Diablo 4 closed beta pre-registration is now open
Blizzard has quietly opened pre-registrations for a Diablo 4 closed beta, allowing players to opt-in for a shot at the closed beta when testing starts. To do so, all you need to do is head to the Diablo 4 website and click a little "Pre-Register" button, then log in to your battle.net account for a chance to get picked as a tester. As of now, no date has been announced for the closed beta.
It's the first we've heard about someone outside of Blizzard actually playing Diablo 4 in a bit, but does track with the suspected release date of 2023. For more on that, check out everything we know about Diablo 4. (opens in new tab)
It's a pretty low-key announcement for what should be one of Blizzard's tentpole series, but the Diablo brand name has been tarnished by association with Diablo Immortal. The recently released mobile game has attracted massive backlash due to its microtransactions (opens in new tab), many of which can be described as predatory at best.
