Blizzard is a company known for putting out great games and a pretty vibrant community as well, with staff members participating in forums and providing feedback and insights into the company’s various games. However those good feelings that we might have had for Blizzard are starting to wear thin, as the latest announcement made by the company does seem to be pretty controversial in nature. The developer has announced that gamers who purchase the Diablo 3 digital edition will have their access limited to the “Starter Edition” of the game for up to 72 hours, or “sometimes less”.
No word on why Blizzard is making this move and not surprisingly many players are upset. After all if you paid full price for a game, shouldn’t you be able to play it right away in its entirety? This further cements the arguments made for a single-player offline mode, whereby gameplay will not be affected by maintenance, login errors and latency. For those wondering, the Starter Edition of the game will cap the player’s level to 13 and will only give them access up to the Skeleton King level, and they will not be able to access both the Gold and Real Money Auction House. So who else is peeved by this latest announcement from Blizzard?Related articles:
