The Diablo 3 beta opens officially for a weekend today, from 8pm UK time (BST), Blizzard has announced.

"Everyone" is invited. You'll need a Battle.net account and a BattleTag. And you'll need to download Diablo 3. That's it. All free.

The beta weekend ends on Monday, at 6pm BST. Oh no, I can feel a cough coming on now.

The Diablo 3 client supports English, French and German for both Windows and Mac. There will be more languages at launch.

Closed beta testers can join in too, and they'll be able to play on after the weekend ends, up to 1st May, when the beta completely ends.

The Diablo 3 beta accidentally opened up earlier this week.
