Diablo III

It's no doubt that Blizzard loves to take your money. After all, that's why we keep playing World of Warcraft. Blizzard recently announced that users who sign up for the Annual Pass (NA) (EU) will be given a free copy of Diablo III when it releases early next year. The copies of Diablo III will be the complete version of the game and not some rip-off trial version.

If this wasn't enough swag to get you Wow-boys and Wow-girls excited, Blizzard has also announced more things that they are including with the Annual Pass. They are launching a new mount called Tyrael's Charger and guaranteed beta access to the upcoming Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria expansion.

In their own words:

Tyrael's Charger WoW Flying Mount - Ride for the Archangel of Justice on all current and future characters on a single World of Warcraft account. Tyrael's Charger will arrive via in-game mail with the upcoming launch of patch 4.3.

Access to the Next WoW Expansion Beta Test - Get a guaranteed spot in the beta test for the next World of Warcraft expansion (at a time to be announced in the future).

The only catch is that players had to have an account registered by October 18th this year. The Annual Pass is a twelve month commitment, though you can pay in whatever installments you want. More information can be found at their official FAQ page (NA FAQ) (EU FAQ).

Does the incentive of receiving these bonuses and a copy of Diablo III excite you enough to purchase an Annual Pass? How many of you already have the Annual Pass?

Update for 11/3: The World of Warcraft Annual Pass has been expanded to include more countries and is now available in Russia, Switzerland, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore.
