During IGN Fan Fest, Blizzard announced that it will offer Diablo IV fans the opportunity to play the highly anticipated action RPG before its scheduled release on June 6th. Similar to its approach with Diablo II: Resurrected, the studio will host an early access weekend for players who have pre-ordered the game. This early access period will occur from March 17th to March 19th. Following that, the open beta will start on March 24th and will be accessible to everyone.

During the Early Access and Open Beta periods, players will be restricted to leveling their character up to Level 25. However, they will still have the opportunity to battle against demons and progress through the game until the Open Beta concludes. Players can explore the world of Sanctuary, defeat the devilish monsters lurking in the dungeons, fulfill quests offered by the locals, and gather valuable loot from fallen enemies, all while making their mark on the game.
The previews for Diablo IV will be accessible on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Each preview version will provide access to the same quantity of content, including the game’s prologue and first act. Blizzard intends to reveal further details about the open beta for Diablo IV in a live stream scheduled to air on February 28th.
