If you’re sitting there waiting to download Diablo 4 Server Slam ahead of this isometric RPG’s launch, you’ll be pleased to know that you can actually download this latest taste of Diablo 4 a lot sooner than you think. In fact, the time to start your download is actually almost upon us. So, if you’re eager to play Blizzard’s upcoming epic, you’re going to want to make sure you’re clearing out some hard drive space as soon as possible.

Players can start to download Diablo 4 Server Slam from 12:00 PST / 15:00 EST / 20:00 BST on May 10. This will give you a couple of days lead time to get it downloaded ahead of the Diablo 4 Server Slam dates.

As explained by Blizzard in this Diablo 4 news post, you should be able to find the Diablo 4 Server Slam application on Xbox via the Xbox Store and PlayStation consoles via the PlayStation Store. All you need to do is search the term “Diablo 4 Server Slam”. On PC, through BattleNet, you should be able to find Diablo 4 in the “All Games” list. From there, you will need to select the “Server Slam” option under the Game Version menu.

As a free-to-play experience, Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus aren’t going to be required if you want to check Diablo 4 out on either one of these consoles – unless you’re in Germany, then you’ll need PS Plus. However, as you might imagine, when the full Diablo 4 release date rolls around, you’re going to need Xbox Live Gold and PS Plus to access most of this game’s multiplayer features.

Blizzard’s Diablo 4 Server Slam is, as the name suggests, a chance for the developer to stress test the RPG’s servers by opening them up to as many players as possible on as many platforms as possible. Everything available in the previous Diablo 4 beta will be available in the Server Slam – just, be prepared for some connection issues.

Still, all five of the available Diablo 4 classes will be open to players and you can explore the same are of the Diablo 4 map as you did before – if you played the beta. So, you should be able to focus much more on tackling the Diablo 4 beta World Boss and honing your build ahead of the full release. The Server Slam is only available for a couple of days, so keep that in mind if you’re making plans to play.

If you’re planning to pick up Diablo 4, you will be able to earn the Cry of Ashava mount trophy for defeating Ashava during Server Slam alongside being able to earn all the Diablo 4 beta rewards. So, if there’s any you missed, this would be the perfect time to jump in and grab them.

Is Diablo 4 going to be one of the best RPG games ever? It’s hard to say. However, it’s on-course to be one of the best Xbox RPG games out this year when it drops and we can imagine it’ll be one of the best PS5 RPG games available. We don’t know if it will stand the test of time just yet, but if older Diablo games are anything to go by, it will certainly give it a go.
