If youÂre looking to check out some of the gameplay footage from Diablo III, your cup is about to runneth over my friends. Diablo III's Friends and Family beta phase is now underway and it seems that Blizzard decided not to tie their friend's and family's hands with an NDA. So this means that they can pretty much post whatever they want and they haven't been shy about doing so.
Kotaku recently tracked down a few places that beta footage can be seen both live and in previously played videos here and here (this one is not streaming as of this posting but check later). With a little more searching, we also found some here and here. Enjoy!
As another bit of good news, the public closed beta test is said to be "very close" in Bashiok's post.
FYI, weÂre getting very close to starting the closed public beta test for Diablo III. You might start seeing some new reports about the beta client as weÂve begun limited external testing with employees and their families, and there is no non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for that. We look forward to sharing more info about the beta test in the near future. Stay tuned.
If you have a beta license, you are free to show, share, or talk about any portion of the beta content to which you have access, as this beta test is not confidential.
