Diablo IV is shaping up to be one of the year’s most anticipated games. Developer Blizzard Entertainment has showcased some of the game’s most prominent features so far, like a diverse open world, customizable characters, and fully enabled cross-play.
We’ve known for a while that Blizzard’s latest dungeon crawler would have a closed beta for players who pre-ordered the game. However, during IGN’s Fan Fest 2023, the Diablo developer announced that an open beta would be playable for the public two months before the initial launch. With the game’s beta arriving in March, here is what to expect during the Diablo IV beta.
Diablo IV Beta: Classes, Zones And Levels
Blizzard Entertainment has announced the five playable classes in the game at launch: Barbarian, Necromancer, Rogue, Druid, and Sorceress. However, we don’t know if all five classes will be playable during the game’s beta, but we will know by March.
Once you get past the initial class selection and character customization, it’s time to explore the open world of Sanctuary. Diablo IV’s beta will allow players to play through the prologue and first act. However, while you can’t venture out to see Sanctuary in its entirety, you can explore the game’s first zone, Fractured Peaks.
The level cap in the beta will go up to level 25. However, Blizzard has confirmed that you can continue playing and exploring the zone at your leisure once you hit that cap.
When Can We Play The Beta?
For players pre-ordering the hellish dungeon crawler, you will gain access to the closed beta on March 17 and can play through to March 19. For others interested in the game but haven’t pre-ordered, the open beta will start on March 24 and end on March 26.
Diablo IV is releasing on June 6 and is available for PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
