PSA: You Can Now Delete The Diablo 4 Beta & Server Slam Files

You don't have to worry about keeping the Diablo 4 Open Beta or Server Slam test files on your gaming device.
PSA: You Can Now Delete The Diablo 4 Beta & Server Slam Files

Following successful betas and a Server Slam test meant to break the servers (it did not), prospective Nephalem is waiting for Lilith to return to Sanctuary with the release of Diablo 4 officially.

We are all very excited following the test phases and feel that Diablo 4 is a dark return to form for Blizzard's iconic ARPG franchise.  

Delete Diablo 4 Beta/Test Files With Peace of Mind

The Server Slam test for Diablo 4 takes up a lot of SSD/HDD space on your device. From our experience, it weighed in at roughly 74 GB. The good news is that, yes, you can delete these files, as you will need an entirely new installation for the launch of Diablo 4. Take this as a public service announcement!

The Global Community Development Director, Adam Fletcher, took to Twitter recently to explain that many fans have been asking. Still, there is no reason to keep the Diablo 4 Server Slam files on your gaming device.

Yes, those on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox should probably clear up that space, as there is no advantage in not deleting these test files. 

There will be a preload for Diablo 4 sometime before 2 June 2023, as confirmed by Adam Fletcher in the same Twitter thread.

While you wait for Diablo 4's launch on 2 June (early access) or the standard release of 6 June 2023, why not check out a new video from the developers to brush up on the story so far?

The TL;DR version of this is that you shouldn't worry about keeping the Diablo 4 beta test files on your gaming device, as they take up a lot of space and are now useless.
