To celebrate Diablo IIIâ€™s one-year anniversary, Blizzard is offering free buffs for a week. From now until May 21st, players will receive a 25% boost to Magic Find and +EXP stats. According to Blizzard, â€œthe buff is only available while logged in to the game, but it will apply to all characters as well as stack with other similar bonuses — the +EXP bonus will stack multiplicatively and the Magic Find bonus will stack above the 300% cap.â€
In a post on battle.net, Blizzard noted that â€œmillions of heroes have been created, billions of hours have been spent in games, and trillions of demons have been slaughtered without mercy. We’ve grown and improved a lot since release, both as a game team and as a community, and thanks to your feedback, passion, and unquenchable bloodlust, we expect the next year to be even more epic.â€
Diablo III was originally released on May 15, 2012. In addition to this weekâ€™s buffs, fans are also celebrating with a variety of anniversary streams including giveaways.
Since launch, Diablo III has gone through multiple changes, including adding PvP brawling in February. A PlayStation 3 version is expected to be released this year.
