Back to Basics
In just a few weeks, the open beta test for Diablo IV will begin. It is expected to be the last test before the launch, which is set for June 2nd. Only a lucky and select few were part of the closed beta that focused on the endgame content.
There are a couple of timeslots for the beta in March. From the 17th to the 20th, those with early access can play. Then on March 24th, anyone signed up can join and play until the 27th. Interested players will also be able to download it ahead of time.
Diablo IV is launching with five character classes; Barbarian, Necromancer, Sorcerer, Rogue, and Druid. However, the Necromancer and Druid will not be playable during the beta. You may already have a favorite class, but you might want to try them all while you can.
Sorcerer, Rogue, or Barbarian? Pick your poison.

Players can have up to ten characters to their Battle.net account, not that you probably need that many for the beta. Though all characters will be deleted when the game fully launches in June. You can also play Couch Co-op on consoles during the early access period, as long as one player as access.
There are also a few in-game prizes you can claim by playing the Diablo IV beta. If you reach Kyovashad with any character, you will get the Initial Casualty title. If you reach level 20, you get the Early Voyager title and Beta Wolf Pack cosmetic.
Diablo IV will be coming out on June 2nd for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
