Blizzard has provided more information about the Diablo 4 pre-order beta access and other bonus items that will be provided to players who pre-order the standard, digital deluxe, or ultimate edition of the hellish RPG game following confirmation of the Diablo 4 release date at The Game Awards 2022, which was accompanied by a rather spectacular performance of singer Halsey’s song “Lilith” to accompany the game’s demonic primary antagonist.
All pre-orders will get “early access to the open beta” – Blizzard hasn’t yet revealed exactly when this will take place yet, but says that the minimum duration of the beta will be two days, and that an internet connection will be required to play. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on any news about the Diablo 4 beta release date, so stay tuned to PCGamesN to find out when you’ll be able to get hands-on.
In addition to early open beta access, Blizzard says that all players who pre-purchase can also expect a Light Bearer Diablo 4 mount, as well as several rewards made available in other Blizzard games. Diablo 3 players will be given Inarius wings and an Inarius Murloc pet, which will be available from December 16 onwards; Diablo Immortal players get an Umber Winged Darkness cosmetic set, available from December 14; finally, a werewolf-like flying WoW mount called Amalgam of Rage will be available to players of the Blizzard MMORPG.
Those who opt for the middle-tier digital deluxe edition get all the above, along with two Diablo 4 mounts – Hellborn Carapace and Temptation – and an unlock for the first premium seasonal battle pass. You’ll also get “up to four days of early access to Diablo 4’s launch,” meaning you’ll be able to get a slight head-start on players who opted not to shell out.
Meanwhile, the most expensive option, the Diablo 4 ultimate edition, includes everything previously mentioned, along with the accelerated battle pass (giving you an automatic skip through the first 20 tiers and a bonus cosmetic), and the Wings of the Creator Diablo 4 emote. You’ll also get the same four days of early access as the digital deluxe edition.
Diablo 4 pre-order items – a showcase including several horse-like mounts, glowing white wings, and a wolf-like mount for World of Warcraft As for pricing, the Diablo 4 standard edition costs $69.99 USD / £59.99 GBP / €69.99 EUR.
