Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls will be released on 25 March 2014, a fact that was actually leaked by a Russian Blizzard support CM a few weeks ago. The official word is now in and there will be multiple editions to pick from but sadly no beta access with a pre-order.

    Pre-orders are being taken for the digital version and there’s also a Digital Deluxe Edition which comes with extras such as a collection of exclusive helm- and weapon-transmogrification recipes,  a loyal Spectral Hound minion, three additional character slots to accommodate new heroes, an in-game Treasure Goblin companion pet for World of Warcraft, and Crusader-themed Battle.net portraits and Malthael-themed decals for StarCraft II.
