The closed beta for Diablo III has officially begun and invitations to select gamers are in the process of being sent out

Blizzard has announced that the closed beta testing phase for the long awaited Diablo III has begun.

Some invitations have already been issued and more will likely go out as the beta continues. In the game's closed beta selected gamers will have to fight their way through Act I, and can opt to play as any of the five hero classes, barbarian, witch doctor, monk, wizard and demon hunter.

The players will have to face the Skeleton King and attempt to take him down, either by themselves or by playing cooperatively with other players. Players will get to meet artisans and followers as well as important characters from the Sanctuary and will get to try out the game's skill and crafting systems.

Mike Morhaime, CEO and Co-Founder of Blizzard Entertainment said, "This closed beta test is an important milestone for us as we enter the final stages of development on Diablo III. Our goal is to create the best action role-playing game experience to date, building on everything we've learned since the release of Diablo II and incorporating the powerful features of the new Battle.net platform. We hope players enjoy participating in the beta test and we look forward to hearing their feedback."
