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.

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.

DIABLO 4 Rogue Campfire

Discovering and perfecting the build you want for your character is basically the whole point of Diablo 4, and it can take quite a lot of time and effort to nail down all of the specifics.

Luckily, Diablo 4 makes this pretty easy, allowing you to respec more or less whenever you'd like and as often as you'd like – provided you've got the coin available to do so. Let's take a look at how to respec your character.
How to respec in Diablo 4
Diablo 4 makes it extremely simple to respec your character's skills, meaning you can play around with various playstyles on the fly. Simply head into your skill tree, then press Square (PlayStation), X (Xbox), or right-click (PC) to prompt a full reset.

Alternatively, you can head to a single skill you'd like to remove a point from and hold down the corresponding button to refund one point at a time from that skill.

Diablo 4 is no doubt a dark and sinister game full of death and destruction – but that shouldn't stop you from wanting to be in touch with your emotions. When you're ready to share how you're feeling or want to convey a need to a fellow player, you'll want to use the game's emote system. We'll tell you how it all works below and give you some tips for how to make the most of this mechanic.
How to use emotes in Diablo 4
You can bring up the emote wheel by pressing E on your keyboard or Up on the D-pad of a controller, at which point you can select which emote you'd like to perform from a pre-selected group. If you'd like to change the emotes on your wheel, though, you can select Customize, then choose one from the currently unapplied emotes and place it wherever you'd like for future use.

Some very helpful emotes to keep on your wheel include "Help", "Yes", "Thanks", and "Wave", as these are easy ways to show a general sense of friendliness to your fellow demon slayers. Of course, if you're in the mood to be a bit more antagonistic – particularly in PVP – you can always use "Taunt" to give folks a hard time.
