Diablo 4 early unlock times detailed

Time to go rogue.

Blizzard has detailed when Diablo 4 owners will be able to get playing early - if they have either of the game's Digital Deluxe or Ultimate editions.

Diablo 4 officially launches on Tuesday 6th June, but those who pay more can get playing ahead of time - and now we know exactly how early.

Blizzard boss Mike Ybarra has confirmed the early access launch window for Deluxe and Ultimate pre-orders will begin at midnight in the UK on the 2nd June, which is 4pm Pacific on the 1st June in the US. That's across PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
