Diablo III v1.05 To Be Released Today
Blizzard have just announced, via the Diablo III forums, that the game servers will be down for maintenance today as they prepare the launch of the eagerly anticipated patch v1.05.
We will be performing scheduled maintenance for Diablo III starting today at 3:00 a.m. PDT in order to deploy patch 1.0.5. We anticipate that maintenance will conclude and that all services will be available by approximately 1:00 p.m. PDT.
Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download patch 1.0.5 until the patch is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after patch 1.0.5 is live until those regions have also patched.
Different regions will be updated at different times, as seen below:
The Americas: 3:00 a.m. PDT (10/16) to 1:00 p.m. PDT (10/16)
Europe: 6:00 p.m. PDT (10/16) to 4:00 a.m. PDT (10/17)
Asia: 1:00 p.m. PDT (10/17) to 11:00 p.m. PDT (10/17)
Diablo III was arguably one of the biggest gaming disappointments of this year. Pegged by many to be the next big thing, the game fell short of the expectations of thousands of Diablo fans. Blizzard have since been working hard to push out new updates and content, hoping to revive what was once considered the greatest ARPG franchise of our time.
