Blizzard Entertainment has recently announced the Diablo IV Closed End Game Beta.
Diablo IV Closed End Game Beta for Select Few
The Closed End Game Beta will be one of the first chances for select players to try out Diablo IV and what it has to offer. Players who will be invited to this Closed Beta will be based on specific gameplay data.
Invited Players Cannot Disclose Gameplay Data
This Closed Beta will be confidential too, which means the players that have been invited will not be able to talk publicly about or share their gameplay experience. Aside from that, the Closed End Game Beta will be playable on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S with cross-play and cross-progress features available. This will be happening this coming November 18, 2022.
Focus on Post-Campaign Sanctuary Gameplay
Interestingly, this Closed Beta will include post-campaign Sanctuary gameplay. Blizzard wants to ensure that gameplay after the campaign will be satisfying, have tons of challenges to enjoy, and many more gaming sessions. This is the reason for inviting only select players in order to collect community feedback early to integrate into the full game before it launches. Those who are selected to join the Closed Beta can give feedback between fights through an in-game feedback tool.
Areas to Try Out
The Closed End Game Beta will include the following areas: Helltide, Nightmare Dungeons, Whispers of the Dead, Fields of Hatred, and Paragon Boards.
Blizzard will be using gameplay data to invite a limited number of Diablo players who have recently spent a lot of time playing previous games like Diablo II Resurrected, Diablo III, and Diablo Immortal. Players who are confident that they can get invited can check out their accounts and see if they got the notification.
Diablo IV launches sometime next year on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
