However, players should be aware of some known issues that may affect gameplay during this time.d4 open beta known issues

Here are some known issues to keep in mind:

  1. Shimmering Shadows

If the player triggers the Lorath introduction cutscene while the world is in daylight, both the player’s and Lorath’s shadows will shimmer in-game until the Prologue is complete. Skipping the cutscene will avoid this issue.

  1. Voice Chat Issues

In-game voice chat may not function correctly for all players, which can impact gameplay for those who rely on communication.

  1. Performance Optimization

Performance optimizations are still in progress, so players may experience some performance issues, particularly on older hardware across different platforms.

  1. Play Tab Issue

The ‘Play’ tab at the top of Character Selection is currently clickable but does not lead to another menu in the beta.

  1. Queue Issues

Users may experience a queue while logging into Diablo IV during Early Access Beta Weekend. It’s important not to leave the queue, as this will restart it. More accurate timers will be in place for Open Beta Weekend.

  1. Text and Spoken Language Options

During the beta, players will be able to select from a wide variety of work-in-progress “Text Language” options beyond English. However, English will be the only available option for “Spoken Language” during the beta, although other languages will be available at launch.


The Diablo IV Open Beta is eagerly anticipated by gamers around the world, but players should be aware of some known issues that may affect gameplay during the Early Access and Open Beta periods. The issues range from shimmering shadows during cutscenes to voice chat problems and performance issues. By being aware of these issues, players can prepare themselves for the Open Beta and enjoy the game to the fullest when it is released.
