How to pre-register for the Diablo 4 closed beta

We still have a long way to wait for the eventual Diablo 4, and while we did get a decent playing game to hold us over with Diablo Immortal, the heavy monetization aspects were far from what fans wanted from a Diablo experience. The next true sequel after Diablo 3 has always been Diablo 4, obviously, though delays have pushed the game further and further into the future.

What You Need

  • Battle.net account

While we still don't know when Diablo 4 will release, that hasn't stopped fans from uncovering an unadvertised option to pre-register for the game's beta. For whatever reason, Blizzard hasn't officially announced this feature yet, but there's never any harm in jumping in early to hopefully secure your spot to play this upcoming action RPG as soon as possible. While it is simple to do, you will need to know how to pre-register for the Diablo 4 closed beta since there are no official instructions just yet.

When is the Diablo 4 beta?

The reason Blizzard made a formal announcement about this pre-registration is likely due to the fact that we don't know when any Diablo 4 betas will happen. However, the fact that the option is up and functional heavily implies that they will at least announce beta periods soon, if not launch them shortly after as well.

Doing a factory reset wipes your personal data so the device is ready for someone else to use, and it can also be useful for fixing problems with the PS4.

We got a lot of retro announcements during Thursday's Limited Run Games showcase, and the last one is set to bring back a retro gaming icon in Bubsy in: The Purrfect Collection.
