The game will be both sold in retail stores and as a digital download from the Blizzard website for $60. There is also a retail exclusive Collectors Edition that comes with a behind the scenes Blu-ray/DVD set, a soundtrack CD, an art book, and full copies of Diablo II and its expansion pack all for $100. You can also earn a copy of the game if you play World of Warcraft.
