Part of the Open Beta Weekend? Please Read!

  • First off, welcome to the beta! : D

    As you may have noticed, those of you who are playing as part of the open beta weekend and who do not actually have a Diablo III Beta License on your Account cannot actually post on this technical forum.

    While we apologize for this inconvenience, you'll likely find the resolution to your issue (assuming there is one; it is beta after all) on this forum's numerous sticky posts or on our Beta Bug Report forum.

    Additionally, make sure to check out our Diablo III Support section on

    Finally, please be advised that the sheer number of people trying to access this weekend's beta will likely cause all manner of server performance issues, especially since the beta builds are not optimized.

    With all of that said, we hope that most of you will get a chance to enjoy a sneak-peak into the world of Sanctuary. Happy demon slaying!


    To access the Open Beta, please follow these instructions:
    • Log in or create a account at
    • Create your BattleTag™, which is required to play Diablo III (What is BattleTag?)
    Download the game client, install, and play between 12:01 p.m. PDT April 20 and 10:00 a.m. PDT April 23

    When installing the client, please allow the installation to fully complete (100%) before beginning play. Attempting to play while the data is still in the "yellow" range can cause serious issues.
