Diablo IV will be up there with one of my most anticipated games of 2023. The game will feature cross-platform play and progression on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4/5, plus couch co-op on consoles at launch on June 6, 2023. Last week we were graced with the introduction cinematic which gives more of a glimpse into the dark world we’ll be playing in but doesn’t give too much away which is great. Further to this, we have dates for an upcoming Early Access and Open Beta Weekend.
Beginning in March, players in most regions will be able to experience Diablo IV during two Beta weekends available on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. For those that pre-ordered Diablo IV, Early Access to the Open Beta will be from 18 March – 20 March and code redemption is live now. On the following weekend, the Open Beta Weekend will be available to everyone from 25 March – 27 March.
In previous tests, the focus was on all aspects of Diablo IV’s endgame which I avoided as I don’t want any spoilers to ruin the levelling experience. For the upcoming Open Beta weekends, players will be able to experience a deep look into the early game including the Prologue and the entirety of Act 1 with a level cap of 25. More information will be shared about the specifics of the Open Beta in the coming weeks. I am pretty damn excited to jump into Diablo IV. Diablo Immortal was an acceptable Diablo experience but lacked the immersion we had when playing the story of Diablo III in those early days of 2012.
Keep up to date with all things Diablo IV over at the official website and bring on June 6!
