Pre-Download Diablo 3, Hipster Leah and Blizzard Release Timeline

Hipster LeahA Diablo III themed meme has caught fire recently featuring a hipster version of Leah saying a host of things the Diablo 3 community will get a chuckle from. Some of them are actually pretty funny, and I’m sure the community could think of a host of topics a hipster Leah might poke fun at. You can generate the meme over at memegenerator.

Diablo 3 CM’s such as DiabloWikiKaivax, DiabloWikiDaxxarri, and DiabloWikiBashiok have caught on to the meme, posting some of their favorites on twitter. It seems that the image posted to the left is the most popular. Because it’s true.

In semi-related comical Diablo III news (or facepalm worthy news, depending on your perspective), Kotaku has released a nice timeline that depicts the release continuum for Blizzard since its inception. It truly is hard to believe that it’s been 12 years since Diablo 2 was released, and the sequel has only just been given a release date. The gap, rivaled by Starcraft 2, pale in comparison to the healthy World of Warcraft release timeline. It’s something to be expected, but we can only hope to see the healthy continuation of the Diablo franchise in the coming years.

On another note, those that have opted in to the year subscription of World of Warcraft to recieve Diablo III free or if you have pre-ordered the digital download, you can already download the game! However, you can’t install it or crack any of the information. It’ll make things a bit easier for you, though, come release day.

In fact, as of this morning, players who sign up for the Annual Pass can pre-download the Diablo III game client by visiting Account Management.

  1. not just wow annual pass owner, pre-orders on also allows download, just finished mine.

  2. Ummmmm its kind of odd that you can download the full game now when there’s a patch coming out this weekend…. Wonder if you’ll have to download it later 😀 ha ha I don’t care about digital i want CE can’t wait to have the soulstone on my work desk! 

    • Of course anyone who downloads the full game now should be expecting further patches and updates closer to, and when, the game launches.

      It’s quite likely there’ll be another 1 or 2 patches for the beta after 15 as well, we do have 2 months to go still after all. 

  3. i wonder if anyone will crack it and get it running on their own server before release

    • It probably is similar to pre-loading with new Steam games, whereas a few MBs of crucial data is cut out until release date, so you can’t really do anything with the downloaded stuff.

      Although I don’t see how people can’t data-mine the pre-loaded Diablo III files. 

  4. It sucks that everything has to be turned into a meme these days.

  5. That’s pretty awesome though. Get the Core game downloaded now, then just patch as you need to. Much quicker and will ensure you are IN the game upon release.

  6. I doubt there’ll be more patches for the release client before release… just a massive patch on Day 1.
    As for memes, there have ALWAYS been memes 🙂 That is what “culture” is… a collection of prefabricated formulas with minor variations repeated ad nauseum, shared among a group and defining group identity. Sure we used to call them things like proverbs, idioms, songs and knock-knock jokes, but it’s the same thing! They are just more colorful now that we can easily add graphics 😉
