Diablo 3 servers now live in Australia

To coincide with the upcoming worldwide launch of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls on March 25, Australian servers are now live for Diablo 3 players, Blizzard Entertainment announced today.

The servers will be available to all Diablo 3 players and those who purchase the expansion, which users can begin to play from March 25 at 3:00 p.m. AEST. Characters, gold and experience will remain unaffected by the new server rollouts and product activation and initial authentication will still be handled by American Battle.net servers.

Those who play on the Australian servers will still be able to interact and communicate with U.S. players. When a game is created by a U.S. player, the game will be hosted on American data centers, while Australian and New Zealand-created games will be hosted Sydney-based data centers.

Blizzard does not currently offer local data centers in the region for its other titles, such as StarCraft and World of Warcraft. The company states that it will "continue to explore optimal server solutions for all of our franchises in region."
