Blizzard Entertainment made a surprising reveal as they announced a gameplay trailer for Diablo 4, which will be arriving on PC and consoles in 2023. The announcement was made during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase, where they announced a new character class, the Necromancer, joining the game.
Eagle-eyed players will have seen that the publisher has officially opened the pre-registration following the showcase, where you'll stand a chance of gaining early access to the action RPG. We've detailed how players can start pre-registering for Diablo 4's Closed Beta and accept their fate.

This will direct you to the bottom of the page, or you can manually scroll down to find an image of Lilith, the game's main antagonist, enticing you to "accept your fate." Below the picture is another "Pre-register" button that clicking on it will redirect you to the Battle.net log-in page.
You can use your existing Battle.net account details, where submitting them will place you in a selection pool for a chance to be a tester for the Closed Beta. Similarly, you can also use your Google, Apple, or Facebook account to log in.

In pre-registering for the Closed Beta, you will receive the latest Diablo 4 news, updates, announcements, and special offers from the publisher. Similarly, they have yet to announce the official dates for the closed beta following its reveal during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on 12th June 2022.
Blizzard quietly opening pre-registrations for the Closed Beta is surprising for the publisher as they've been facing mounting criticisms and controversies over the last few months. Not only are they facing backlash due to the aggressive push of microtransactions in Diablo Immortal, but they're in the midst of an ongoing legal battle following allegations of sexual assault, discrimination, and harassment in the workplace.
