Blizzard has announced the “Server Slam” weekend for Diablo 4, due to run from May 12 to 14.
This will give fans one last chance to play the action role-playing game before it launches in early June. Any character progress made during Server Slam will not be carried over to launch.
Server Slam weekend begins on May 12 at 8pm UK time and ends on May 14 at 8pm UK time, and is available on Couch Co for consoles on PC, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Available with op. and cross-play and cross-progress for all platforms.
In a livestream, game director Joe Shelley asked players to “slam our servers”.
“We need as many people as possible to log in and watch Diablo 4 and play the game because we need to test our servers before launch,” Shelley said.
This Server Slam weekend offers players another chance to earn the rewards that were made available from previous betas. And, like the previous beta, this server slam weekend makes all classes available, sets the level cap at 20, lets you explore the first zone, Fractured Peaks, and walks through the prologue and out of the story. Acts as one.
But it will also include all the changes Blizzard has already made to Diablo 4 at launch, so expect the class balance changes the developer has already made. You’ll also see launch legendary drop rates instead of the inflated drop rates seen in previous betas.
Meanwhile, world boss Asha will spawn nine times throughout the weekend. If you defeat Ashwa during level 20, you will receive the Cry of Ashwa mount trophy for use in the end game.
