fields of misery
March 12, 2012
Update: The realms are back up and the bonus areas are gone. I just checked with 3 chars that had access last night, and the Festering Woods waypoint was no longer accessible to any of them. Pity Blizzard had to remove our fun, but at least these areas gave fans a hint of how much better the full game is than the limited content we have in the Beta test.

Screenshots have popped up from anonymous sources, claiming to be from beta testers who have found a way to enter additional content in the Diablo 3 Beta. The screenshots all show monsters and areas from the Fields of Misery and its sub-areas. That is the next surface area in the game, which is accessed through that locked gate at the north of the Cemetery of the Forsaken. (We previously saw this area in Blizzard’s “Inferno is really hard” video from Blizzcon 2011.)
