Diablo 4 Open Beta Contains a List of Current Issues and Fixes

For the open beta of Diablo 4, Blizzard provides a list of ongoing technical issues and fixes, as well as a queue wait time update.

The ongoing open beta for Diablo 4 has a list of significant ongoing technical issues, which Blizzard has also shared along with any real-time fixes. The beta is still scheduled for early June, when Diablo 4 will be released in its entirety, so some frustrating technical issues are to be expected. After all, Diablo 4 is still undergoing development and has several more months to go. To help players avoid issues as they progress through Diablo 4's early story, Blizzard is doing its best to remain open and honest about these issues.

The Diablo 4 player base was aware of technical issues, of course. This past weekend's Diablo 4 early access beta also had its fair share of issues, with Blizzard providing players with similar updates on the major problems and fixes. While not all issues were resolved, Blizzard did significantly improve some troublesome areas. Broken queue timers were fixed, server disconnects were reduced, and numerous other minor issues were addressed.

The pattern set by Blizzard during the early access beta for Diablo 4 has continued in the open beta. On the official Diablo 4 forums of Blizzard, a list of ongoing major issues has been made public. There were identified three main areas of interest. The first and most important is a pattern in which players frequently disconnect from Diablo 4 and are subsequently unable to reconnect. This is linked to other errors, according to Blizzard, including party errors and Diablo 4 network performance problems. So it appears unlikely that it will be resolved during the open beta.

The other two problems Blizzard listed in its thread are more specific and less serious than the first. One of them is that when PC players alt-tab while the game is running in Fullscreen mode, the game may crash. The second is known as general issues with in-game voice dialogue. Both of these issues have fixes from Blizzard. However, switching to Windowed Fullscreen mode and English dialogue should prevent these technical issues from happening for those who want to be safe.

Additionally, Blizzard reminds us that queue times can be expected over the weekend, and that they will vary depending on the time of day in each region. However, a fix was released on Friday to enhance queue times, so it is hoped that players will experience minimal or no queue times. Additionally, Blizzard mentions potential server outages, though none have been confirmed to date.

The Diablo 4 open beta will continue until Monday at noon and is still the only way to play the game before its June release. In the end, the game is still in beta, and Blizzard is gathering information and user reviews to improve it before launch. Although unfortunate, the technical problems are to be expected and understood. As a result, Diablo 4 ought to be a better game when it debuts.

Diablo 4 releases June 6 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
