Diablo 3 Global Play
Diablo 3 Global Play was introduced a new functionality that allows you to play in game servers in regions outside of your own, no more making accounts on multiple realms to play with other people!
- The Americas - For players in the US, Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia.
- Europe - For players in the European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, and Middle Eastern countries such as Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
- Asia - For players in South Korea and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.
This was something that always deterred the competitive side of PvP back in the D2 days if anyone remembers. Not to mention the fact that ladder resets (They are doing away with ladder resets don’t worry! That is another post in itself) and duped items.
Anyways players will create characters and play in their “home” region. This is determined by where they live. This allows Global Play to give players the ability to switch to any of the other game regions either before or after they log in.
