Diablo 4 Open Beta Patch Will Fix World Boss Spawn, Improve Queue Times

The open beta goes live at 9 AM PDT on March 24th and ends at noon PDT on March 27th, with early downloads now available.

Ahead of its open beta for Diablo 4, technically its second beta weekend, Blizzard Entertainment has detailed a client patch that will go live. It contains several fixes for issues like Ashava’s spawn timer, which has been changed to 10 AM/12 PM/10 PM PDT on March 25th and midnight PDT on March 26th.

Other issues, like the queue timer not displaying a time, a progression blocker for the “In Her Wake” quest, and players with 16 GB RAM unable to select High Texture Settings, are also fixed. Queue times should be improved, and there should be fewer crashes overall.

Of course, this is still a beta, so other issues may crop up, especially since the server load will likely be higher. The open beta starts on March 24th at 9 AM PDT and ends on March 27th at noon PDT. It’s available to pre-download now on all platforms.

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