With just hours to go before the start of early access to the open “beta” of Blizzard Entertainment’s fantasy RPG Diablo IV, someone has arranged a demonstration of a trial version of the game on Twitch.
According to forum user fainas1337 Redditthe broadcast took place a few days ago, and its recording (available at this shortcut and in the video below) is of low quality and loud music in the background.
Apparently, the Chinese player showed viewers of his stream 36 minutes of high-level Diablo IV gameplay. Using a level 100 character, the player cleared several locations and defeated (and more than once) the final boss of the “Beta”.
In the video you can see Diablo IV’s interface (almost all in Chinese), an in-game map, inventory, pump abilities and gear, and literally millions of units of damage that a high-level hero can inflict on enemies.
Apparently, the player was showing off a build of Diablo IV from the days of the closed “beta,” where Blizzard allowed attendees to try high-level content in the fall of 2022. This explains several unfinished locations in the video.
In the meantime, the Diablo IV open beta begins today, March 17 (12:00 UTC) for those who pre-ordered the game (or otherwise obtained the code), and March 24 (also 19:00 UTC). 00 UTC) different for everyone.
Diablo IV is expected to premiere on June 6th, 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S. At launch, the game will gain support for NVIDIA DLSS 3 and Reflex technologies, and ray tracing will be added in a post-release patch.
