Diablo III playable at BlizzCon

The event starts today.

Blizzard plans to offer hands-on time with Diablo III at the BlizzCon this weekend.

That's according to official paperwork for the event (spotted by Joystiq), which gets up and running later today.

And we're there; James Lee from GamesIndustry.biz has put on his robe and wizard hat to brave the legions of Blizzard lovers to get at the goods.

The goods being StarCraft II, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King and Diablo III - as well as the neatly-dressed executives who say things on the record.

Diablo III was unveiled over the summer in lengthy gameplay trailers, cinematics, and screenshots. You can find these on our Diablo III gamepage. There's enough excitement for everybody.
