Excitement for the next installment in the Diablo franchise has been building for some time now, and the wait is almost over. Blizzard Entertainment has just announced the dates for the Diablo 4 Open Beta, as well as details on early access for those who pre-order the premium edition or higher.
Closed Beta Details
The closed beta will take place on the weekend of March 17th to 19th and will be limited to those who have pre-ordered the premium edition or higher. The beta will allow players to explore the prologue and the first zone of the game, giving them a taste of the adventure to come.
Diablo 4 Open Beta Details
For those who haven’t pre-ordered the premium edition or higher, the good news is that there will be an open beta the following weekend, March 24 to 26. This means that everyone will have the chance to experience Diablo 4 ahead of its release.
What to Expect
During both the closed and open betas, players will be able to level up their characters to level 25 and explore the prologue and the first zone of the game entirely. This means that players will be able to get a feel for the gameplay, including the game’s new mechanics, classes, and systems.
While the content of both betas will be the same, the open beta is also a server stress test. This means that players may encounter some technical issues, but it also means that Blizzard Entertainment is gathering important data to ensure a smooth launch for the full game.
Diablo 4 Early Access Details
If you want to get in on the action early, you can pre-order the premium edition or higher to gain access to the closed beta. Pre-ordering also gives you early access to the game itself, so you can start playing on day one.
The Diablo 4 Open Beta is just around the corner, and it’s an exciting time for fans of the series. The betas give players a chance to get a taste of the adventure to come, as well as helping Blizzard Entertainment ensure a smooth launch for the full game.
