It's been a long road, but we're finally just months away from the long-awaited release of Diablo 4.
And as revealed today at IGN FanFest, we're getting a taste of gameplay even sooner.
Diablo 4 is getting an open beta next month, with pre-order early access buyers getting to play early on March 17 through 19, and the general public getting access March 24 through 26.
We learned this at IGN FanFest in an interview with game director Joe Shely, who also showed us the opening cinematic for Diablo 4, which you can watch below.
Custom characters will feature in Diablo 4's cinematics, of which there are apparently multiple in the beta alone to check out and even more across Diablo 4's 30+ hours of campaign and sidequests.
For early access pre-order owners, progress in the beta will transfer between the two beta weekends - so if you start on the 17th, you can play on that same file again March 24 through 26.
Diablo 4's full release is June 6, and it's coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. »
