When does the Diablo Immortal closed beta start?

The Diablo Immortal closed beta starts on October 29th at October 28th at 5 PM PDT.


Who can take part?

As Blizzard announced, only selected participants from Canada and Australia can take part in the closed beta of the mobile diablo. At a later date, users from South Korea, Japan and China will also be able to play in the closed beta.


Further regions are not mentioned for the time being. So it looks rather bad in this country with a participation in the closed beta.


In addition, the closed beta is currently only available to users with Android devices. iOS users cannot participate either.

Until when does the closed beta run?

According to the current status, the closed beta should run “less than three months”.


When will Diablo Immortal be released?

Blizzard did not initially name a specific date. Only the period was named: “We want to release Diablo Immortal in the first half of 2022” (via Blizzard ). The release was postponed in the summer.


Until then, players can test the new content from the closed beta - at least if they live in one of the participating regions.


Diablo Immortal: Closed Beta shows new class

This class is included: In the closed beta, players can try out the “necromancer”. It is one of the six playable classes that will be available in Diablo Immortal when the game is released.


Necromancers rely on the walking dead whom they can call for help. The dead can be used to contaminate enemies and thus decimate the enemy hordes.

The Necromancer is part of the closed beta.

PvP and PvE content in closed beta

PvP content: Diablo Immortal will offer the so-called “cycle of conflict” in which players come together in “dark houses” and compete with other houses.


One innovation is the “Challenge of the Immortal”, in which 30 players (the shadows) compete against a single one (the immortal).


There is also a new battlefield ranking in which you can compare yourself with other players.

PvE content: The closed beta will show the “Reliquary of Hell”. There you will meet bosses who are designed for groups of eight players and there will be weekly changing tasks. If you can do that, you get access to bigger challenges with better rewards.


There are various activities for this:


  • Bounties
  • Elder Portals
  • Dungeons

With these activities you can collect XP for your Battle Pass.


Controller support in Diablo Immortal

Diablo Immortal should offer full controller support - but this goal has not yet been fully achieved, according to the developers. In the closed beta, however, there should be a first glimpse.


  • Players can then use a controller to move their characters and fight opponents.
  • However, it is not possible to control menus and the like. This must first be done with the touchscreen.

The following controllers are supported:


  • Xbox One Wireless Controller
  • Xbox Wireless Controller
  • Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2
  • Xbox Adaptive Controller
  • DUALSHOCK®4 Wireless-Controller
  • Razer Kishi

What else does the closed beta bring?

The closed beta offers these features:

  • There is a new equipment system with set items for secondary equipment slots. If you have several set items, there are bonuses.
  • Those who face higher-level opponents or reach high Paragon levels get better rewards.
  • The Code's user interface has been improved to be clearer with tutorials and goals.
  • There will be optional in-game purchases. What players buy during the closed beta will then be credited as in-game credit - the closed beta progress will be deleted.
However, according to the current status, it will not be possible to try out these features in this country - at least not in the closed beta.
