Diablo 4 Beta Patch Notes (March 21)

The Diablo beta patch notes addresses a variety of crash-related issues, improves queue times, and fixed the World Boss timer.

Even though Diablo 4 is still in its open beta phase, it doesn’t mean that the game’s developers, Blizzard Entertainment, aren’t already making improvements. With this comes new Diablo 4 Beta patch notes, which rolled out on March 21, 2023. If you need to know about all the changes in Sanctuary and want to know what the team learned over the Early Access Beta period, take a look at the patch notes below.

The most notable change is a fix to Ashava’s spawn timer, which was an issue in the last Beta period. But, more importantly, Blizzard fixed various crash-related issues and addressed some issues that should improve queue times. And speaking of queues, the timer while in the queue should now be more accurate.

ICYMI: the Diablo 4 Open Beta starts on March 24, 2023, at 9 a.m. PDT and ends on March 27, 2023, at 12 p.m. PDT. You can start preloading the game, so you don’t have to wait in “unprecedented queues.”
