Early Access Beta VS Open Beta Diablo 4

The difference between Diablo 4’s Early Access beta and Open beta is fairly simple. Permission for Early Acces beta will be given to those who pre-purchased the game, while on the date of Open beta, everyone would be allowed in to try and play Diablo 4.

Players that go through these beta releases will be able to play through the Prologue and Act 1 of Diablo 4 in the map called Fractured Peaks. If you join on March 17-19 you will be able to play only 3 classes – Barbarian, Rogue, and the Sorcerer, while the Open beta on March 24-26 will have the additional Druid and Necromancer classes.

Even though it’s only a Beta release, you will be able to fight against some bosses and get rewards. Diablo Developers noted that anyone who reaches level 20 will earn a Beta Wolf pack and more rewards when the game launches.
