Diablo 3 launching without PvP

PvP Arena system to be released in a patch post-launch

Posted on
Blizzard has announced that Diablo 3 will ship without a PvP system.

The developers took to the
official website to announce the decision, which they say was made due to lack of polish on the current PvP model and their desire to release the game instead of delaying again.

"We’ve made the difficult decision to hold back the PvP Arena system and release it in a patch following the game’s launch. After a lot of consideration and discussion, we ultimately felt that delaying the whole game purely for PvP would just be punishing to everyone who’s waiting to enjoy the campaign and core solo/co-op content, all of which is just about complete," wrote Jay Wilson.

"When the PvP patch is ultimately ready, it will add multiple Arena maps with themed locations and layouts, PvP-centric achievements, and a matchmaking system that will help you and your team get into fairly matched games quickly and easily. We’ll also be adding a personal progression system that will reward you for successfully bashing in the other team’s skulls."

It has been noted that a release date announcement is coming very soon. Previous leaks suggest an April release date is possible.

Diablo 3 is coming to Windows PC, with console versions also possible at a later date.
