Over three years after it was first revealed, preorders are now live for Blizzard Entertainment's next big role-playing game.

Diablo 4 is on the way, and as development continues, preorder appeared online early before full orders then went live later in the day, allowing players to know what they're getting when they reserve their copy of the fourth mainline entry in this iconic franchise. Lilith, mother of demons, has returned to Sanctuary. Meanwhile, Heaven has fallen silent and the angels are not assisting mankind as it is battered by monsters and calamity. 

This dark adventure appears to be everything longtime fans could want, bringing in the aesthetic of Diablo 2 and marrying it to evolved gameplay with more advanced controls. Here's everything you need to know about preordering Diablo 4. 

Diablo 4: Every edition and where to preorder

Why you can trust Windows Central Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

There are three different versions of Diablo 4 that you can preorder, with a Standard Edition, Deluxe Edition, Ultimate Edition. There's also a Collector's Edition box that doesn't actually include a copy of the game. We'll be updating this guide as different retailer listings go live, so check back frequently.

It's worth noting that Diablo 4 supports Smart Delivery on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox, as well as a free upgrade on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. So if you're getting the console version, don't worry if you're still on a last-generation console, as you'll get a current-generation version later on at no additional cost.

Diablo 4 preorders: Standard edition

The standard edition of Diablo 4 is $70 and comes with a couple of extras but is heavily stripped down compared to the other, more expensive versions of the game.
Preordering will still net some bonuses, however, as any preorders of Diablo 4 will grant early access to open betas, as well as the Light Bearer Mount for Diablo 4.

Diablo 4 preorders: When do I get my bonuses?

Once you've preordered a particular version of the game, you can expect your digital bonuses to start showing up across Blizzard Entertainment games at different times. We've marked the differences for each digital bonus, so pay close attention and note how you preordered the game:

  • Inarius Wings and Inarius Murloc Pet for Diablo 3 -  You'll get these as early as Dec. 9, 2022. Please note that it will be on the same platform you preordered Diablo 4 on, so make sure you're picking up Diablo 4 where you play Diablo 3 as well. 
  • Amalgam of Rage Mount for World of Warcraft - If you preordered Diablo 4 through Battle.net, this will be added to your account starting Dec. 9, 2022. If you preorder the game through Xbox or PlayStation, it'll be added once Diablo 4 launches, which is currently set for June 6, 2023.
  • Umber Winged Darkness Cosmetic Set for Diablo Immortal - If you preorder Diablo 4 through Battle.net, you'll get this as early as Dec. 14, 2022. If you preorder through Xbox or PlayStation, you'll have to wait until Diablo 4's release date. Unlike the other two bonuses above, this will have to be manually redeemed on your Diablo Immortal account, no matter how you preordered.

With the official announcement at The Game Awards 2022, Diablo 4 is currently scheduled to arrive on June 6, 2023, and it could easily be one of the best Xbox games of the year. This epic return to form is promising a massive game where players can customize their characters, grow more powerful, and slay hordes of monsters. 

Diablo 4 classes include classics like the Sorceress, Barbarian, and Necromancer, so returning players should feel right at home, while the game is still meant to appeal to new audiences as well. The new Skill system in Diablo 4 will allow players to build characters the way they want, with no restrictions.
