With all regions now enjoying the game Blizzard pointed out that Global Play is now live for everyone making it easier to hook up with international buddies.

    Global Play is now available! To access other game regions via Global Play:

    • At the Diablo III login screen, click on “Options”
    • Select the “Account” tab
    • From the drop-down, choose which region you want to play in and click “Accept”

    You will be able to choose from the following regions:

    • The Americas (North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia)
    • Europe (European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, and Middle Eastern countries such as Israel and the United Arab Emirates)
    • Asia (South Korea and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau)

    Please note that characters, items, and friends lists do not transfer across regions. Playing on a different region’s servers means you’ll be creating characters and friends lists specifically for that region, and you’ll be accessing the gold-based auction house for that region.

    To learn more about Global Play in Diablo III, see the FAQ.

    If you receive an error the first time logging into a different region, log out out of Diablo III, exit the client, and then log back in. This should resolve any login errors related to Global Play.
