We learnt yesterday that anyone with a Diablo III pre-order at GAME is unlikely to get a copy or see that money again. Today, publisher Blizzard has come to the rescue.
Blizzard will offer a rebate to anyone who lost their pre-order at GAME, reports MCV.
"We're aware that some Australian GAME customers have been left out in the cold on what should be the hottest night of the year -- the launch of Diablo III. To help with this situation and get these players into the game as soon as possible, we've put the following process in place," said a message on the official forums.
To get the rebate, follow these steps:
1. Purchase the digital version of Diablo III from http://www.diablo3.com now or anytime before May 21, 2012.
2. Download and start playing when the servers go live!
3. Submit your GAME Australia preorder/prepurchase receipt to us before June 30, 2012.
4. Receive a credit from Blizzard, for the amount you paid in advance to GAME Australia for Diablo III. This credit will be applied to the payment method used for the digital purchase.
