Blizzard has revealed that those that buy a digital version of Diablo III will only have access to the Starter Edition for 72 hours as part of the company’s efforts to crack down on credit card fraud. This means that players will have their level capped at 13, will only be able to play up to Act I, will not be able to play with anyone other than Starter Edition players and will have no Auction House access.

“Outside of the issue that we fixed, digital purchases do require a review period before they kick over from Starter to Full editions. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is a necessary step to combat fraud and other malicious activities that can weaken everyone’s play experience,” said Blizzard on the issue. “The delay is no longer than three days, and is often much quicker than that. Hang tight.”
