Blizzard is giving players a second chance to try out Diablo IV before it comes out for real. The game’s Server Slam will give console and PC players 48 hours to explore the prologue and Act I while the distributor prepares its infrastructure for the highly anticipated June 6th launch of the dungeon crawler.
The Server Slam will run from 12 p.m. PDT on May 12 to 12 p.m. PDT on May 14. Players on Windows PC, PS5/PS4, Xbox Series X/S, or Xbox One will be able to join. You can play as any of the five character classes, such as Barbarian, Druid, Sorcerer, Rogue, or Necromancer, during the event. It will allow couch co-op, cross-play, and cross-progression.
During the two-day event, you can only level up your character to Level 20. After that, you won’t get any more Ability Points, but you can still get new stuff. Also, if you played the game during Early Access or Open Beta, your progress won’t carry over to Server Slam, and progress from Server Slam won’t move over to the game’s launch.
Do you remember Gary Bowser, the famous Nintendo hacker? He was sentenced to over three years in prison and fined close to $15 million for his role in Team Xecutor, a company that allowed Switch owners to hack their devices to play pirated games…
People who played Diablo IV during its early access and open test were so interested in it that they can’t wait for it to come out. Many people who played the open test of Diablo IV loved the game’s gameplay.
The continuous updates released by Tech Ballad have also informed us about it, the site covers not only Diablo IV but also a wide variety of other technologies and games that are very popular among gamers.
As you may already know, Blizzard has prepared a challenging boss encounter for those taking part in Server Slam: Ashava, “one of the Burning Hells’ most fowl machinations.”
The monster with “two razor-sharp arm blades, scales stronger than plate mail, and hell-bent on ripping through all who interrupt her quest to bathe Sanctuary in poisonous bile” should be a formidable battle for Level 20 and lesser players. But whoever kἰlls her will get the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy, which will stay with them until the final launch.
Also, you’ll have another chance to get the awards from the first two beta weekends, like the Initial Casualty Title (requires one character to reach Kyovashad), the Early Voyager Title, and the Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item (both require one character to reach Level 20).
Server Slam pre-downloads will start on May 10 at 12 PM PDT, two days before the event. If you enjoyed reading about how Blizzard will give you another chance to try out “Diablo IV” before its June release, then you should follow us on Twitter to get notified whenever we publish similar content.
