Alpha, Beta & Demo for Diablo 4 provides with the latest information revealed about the playable pre-release versions of the game. In this page, players can find more about the new systems, locations, items, enemies and more that are currently available.

There are two upcoming Betas for Diablo 4. One is accessed by preordering the game, and is available March 17th through 19th. The second one is available to all from March 24th to 26th.


What’s in the Diablo 4 Open Beta?

The open beta contains the Prologue and the whole of Act 1. This means players can explore the first area, Fractured Peaks. There will be some limitations to character progress, as you will only be able to level to 25. Once you cap you can still go ahead and hunt down demons to your heart’s content but won’t be able to level more. The beta will include dungeons, quests and of course plenty of loot.

  • Full Prologue
  • Full Act 1
  • Fractured Peaks area
  • Character Level up to 25
  • Classes
  • Weapons
  • Armor
  • Progress DOES NOT carry to the full game, but it DOES carry from Early Access to Open Beta.

This will be your first opportunity to fight the Burning Hells before Diablo 4’s official launch on June 6th. However, this won’t be the full experience as the devs will be testing a number of different areas. So be weary that you may run into performance issues, outages and some features that may not work yet. This will be your chance to give feedback on the game and the team will take it into consideration.

How to Redeem Your Early Access Beta Code

If you have a Beta Early Access code, you can redeem it via the website diablo.com/beta and log in/create a Battle.net account. If you pre-purchase Diablo 4 you will automatically have access to the Early Access Beta.

For PC players, your account will be flagged for access straight away, while consoles players will need a platform-specific code to download the Beta. This will be emailed to your address that is connected to your Battle.net account.

Open Beta Guide for Diablo 4

Open Beta Focus

During both the Open Beta and Early Access weekends, players will be able to intimately explore the early game of Diablo 4. This includes a first taste of the campaign via the Prologue and the entirety of Act 1. The first zone, Fractured Peaks, is yours to navigate as you please—stampede through the rugged landscape and cut down demons.

For the Open Beta and Early Access weekends, your character can only level up to Level 25, but you’re welcome to continue ripping through demons until the Open Beta ends. Make your mark on Sanctuary by clearing hellish hordes from dungeons, completing intriguing quests provided by the locals, and amassing powerful loot from fallen foes.

Simply put, this is your opportunity to combat the might of the Burning Hells prior to our June 6 release. With that said, the experience is not finalized and you may encounter performance issues, outages, and come across things that simply don’t work. After the Open Beta concludes, we’ll evaluate all feedback we’ve received and will make changes as needed. We look forward to you experiencing this small taste of what Diablo 4 has to offer.

Open Beta Content

Players can dicover the Fractured Peaks, one of the regions available in Diablo 4, as well as face Ashava, the whirlwind of Pestilence.

The Fractured Peaks

he Fractured Peaks in Diablo IV is a treacherous land filled with demons and danger, but it's also a place where heroes are made. This unforgiving landscape is home to craggy steppes and snow-laden pathways, presenting challenges and opportunities for adventurers who are brave enough to explore it.

Kyovashad, the city nestled among the mountains, is a safe zone where players can repair and purchase new gear, upgrade their health potion, access the Stash, and much more. It serves as a base of operations for players to rest and resupply before heading out into the wilderness.

The Main Questline of Diablo IV is rich and consists of multiple Acts. Players can look for Main Questline markers on their map to begin their pursuit of Lilith, the main antagonist of the game. But that's not all. Fractured Peaks is also home to numerous Side Quests, such as the Woodsman of Nevesk Side Quest and one of the nearby Altars of Lilith. Finding these Altars provides a permanent boost to the Core Stats of all characters on the Eternal Realm.

While exploring the snow-laden wilderness, players may come across World and Legion Events. World Events are small experiences that arise at random within the zone, requiring players to complete tasks such as escorting a lost soul to its loved one or satiating the hunger of bloodthirsty obelisks. These events can usually be completed within a couple of minutes and always provide a reward for players' heroics.

In contrast, Legion Events are longer experiences meant to challenge players. These events will usually be marked on the map but can sometimes be revealed after conquering a Stronghold. Players must ensure they are prepared to face hordes of demons before entering these events, and if possible, take them on with the aid of other players. Completing a Legion Event will reward players handsomely for their efforts.

Dungeons are a cornerstone of the Diablo universe, and Diablo IV has no shortage of them to explore. Dungeons and their recommended levels to complete are displayed on the map, and players can test their skills and determination against whatever hell they discover within. These instances are tight and tense, making them a great place to rack up useful gear for even more threatening encounters, such as world bosses.

In conclusion, the Fractured Peaks in Diablo IV is a harsh yet rewarding place to explore. From the safety of Kyovashad to the challenges of World and Legion Events, players can forge their legend and prepare themselves for the battles to come. Are you ready to take on the demons of the Fractured Peaks?

Ashava, the Whirlwind of Pestilence

ashava boss diablo4 fextralife wiki guide 565px

Ashava is one of the most daunting challenges you'll encounter in the Fractured Peaks of Diablo IV. This colossal plague bearer is feared for her enormous forearm blades, which can slice through both stone and flesh with ease, as well as her ability to coat the ground in a lethal poison.

While Ashava is undoubtedly a formidable opponent, tales of her weakness have been passed down through the ages. Unfortunately, much of this information has been lost to the corrosion of time. Still, some believe that a group of skilled adventurers may be able to discover the key to defeating her.

One thing is certain: You won't be able to take down Ashava alone. You'll need to recruit other players and gather your most powerful gear to stand a chance against her. Even then, the battle will be intense and grueling.

If you're brave enough to face Ashava, you can expect a generous reward for your efforts. Take her down, and you'll earn a significant loot drop that will be the envy of all your fellow wanderers.

Here’s when you’ll have an opportunity to combat Ashava during the Open Beta and Early Access weekends:

  • March 18 at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 10 p.m. and midnight PDT
  • March 25 at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 10 p.m. and midnight PDT


Open Beta Rewards

Playing the open Beta will grant players three new rewards once the full game releases. 

It wouldn’t be a trip to Sanctuary without earning a cache of unique rewards along the way. As you play Diablo IV during the Open Beta and Early Access weekends, showcase your wanderer’s prowess by collecting all three Open Beta rewards. Players who unlock these rewards will receive them once Diablo IV launches.

Both Open Beta and Early access date and time can be seen here:

  • Early Access to the Open Beta begins March 17 at 9 a.m. PDT and concludes March 20 at 12 p.m. PDT.
  • The Open Beta begins March 24 at 9 a.m. PDT and concludes March 27 at 12 p.m. PDT.

There are three rewards to be earned:

  • Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item: earned by reaching Level 20 on one character.
