New Invites Out For 'Reaper of Souls' Beta

A round of invitations went out for the expansion beta

Diablo III Reaper of Souls - Closed Beta
As promised last week, more Diablo III players have been invited to the Closed Beta for the Reaper of Souls expansion! There are numerous reports of new players getting into the beta, as the Diablo III developers broaden the pool of invitees further, before the end of the beta process.

While Blizzard does email information about the beta invitation to players, there are numerous phishing scams that attempt to copy those emails. The safest way to check on any invitation (as well as sign up for beta invites to Blizzard games) is by logging into your account in the Beta Preferences. Desktop App Required
The Desktop App is the new way of keeping all your Blizzard games up to date, and it is required to play the beta for the expansion. It will also be required to play Diablo III at all, once patch 2.0.1 arrives. Diablo III players who are still using the old launcher should go ahead and download the new Desktop App, to make sure it's all working well for them before the big patch arrives. In the Diablo III technical support forum, Omrakos discussed the change. The new desktop app is arriving first as required for Diablo III, but eventually it will be required for all of Blizzard's games.

I understand your concerns but StarCraft II and World of Warcraft will both be required to use the Desktop App eventually as well. The time frame for those games has not yet been made available, but they're coming soon.

We want people having issues to post about them so the developers can make sure the bugs are ironed out. The correct place for posting those issues is another set of forums located here:

If you haven't yet downloaded the Desktop App, be sure to get it installed and running, so you can jump in and play patch 2.0.1 as soon as it arrives on the live servers!
