    So, According to Diablo: IncGamers » September Diablo 3 Beta Confirmed


    We pretty much knew this going into Gamescom, but a September start for the beta was given during the D3 Q&A session, and Bashiok elaborated on that time window in a forum post.

    Quote Originally Posted by Blizzard Quote

    Bashiok: That’s weird, they originally had the exact quote in their Inferno article and then pulled it out and only quoted “When it’s ready.” in that new mini-blip thing. I think his original quote on Kotaku was “by the end of September” but I didn’t copy it down.
    Anyway, to set expectations straight, beta in August is unlikely. But it shouldn’t be too long after.
    The rumor is that Blizzard has had the whole beta time frame set for weeks, and it’s going to start in the 2nd week of September. It’s just that Blizzard being Blizzard, they were not/are not going to tell us that date until it’s nearly upon us, and they are sure they can make it. And yes, “soon™”, “pretty soon™”, “shouldn’t be too long™”, and all other expressions of an indefinite period of time are trademarked by Blizzard’s Project Hourglass.
    Plus, Now Blizzard is putting up reminders for everyone to Opt-In: MMO-Champion - Patch 4.3 Interviews, Blue Posts, Diablo III Beta, Art Gallery Update

    It is almost time for Diablo III Beta, Blizzard posted another beta opt in reminder on the official blog and DiabloFans has some additional leaked gameplay to go with the screenshots below.

To be eligible to participate in the Diablo III beta test, you need an active Battle.net account with any Blizzard game title attached to it. If you don’t already have an account, it’s easy to create one. Once you’ve set up a Battle.net account, or if you’ve already got one, you can access it by visiting Battle.net and clicking the Account button on the upper right. Then, to opt into the beta, just click the Games & Codes section of your Account Management page, and then select the Beta Profile Settings option from the drop-down menu. You’ll be prompted to download the System Check beta opt-in application; running it will opt you in to the Diablo III beta. If your system specifications change, you can run the System Check application again to update your information.

    While running the System Check application doesn’t guarantee you a place in the Diablo III beta, we wish you luck and hope to see you in Sanctuary.

    FAQ:
    How are beta test participants selected from the opt-in pool?
    Beta testers are chosen according to their system specifications and other factors, including an element of luck. Our goal is to have a good variety of system types to best test compatibility.

    Will there be any other ways to get into the beta besides the opt-in?
    We’ll very likely be providing beta entry giveaways through various promotions on our sites, as well as through our official fansites. We’ll have information available on these promotions as they approach.

    How many players do you plan to invite to the beta test?
    The number of players we invite will be based on our testing needs. If during the course of testing we determine we need more players to participate, we’ll invite more.

    What game content will be available in the beta?
    You’ll be able to try out all five character classes and experience the early stages of Diablo III from the start of the game through the Skeleton King encounter. You’ll be able to interact with new and returning characters in New Tristram and fight the reawakened evils emanating from the cursed Tristram Cathedral.

    Will the PvP arenas be available in the beta?
    We don’t plan to include the PvP arenas in the beta test.

    How long will the beta test last?
    We have not determined an exact date for the end of the beta test. We will notify participants when the beta test is nearing completion.

    Will the Diablo III Auction House be available in the beta?
    We currently plan to test the functionality of the Diablo III gold-based auction house sometime after the initial beta launch.

    Will Mac users be able to participate in the beta?
    Yes, Mac users will be able to participate in the beta at the same time as Windows users.

    Yeah, but they wouldnt be telling everyone to Beta opt-in for the F&F.

    Plus, correct me if im wrong, but the F&F is alpha, and called "beta" cause the masses are ignorant of the workings of Alpha, Beta, etc.
