You'll need just over 82GB free on your storage device to download the Diablo 4 open beta, so make sure to finish up any large games if you need to clear some space.
Those who have already downloaded the Diablo 4 beta during its early access period (last weekend for those who preordered) will not need to download the beta again. You'll simply be able to hop straight in when the beta opens again on Friday.
Diablo 4 open beta details
The Diablo 4 open beta includes the Prologue and all of Act 1, in which you'll explore the Fractured Peaks.
However, it's worth noting that no progress will carry over to the full game. When the Diablo 4 open beta ends, your progress will delete automatically.
The open beta will include all five classes: Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Rogue, and Sorcerer.
The Druid and Necromancer were not previously available in the early access beta period, so they're new additions for everyone to try during the open beta weekend.
Since this is just a taste of Diablo 4, the maximum level cap for the open beta is level 25. You will not be able to progress past level 25, but you can reach the level cap on all five classes if you wish.
Throughout the open beta, you can complete main quests, side quests, tackle world events, and conquer Strongholds with up to three other players in online co-op. There are also plenty of dungeons to explore, in typical Diablo fashion.
Those seeking the best loot can test their mettle against a powerful world boss known as Ashava.
Diablo 4 open beta rewards
There are three rewards to earn during the Diablo 4 open beta, each with specific milestones that you'll need to reach over the weekend.
Below, you'll find a full list of Diablo 4 open beta rewards and learn how to earn them all:
- Initial Casualty Title: Reach Kyovashad with one character.
- Early Voyager Title: Reach level 20 with one character.
- Beta Wolf Pack cosmetic: Reach level 20 with one character.
The Beta Wolf Pack cosmetic is clearly the best of the bunch, granting you a backpack within which there is an animated sleeping wolf pup. It's very cute.
Unlike your character progression and other gear, all three beta rewards will carry into the full game. Make sure to earn them now so that you can laud the Beta Wolf Pack cosmetic over others when Diablo 4 launches fully on June 6.
That wraps up our guide on the Diablo 4 open beta release time. Get ready to slay some demons, and we'll see you in the Fractured Peaks - assuming that the early access beta server woes don't crop up again.
