The launch of Diablo 4 is quickly approaching, with the first beta weekend set to go live at noon ET on Friday, March 15. This weekend is only open for those who have pre-ordered or received a beta code. The following weekend, March 24-26, will be open for any and all players. As such, there will likely be hundreds of thousands of players jumping into Diablo 4 for the first time during one of the beta weekends. With this many players, some are bound to wonder if their beta progress in the Diablo 4 beta will transfer over when the full game launches.
It’s a mixed bag when it comes to beta progress transferring with other games. Titles such as Call of Duty do not allow players to keep their progress from the beta while other, smaller games tend to be more lenient. So, which way is Blizzard leaning with Diablo 4?
Diablo 4 beta progress transferring to the full game
Unfortunately for any players who were looking to get ahead, Diablo 4 will not allow players to transfer their beta progress to the full game. This was somewhat expected, but some fans held out hope that they could grind the beta in an effort to gain a headstart when Diablo 4 officially releases on June 6, 2023.
Although, players who take part in the first weekend’s beta will be able to transfer their progress to the second weekend. This means whatever players unlock from March 17-19 will still be there when they log back in on March 24. While this might not be the news players were hoping for, at least it allows players to have six full days of playtime with Diablo 4 using the same character(s).
If you’re planning to hop into the Diablo 4 beta, stay tuned for guides and news beginning on March 17.
