Diablo 4 error codes are a persistent problem in the early days of Blizzard's new action-RPG, as hundreds of thousands of players attempt to enter Sanctuary all at once. So if you're seeing error code 300202 or 30008 just know you aren't alone – it's the servers trying to rightside themselves due to heavy pressure. 

Naturally, there's a few other error codes in Diablo 4 that some of you are beginning to experience. Below you'll find every error code that has been reported so far, along with some advice which can help you get back into Diablo 4 so that you can get back to battling the Prime Evils! 

What's key to understand is that Diablo 4 error codes are likely to be an uncommon occurrence, owing to the fact that the game is entirely server-based and needs constant access to the internet in order to maintain the game world – there's always a risk that large traffic spikes could push the always-online game's servers beyond their limit. So with that in mind, keep scrolling to find information on how you can fix error codes in Diablo 4

Diablo 4 error code 300202

The Diablo 4 error code 300202 appears when the servers are going through particularly busy periods – it's likely you're seeing this around the launch of the game. If you're spotting this error you'll need to either rejoin the queue to enter Sanctuary or close the game entirely before attempting to log back in. 

Diablo 4 error code 30008

Diablo 4 error code 30008 is a "request timeout error" and directly corresponds to how busy the servers are. If you're encountering this error, it's typically met with you being locked out of the game and pushed back to the start menu. If you're experiencing this, you'll want to shut down the game and try reloading it – and if you're playing on PC, it wouldn't hurt to reload Battle.Net as well. You should be able to log back in once you reboot the game. 

Diablo 4 error code 315306

"Unable to find a valid license for Diablo IV. (Code 315306)"

If you're seeing Diablo 4 error code 315306, then it usually means that you're trying to access the game too early and the servers are not available yet, hence the game is unable to validate your license to connect with the online service. This could also appear if you're trying to log in during the Early Access period but haven't purchased a version of the game that gets you in at this time. The best fix for this error is to be patient and try again later, and while some players have reported success by deleting and reinstalling the game, we wouldn't recommend that unless you have a very fast internet connection as the install size is huge.

Diablo 4 error code 316005

Diablo 4 error code 316005 only appears if there are no available character slots available on your account. Diablo 4 will let you create 10 characters, so if you're seeing this error message you will need to manually delete one of your characters before the game will let you create a brand new one. 

Diablo 4 error code 316719

"There was an error. (Code 316719)"

Diablo 4 error code 316719 means that your connection to the servers has been lost, which is often preceded by a warning in the top left corner of your screen that the game is attempting to re-establish connection to the servers. Usually this is not due to a problem at your end, but rather a result of heavy server strain leading to disconnection. The only way to fix this is to log off from the main menu or restart the game, both of which will put you back into the queue for login, but hopefully it shouldn't take long to get you reconnected.

Diablo 4 error code 395002

"Your account is currently locked. Please wait a few minutes and try again. (Code 395002)"

If you see this Diablo 4 error code then don't panic, as although it sounds bad this is most likely a misattributed issue due to server congestion. If you aren't able to reconnect within a few minutes, then try logging off from the main menu or restarting the game, and the problem should resolve itself or at least move on to a different error code. If you are continually being told your account is locked, you may need to contact Blizzard support for further assistance.

Diablo 4 error code 396022

Typically appearing with a message indicating that there is a "server ping issue", if you're seeing Diablo 4 error code 396022 it means that the servers are experiencing instability. If you're struggling to get past the queue with this error message, shut down Diablo 4 entirely (rather than suspending it) and then attempt to log back in. If the issue persists, it may be worth checking that your Internet connection isn't being throttled by another device on the network. 

Diablo 4 error code 34200 / 34202

"Game servers are not available. Please try again later. (Code 34200 / 34202)"

This Diablo 4 error code means that the servers are currently offline, or are otherwise inaccessible. Now we've reached the full game launch window this error shouldn't be seen any more, but if it does appear then there could be a wider server outage and you should check online for any announcements from Blizzard regarding this.

Diablo 4 error code 34203

Diablo 4 error code 34203 typically appears after attempting to log into the game. If you're seeing this code it's likely an issue with your Battle.Net account not being correctly authenticated. Your best bet is to shut the game down entirely and then to try reloading the game to attempt a fresh log-in.  

Diablo 4 error code 401003

Diablo 4 error code 401003 will usually appear off of the back of a Network Disconnect of any type. If you're seeing this, your only option is to reboot the game and, if you're on PC, Battle.Net as well. Basically, persistence is key to circumvent this particular issue.
