around 10 minutes even if you get stuck at 7.60 gigabytes.
If you click cancel and try to install the game, you will get this error, “Tome2.mpqe Could Not Be Opened“.
Other error that can occur is this one: “Your Installation Disk Has Been Ejected“. This means you have the wrong version of the game, US instead of EU. Download the right Diablo 3 client as we have mentioned in this article.
