But, what do you need to know if you want to play the Diablo 4 Server Slam? This article will take you through when it is, what you will be able to play, and what rewards you can get for playing. There is even an exclusive reward for the most hardcore of players.
Diablo 4 Server Slam
The Diablo 4 Server Slam is a test period for the game that will run from May 12 – May 14 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. This will be free for anyone who wants to play and the goal is to stress test the servers and see how they can handle tons of players trying to jump in.
You can expect a lot of issues with the servers being open to everyone. So, expect a lot of servers down errors for Diablo 4, and a whole lot of Diablo 4 error codes. But, this is a bonus weekend if things work right and is not meant to be a proper chance for players to experience the game, unlike the original betas.
Diablo 4 Server Slam content
The content that was available during the previous Diablo 4 beta will be available in the Server Slam. However the Diablo 4 beta World Boss, Ashava will appear more frequently, every 3 hours allowing you nine tries to try and kill her.
All five of the Diablo 4 classes will be playable and you can complete all the quests and dungeons that were previously live during the Beta. There won’t be any new locations on the Diablo 4 map, with players just able to explore the Fractured Peaks.
Diablo 4 Server Slam rewards
During the Diablo 4 Server Slam, you will be able to earn the Cry of Ashava mount trophy by defeating Ashava with a level 20 character. The Beta Wolf Pack, Early Voyager title, and Initial Casualty title can also be earned.
There won’t be any unique rewards for just playing the Diablo 4 Server Slam and if you have already earned the rest of these, except the trophy, you don’t need to play again.
