Features for the Open Beta

You’ll get access to the prologue, and the first act of Diablo IV set in a region called Fractured Peaks. Additionally, there will be a World Boss that will appear throughout the weekend. Blizzard has said these fights will be hard to beat and require other players to fight together. There are also going to be two multiplayer options to play in Diablo IV‘s Open Beta: local two-player co-op, or four-player online co-op. All players need is a account if they are doing an online session.

The Early Access beta will only have three classes: Barbarian, Rouge, and Sorcerer. The following Open Beta on March 24 will have access to the whole roster including the Necromancer and the Druid class. If you’re playing the Early Access beta, the progress will carry over to the Open Beta. When the full game releases in June, you’ll have to restart as your character gets deleted after the final weekend.
