From October 26th (yes, yesterday) to October 30th, players can jump in through Battle.net and take on the fiery hordes of Hell for Halloween. Talk about stellar timing. There are a few more things you should know as well; here's more information related to the event.

  • Free trial players will have access to all Diablo IV content.
  • Once players have experienced Sanctuary, eager travelers can purchase Diablo IV for 25% off to celebrate the spooky season!
  • Progress carries over from the free trial if purchased. Social play and cross-play will also be available during the free trial.
