Tonight will see the Diablo 3 beta open up to the public for the weekend from Friday, April 20 at 12:01 p.m. PDT (noon), until Monday, April 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, Blizzard has announced.

"Everyone" is welcome they say. Of course you'll need to bag a Battle.net account and a BattleTag. Then just download Diablo 3 and you're ready to go. And all for free!

Of course any closed beta testers are welcome to join, though they'll have the chance to continue  after the weekend and up to May 1st, which marks the end of the beta officially.

Ealier this week the Diablo 3 beta was accidentally opened for a short while, much to the delight of a fair few gamers.
