As you know, it was not only Rockstar that suffered a troublesome leak in the past few days, but also Blizzard. But the exciting news for Diablo IV isn't just of the unofficial kind, as they also gave us more information about upcoming beta tests.
First of all, testing a very important part of the game, namely the end game - i.e. what you do after you've run through the plot and reached max level. In order to make the game's end game as good as possible, they will invite players to a closed beta test (from which they are not allowed to share anything), which will include Helltide, Nightmare Dungeons, Whispers of the Dead, Fields of Hatred and Paragon Boards. More info about these activities here .
Which then gets to participate in this closed beta test? Blizzard will go by game data and select players who have recently spent a lot of time with the end game in Diablo II: Resurrected , Diablo III , and Diablo Immortal . In order to be invited, you also seem to have to log into your Battle.net account and click that you want to receive "News and Special Offers from Battle.net" in the communication settings.
The closed beta will own on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Playstation 4/5 this year. If you are not selected, however, you do not need to despair, because open beta tests will also be held at the beginning of next year.
