The early access open beta kicks off on Friday, March 17th, at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET / 4 pm GMT / 5 pm CET. It goes without saying, but you will not be able to start the game before that time. In addition, you will need to pre-order the game in order to have early access. If you have early access, and the time is right, and you still can’t start the Diablo 4 Beta, here’s what to do.

On PC, make sure to restart your client for it to register that the beta has started. If needed, log out first, and turn off the client. Turn it back on and then log back in with your account.

Open the drop-down menu below the “Game Version” (lower right corner) on the Diablo 4 page, and select the beta. You will now be able to start Diablo 4 Beta and play.
