Diablo 4 Update Patch Notes For Open Beta
Following the Early Access beta, Blizzard has deployed some fixes for the Diablo 4 Open Beta and shared them via the game's first official patch notes. Before we get to the bug fixes, take a look at what Community Manager PezRadar had to say, including thanking the community and a reminder about the nature of the beta and testing.
First, we want to thank the wonderful community for jumping into our Early Access Beta this past weekend. We have been combing through all the feedback and will continue to do so through the Open Beta to capture and address notes from players before launch.
We do want to remind players that this is a beta and with that we are testing numerous things from our server load to the gameplay through Act I. This test and your feedback will help us as we head into launch for Diablo IV in June. We greatly appreciate your patience and help to make the best possible experience for all players at launch.
Now, to the latest Diablo 4 patch notes featuring several bug fixes for the Open Beta.
Diablo 4 Latest Patch Notes:
