When is the Diablo 4 Server Slam open beta weekend?

Test Sanctuary out again!

Following two successful Diablo IV beta weekends in March, Blizzard announced that there would be a third, final beta for players to jump into before the game launches on June 6. Here's everything you need to know about the Diablo 4 Server Slam open beta, including dates, unlocks, and more.

Diablo 4 Server Slam open beta weekend date and time

The Diablo IV Server Slam is taking place on the weekend of May 12-14, 2023, meaning you have three days to explore Sanctuary once more before release day on June 6 (June 1 if you purchase the Ultimate or Deluxe editions).

It starts on Friday, May 12 at 12pm PDT and ends on Sunday, May 14 at 12pm PDT, giving you exactly 48 hours to grind the Server Slam.

How to access the Diablo 4 Server Slam open beta weekend

While one of the previous Diablo IV betas was closed, players will be happy to know that the Server Slam is an open beta, meaning anyone can download and play.

To access the beta, head to the Diablo 4 store page on your platform of choice (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, PC) starting May 10 at 12pm PDT. Then search "Diablo 4 Server Slam," and it will pop up. Click on it, then select Download and wait for it to install.

What is included in the Diablo 4 Server Slam open beta weekend?

Like the previous two betas, you'll explore Fractured Peaks with one of the five classes in Diablo 4: Barbarian, Sorceress, Rogue, Necromancer, and Druid. All of the previous beta content returns, though Blizzard has made several tweaks to gameplay since the last beta, including character buffs and nerfs, changes to pets, and dungeon reformats.

The Server Slam includes the opportunity to earn the beta-exclusive Wolf Pack cosmetic and titles once again for those who missed out, which is done by reaching level 20 with a character.

Ashava, the Diablo IV beta World Boss, returns, and players can earn the beta-exclusive Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy by beating it once they've reached level 20.
