Diablo 4: Open Beta and Early Access Guide

Learn all you need to know about the Open Beta and Early Access Guide of Diablo 4.

Diablo 4, the fourth installment of the Diablo series, is eagerly anticipated by fans, and for a good reason. It promises to return the dark, gothic atmosphere that made the franchise famous in the first place, as well as updated gameplay and mechanics.

Set many years after the events of Diablo 3, the game sees the return of the iconic character Lilith, who has emerged from the shadows to wreak havoc on the world. Moreover, from sprawling cities to desolate wastelands, the game’s world is vast and varied, with plenty of secrets to discover and challenges to overcome.

The open beta and early access to Diablo 4 will allow fans to get a sneak peek of the game before its official release. In this guide, we’ll look at how to get Diablo 4 early access and what to expect from the open beta. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

How to Get Early Access

Early Access is not guaranteed!

Starting with a piece of straightforward news, note that early access isn’t guaranteed for anyone, even those who pre-order. However, Blizzard has been known to grant early beta access to some players who have signed up for their mailing list. To increase your chances of being granted early access, sign up for Blizzard’s mailing list and watch out for any updates regarding Diablo 4.

Now, those who will pre-purchase will receive (potentially) Early Access to the Open Beta from March 17–19. On the following weekend, the Open Beta will be available to everyone from March 24–26.

Pre-Order

Pre-ordering Diablo 4 will give you access to the early beta (increase your chance!) and other bonuses and perks. The game is currently available for pre-order on various platforms, including Blizzard’s official website, Amazon, and other major retailers. There are different versions of the game available for pre-order, including the Standard, Deluxe, and Ultimate edition. Each version comes with its own set of bonuses and rewards, so be sure to choose the one that best fits your budget.

Moreover, players who pre-order the game will receive a unique cosmetic item. The pre-order bonus has yet to be announced, but it’s likely to be something unique and exciting.

Pricing

The Standard edition of Diablo 4 will cost $69.99. The Deluxe edition is available for $89.99. It includes several extras such as cosmetic items, a pet, and other bonuses. And you can get your hand on the Ultimate edition for $99.99.

Additionally, players can opt to purchase the Collector’s edition, starting at $199.99, which comes with a range of physical items alongside the game itself. Keep in mind that prices are subject to change based on the retailer you purchase from.

Things Beta Includes

The beta version of Diablo 4 will include a few key features and content. These are the following features:

  • Three playable classes: the Sorceress, the Druids, and the Barbarian
  • A portion of the open world to explore
  • Access to the first Two Acts of the campaign
  • Multiplayer functionality in Sacrifice mode

Beta Rewards

Players who participate in the Diablo 4 beta can earn rewards and bonuses for their participation. These rewards will carry over to the full game when it is released. Some of the rewards include cosmetic items, such as unique armor sets, mounts, and pets. Players who reach certain milestones in the beta will also receive special rewards, such as exclusive titles and emotes.

It is already quite obvious that Diablo 4 is shaping up to be an incredible addition to the franchise. Moreover, the open beta and early access will allow fans to experience the game before its official release, and compared to the other newly released games, the pricing is reasonable. Not to mention the rewards players will receive with unique in-game items. So, be prepared!

And that is all I had for the Early access to the Open Beta of Diablo IV. The Darkness awaits!
