Those yet to dip their toes in Diablo 3's lava pools can now try the game for free via the Diablo 3 Starter Edition. The demo is available now exclusively through Available exclusively through Battle.net (opens in new tab) and you can grab details on how to download it on the Diablo 3 blog . You'll be able to fight as far as level 13, which should take you up to the first proper boss, the Skeleton King.
The Starter Edition has had a bit of a rocky history. It went live for a brief period before launch in a glitch that was quickly patched up and, for a time, purchasers of the digital edition were limited to the starter edition for 72 hours in a move to thwart gold spammers, though those restrictions were later relaxed. Now, it's finally out and working as intended, which is nice.
