During IGN Fan Fest 2023, Blizzard Entertainment announced the open beta dates for Diablo 4. It runs from March 24th to 26th, with those who pre-purchase receiving early access from March 17th to 19th. The opening cinematic for the beta was also revealed – check it out below. This cinematic is one of many that players will see in the beta and features their custom character.
In a new article, the developer confirmed that the open beta would be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. Players will explore the Prologue and Act 1, which includes the first zone, Fractured Peaks. The level cap is 25, but characters can continue playing until the open beta concludes.
It doesn’t represent the final experience, and performance issues, outages and other issues may arise. Following the conclusion of the open beta, Blizzard will evaluate the feedback and “make changes as needed.” For those who receive a beta early access code, head here to redeem it or log in to your Battle.net account. Those who pre-purchase will have it automatically available with no additional actions required.
Diablo 4 launches on June 6th. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
