How to use Diablo 4 beta?
Pre-ordering Diablo 4 grants you early access to the beta. Each pre-order grants instant access to the beta, regardless of the edition purchased.
To participate in a somewhat strange cooperation, American residents who purchase a Double Down burger from KFC before the offer closes on March 18 will receive a coupon for early access to the test.
If you haven’t gotten early access, you won’t be able to play the beta until the second weekend, which begins this coming Friday, March 24.
