The release of Diablo 4 is almost here after years of hints and information leaks. Since it was first announced in November 2019 along with a terrifying short film, By Three They Come, that revealed Diablo 4’s main antagonist, Lilith – the Daughter of Hatred, a reference to Lord of Hatred Mephisto, and one of the two beings who created Sanctuary, fans have been eagerly anticipating this fourth installment in the venerable ARPG series.
Through many beta tests and a server slam weekend when players may experience The Fractured Peaks and Act I, a large portion of Diablo 4’s plot and gameplay have already been made public.
The whole game will be released shortly, and those who pre-ordered this harsh return to Diablo will receive it even sooner. Even though these early access builds of the game are no longer available, they will be available again soon.
Diablo 4 Release Time
Fans of Diablo 4 who pre-ordered the game will get access to a limited beta test build from March 17–March 19, 2023. This game’s beta version was made available to all interested players the following weekend, from March 24 to 26, whether or not they had already purchased Diablo 4.
Then, from May 12 to May 14, the last beta test was released as part of a test of Blizzard’s servers and their capacity to handle a significant flood of players at once — after all, Diablo 3 had a rather rough launch.
Regarding Diablo 4’s actual release date, Blizzard appears to be following a similar strategy in that pre-ordered gamers get access to the game before those who wait until it is released. Any ardent follower of the ARPG series should not miss this significant early access period.
On June 5, 2023, Diablo 4 will be available to users who did not pre-order it on all supported platforms (PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Series X|S).
It should go live on June 6 at midnight in the UK and approximately 4 p.m. PDT/6 p.m. EST in the United States. Pre-loading won’t be an option for players who wait until the game is released to buy it.

Pre-Order Early Access
On June 1, 2023, players who pre-order Diablo 4 will get exclusive access to the game five days before everyone else. Along with the usual assortment of digital goodies, pre-ordering the game allows you to download it a few days before Diablo 4 goes on sale.
As a result, players will have more time on the event day to max out their characters and search for Lilith throughout all of the game’s Acts.
