Can you still play the Diablo 4 beta is a question that has been regularly asked since the previous open beta session ended in March, as players wanted to get another fix of demon slaying and dungeon crawling. Having been previously let loose in a large section of Diablo 4, it's understandable that people will want more without having to wait months for the full and final release. The good news is that you'll soon be able to access the Diablo 4 beta one final time thanks to the Server Slam event, even though it previously looked unlikely that any more open beta sessions would be available. If you want to know if you can still play the Diablo 4 beta, then here's what's currently happening.

Will there be another Diablo 4 open beta?

Yes, there will be another Diablo 4 open beta, as Blizzard have confirmed a final Server Slam session from Friday May 12 to Sunday May 14, 2023. This will offer up players another chance to try the game out in advance of its release in early June, while also providing Blizzard data on server limitations, technical issues, and various other data about the game's functionality. The last beta generated a lot of interest and many wanted another one before the full release, so it's not clear if this is for a more technical study for the developers or just a bone thrown to the fans – possibly both.

After that, assuming another beta isn't announced, the earliest time you can play Diablo 4 again will be on June 2, 2023, if you pre-order the Digital Deluxe or Ultimate Edition of the game, otherwise you can purchase and play the Standard Edition from June 6.
