Blue replies to a few points worth reading, from Friday afternoon.
A fan asked if the content of the “Friends & Family” beta would differ at all from the full “Enemies & Strangers” beta, and got a reply from Bashiok.
Hopefully that clears it up.
And before you ask, no we don’t know when the full closed beta will begin. Testing is going really well so far but we do have some issues we want to try to resolve first.
We have it on good authority that the closed beta is due to begin on 16th, this was the case a few weeks ago and as far as we know is still on track but of course it’s always subject to slippages.
Click through for more Blue comments on the Templar’s voice actor, localized versions of the Beta, and the red target outline.
Bashiok: It is! Good ear.
A fan pointed out that there is no toggle on/off option for the targeting highlight, and remembers that Bashiok said we would have such a thing. CM Zhydaris replies that there will be more options in the final game, without specifically confirming anything to modify the red target outline.
The release version will include more options related to graphics and gameplay.
Finally, a long and somewhat confusing series of replies on the UE forums states that the only beta servers now online are in North America, and that the Beta client will be English-only. Though there will be numerous localized versions of Diablo III upon the full game launch, of course.
