Wait 2 hours, play 15 minutes: the Diablo IV beta does not make everyone happy
This weekend, some players were able to enter the infernal universe of Diablo IV.
Finally, provided you have been able to overcome a sometimes endless queue to access the game’s servers…
Diablo IV beta still open for a few hours
After (very) long years of waiting, players around the world have finally been able to glimpse the gates of Hell open again, with the release of the Diablo IV beta this weekend. Formalized in 2019, Diablo IV will become reality on June 6th. In the meantime, it’s a closed beta to which players who have pre-ordered the game are invited to participate.
Thus, all weekend (and until tonight 8 p.m.), many players were able to start browsing this new installment in the Diablo saga, born on PC in 1997. And if you were not one of the lucky ones elected officials, do not panic, a second beta, open this time, is scheduled from this Friday, March 24, until Sunday evening.
Endless wait times for Diablo IV
However, if the players were at the very least impatient to discover this new Diablo IV, many of them had to take their troubles patiently, the fault of an endless queuing system… EngadgetIgor Bonifacic thus indicates that he had to wait two hours before being able to launch the game… the latter having been the victim of a disconnection barely 15 minutes later.
Ditto on the side of Jason Schreier, whose pop-up indicated an estimated waiting time of 95 minutes to join the game.
On its official forums, Blizzard quickly reacted by indicating: “ The team is working on some issues that have affected players and disconnected them from the servers. This allows us to provide stability for players entering the game after the queuing process. »
The studio also wanted to confirm that a new, more accurate countdown timer will be in place by the start of the open beta next weekend, to allow anyone who wants to try Diablo IV in the best conditions.
Already on Sunday, various players indicated that they had been able to access the game after only a handful of minutes. Obviously, we hope that all the problems inherent in Diablo IV will be resolved when the game is launched, firmly set (hopefully) on June 6th.
And you, were you able to test the closed beta of Diablo IV this weekend?
