The Diablo 4 beta has been far from perfect so far. While many players were able to dive into the dark fantasy RPG’s early access beta and get a taste of its first act, the initial release was plagued with long wait times and players were kicked out. of the game, as well as performance issues on some hardware stores. Blizzard is listing some of the known Diablo 4 bugs and issues that it is actively working on as the beta continues.
Diablo Community Manager Adam “PezRadar” Fletcher thanks players for their “overwhelming response to the Early Access Beta Weekend” and lists some of the most common issues the team is currently striving for. to resolve. He notes that the team is working overnight and indicates that further updates will be provided “no later than (Saturday) tomorrow (PDT)” on the Blizzard Forums.
The Early Access Beta is available to players who have pre-ordered the game and allows them to choose between three of the Diablo 4 classes available in the full game. Players can reach level 25 and will earn an adorable sleeping cub in a backpack for reaching level 20 on at least one character. An Open Beta weekend will follow from March 24-26, with progress carried over and the remaining classes also available.
Diablo 4 Beta Known Issues
Here are the Diablo 4 beta bugs currently acknowledged by Blizzard:
- Players are sometimes unable to party with other players during gameplay.
- Players who are removed from a game receive an error stating that their group does not exist.
- Rubber bands are produced with players when transitioning between areas.
- High RAM and GPU usage on selected hardware.
- If the player activates the Lorath intro cutscene while the world is in daylight, both the player and Lorath’s shadows will glow in-game until the prologue is complete. This issue will not occur if the player skips the stage.
- In-game voice chat may not work well for all players.
- Performance optimizations are still in progress. Players may experience performance issues, especially on older hardware across different platforms.
- The “Play” tab at the top of the character select is clickable, but it does not currently lead to another menu in beta.
- Users may experience a queue when logging into Diablo IV during the Early Access Beta weekend. Note that the countdown may end and exceed the duration indicated on the queue timer. DO NOT leave the queue as this will reset the queue.
- During the beta, players will be able to choose from a wide variety of ongoing “Text Language” options beyond English. English will be the only option available for “Spoken Language” during the beta, but other languages will be available at launch.
Fletcher says Blizzard also continues to manage the flow of players into the game through the use of queues. He notes, “Many players have successfully logged into the game, but we are aware that some have experienced longer wait times than expected.”
While my initial queue at launch was around 90 minutes, I was able to connect with only a brief 1-2 minute wait later Friday night. However, this is likely to fluctuate during peak hours, so keep that in mind if you’re looking to play.
