The first invitations for the new Diablo 4 beta in which the endgame can be tested have been sent out.

This is reported by fans on Reddit and ResetEra. A small group of people who have spent a lot of time in the endgame of Diablo 2: Resurrected, Diablo 3 and Diablo Immortal receive an invitation to test elements for after completing Diablo 4. These include Nightmare Dungeons, Whispers of the Dead, Fields of Hatred, Paragon Boards, and Helltide.

Blizzard explained last week why it focuses the new beta on endgame content. The company wants to keep the full story of the game a secret, and instead introduce players to content that becomes available afterwards. “For many, the endgame is also the favorite aspect of Diablo. We want to make sure that it is very satisfying and that there is no lack of varied challenges.”

The closed beta is playable for a number of people on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One. Cross-play and cross-progression are also available. Diablo 4 itself should be released sometime in 2023. Blizzard previously emphasized that the game will not be pay-to-win.
