Diablo 4 Early Access Beta Concludes, Open Beta Begins on March 24

The Early Access Open Beta may be over, but Diablo fans can return to Fractured Peaks this Friday, March 24.

Diablo 4’s Early Access beta has officially come to a close. It’s been a fun three days of battling enemies, leveling up the Rogue, Barbarian, and Sorcerer classes, and exploring all there is to offer in Fractured Peaks. Diablo fans still have another week of beta ahead, though. The Diablo 4 Open Beta — open to all players, regardless of whether or not they own the game — begins on March 24 and lasts throughout the weekend.

Diablo 4 Open Beta Schedule

Diablo 4 Open Beta begins on March 24 at 9 a.m. PDT and ends on March 27 at 12 p.m. PDT. The beta is open for all to try and features all five playable characters in Diablo 4: Druid, Necromancer, Sorcerer, Rogue, and Barbarian. 

Progress from the Early Access beta carries forward to the Open Beta, so players who were busy grinding this past weekend can continue their journey this Friday. The level cap remains the same, and there will be another day of World Boss spawns, so players can experience Ashava first-hand (watch out for that poison damage).

The level cap in the Diablo 4 Open Beta remains Level 25, and players can have a total of 10 characters per Battle.net account. All content remains the same at the time of writing, which includes Act 1 in Fractured Peaks, 23 Dungeons, 3 Strongholds, and several Altars of Lilith to discover. 

Diablo 4 features co-op and controller support, and console players are in for a nice surprise because this game feels great on a controller — and that’s not something I’d ever imagine saying as a PC gamer with thousands of hours in Diablo 2 and 3. 

So get ready to explore Fractured Peaks and make your way to the city of Kyovashad in the Diablo 4 Open Beta. In the meantime, check out our Diablo 4 section for guides and walkthroughs to familiarize yourself with the game.
