Earlier this year, we revealed Diablo III: Book of Tyrael, and today we’re pleased to announce this epic compendium is now available for pre-order.
Emblazoned with the emblem of the Horadrim and featuring over 140 pages of tantalizing text, Diablo III: Book of Tyrael is a stunning follow-up to Diablo III: Book of Cain, delving even further into the realm of Sanctuary and the individuals who shaped its fate. In this beautifully-illustrated and comprehensive tome, the Archangel of Wisdom reveals never-before-known secrets about the history of the world, the dark threats that yet face mankind, and his decision to join the ranks of humanity as a mortal. It also includes letters from Leah and additional fragments of Cain’s writings, all curated by Tyrael as he weaves together a series of complex and fascinating stories for fellow members of the Horadrim.
In addition, Diablo III: Book of Tyrael features a fully removable illustration of the Leoric family tree and other influential characters from Old Tristram including Deckard Cain, Prince Albrecht, Archbishop Lazarus, King Leoric, Prince Aidan, Queen Asylla, Leah, and Adria.
You're bound to encounter some familiar faces within its lush pages.
In preparation for its release in October, Insight Editions has launched a special landing page for this remarkable companion book. Adventurers keen to journey deeper into the depths of Sanctuary's lore and experience every last inch of this heavenly artifact can visit Insight Edition's site for more details about Diablo III: Book of Tyrael.

In the months ahead, the game launchers for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, and Diablo III will be automatically updated to our new desktop app for Battle.net, designed to improve the launcher experience and streamline your ability to play Blizzard games—but if you're interested in upgrading now, you can!
The open beta test has begun, and everyone's invited to download and install the app now in preparation for the switchover. If you're interested in upgrading in advance, simply click the button below.
What's this launcher update do? The new single sign-on functionality allows players to log in once to access World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, and the upcoming PC and Mac versions of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and stay logged in for up to 30 days.
Players can also install games directly through the app and, if you choose to leave the app running on your desktop, keep them up-to-date automatically even while you’re away from your computer. Please note that it’s entirely up to you whether you wish to leave the app running—you can exit it at any time, and it will automatically re-launch whenever your standard launchers would.
For more information, check out the FAQ.
Once the open beta test ends, everyone's launcher will be updated automatically when they start up the launcher for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, or Diablo III. Players will be auto-updated in waves over time, so the exact date you’ll get the update will vary from person to person.
Today also marks the end of our Battle.net desktop app closed beta test. If you've already been using the app as part of the closed beta group, you don’t need to redownload or reinstall anything—you're already good to go. Thanks again for all of your great feedback throughout the course of our testing, and we look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts on the open beta in the Battle.net forums.
Blizzard has just posted a teaser promoting something called "Reaper of Souls". There's not much to see on the site so far, just an image of a shadowy entrance with cryptic text.
Ever since the recent news that Blizzard has a Diablo related announcement at its Gamescom press conference on August 21, rumors have been rampant with the talk of an expansion. Although these rumors have yet to be officially confirmed, the evidence is slowly growing.
Gamescom should be exciting!
