Patch 4.2.2 on Live Realms (probably) this Week
The final version of Patch 4.2.2 (Build 14645) hit the Blizzard download servers and it means the patch will most likely go live this week. Last week's build was flagged as release but wasn't deployed to be ready as a live patch, but this build seems to be the right one (unless something terrible happens, as usual, but it never does).
This patch doesn't really have anything interesting for players, it's mostly a bug fixes patch with a way to consolidate most of the Patch 4.2 hotfixes into the game files to display them properly.
With that launch finally behind us, we will finally have a chance to see Patch 4.3 deployed on test realms soon!
When's the Diablo 3 Beta?
People keep asking when the D3 beta is, and it's pretty hard to give an actual date. Fansites have been contacted and asked to give contact info (battle.net accounts) for an access to the beta.
The beta is definitely approaching and we probably won't have to wait much longer before we see something happen! As usual, keep an eye on Diablofans.com
for any D3 related update.
