Blizzard has finally announced its Open Beta plans for the highly anticipated Diablo IV, with two beta periods planned. First, Early Access to the Open Beta will be available for those that have pre-purchased the game on the weekend of March 17-19, with the free-for-all Open Beta running over the weekend of March 24–26.

Best of all the Open Beta will be available on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4.

In terms of content, as per our recent hands-on with a preview build, players will have access to the entirety of Act I, including the cinematic prologue. Similar to how Diablo 3's Beta was an Act I affair, the difference here is that in Diablo IV, the Act I zone of Fractured Peaks is massive, open, and chock full of side quests and optional dungeons to discover.

Character level will be capped at Level 25, though players will be able to continue to play until the Open Beta period ends. Interestingly, the Diablo IV team has noted that it plans to make changes to the game based on the feedback it received.

"Make your mark on Sanctuary by clearing hellish hordes from dungeons, completing intriguing quests provided by the locals, and amassing powerful loot from fallen foes," writes Blizzard. "Simply put, this is your opportunity to combat the might of the Burning Hells prior to our June 6 release. With that said, the experience is not finalized and you may encounter performance issues, outages, and come across things that simply don’t work. After the Open Beta concludes, we’ll evaluate all feedback we’ve received and will make changes as needed. We look forward to you experiencing this small taste of what Diablo IV has to offer."

If you've pre-purcahesed the game digitally "Early Access to the Open Beta will be automatically available on the platform you pre-purchased for." For everyone that got a code, here's how to get Early Access.
  • Go to and log in or create your account.
  • Enter your code and select your gaming platform and region (if applicable) from the drop-down menu.
  • Be sure to check your selections before clicking the Redeem button.
  • A success page will confirm that your code was valid and claimed to the account.
  • For PC players, your account will be flagged for access right away.
  • For console players, a platform-specific code to download the Beta will be emailed to the address associated with your account closer to the start of Early Access.

  • Ahead of the Beta, Blizzard is set to debut a new Diablo IV live stream on February 28, lead world designer Art Peshkov, lead systems designer Meng Song, and game director Joe Shely on hand. This will stream via Twitch and YouTube.
