Late last year, Blizzard revealed the official launch date for Diablo IV on June 6th, 2023. Then last month, it announced official dates for the highly anticipated Diablo IV Early Access and Open Beta.

For those who already have Diablo IV on pre-order, you’ll be able to test the game first on all platforms from Saturday, March 18th at 3AM AEDT through to Tuesday, March 21st at 6AM AEDT. The following weekend, an open beta will be available for everyone from Saturday March 25th at 3AM AEDT through Tuesday, March 28th at 6AM AEDT

You can read the full FAQ right here, but we wanted to share one of the most important details – how to get in and download the beta client ahead of time so that you’re ready to go right away.

Here it is, straight from the gaping maw of the fiery underworld:

Prepare yourself for the descent into Hell by downloading the Diablo IV Beta early.
