Will Diablo 4 Server Slam beta progress carry over to the full game?
Best answer: No, gameplay progression in the Diablo 4 beta and Server Slam (that means character levels, earned loot, and story progress) will not carry over to the full game. However, beta players can earn certain rewards that will carry over to the full game.
What is the Diablo 4 Server Slam beta?
The Diablo 4 Open Beta was a large vertical slice of the full experience that's coming later this year on June 6, 2023. It included both the Prologue and Act 1 of the story, and allowed players to level a character up to Level 25. The beta took place in the Fractured Peaks area, and players were able to team up with each other to take down a world boss called Ashava there.
The early access run of the Open Beta that ran from March 17-20 was exclusive to fans that purchased a Diablo 4 preorder. The second run of the Open Beta that was llive between March 24-27, though, was available for everyone on Diablo 4's platforms to install for free. The Diablo 4 Server Slam, which is essentially a second run of the Open Beta, is live from May 12-14 and is largely the same (though the level cap has been reduced from 25 to 20).
What will carry over from the Diablo 4 beta?
While character levels, acquired loot, and story progress won't carry over to the full Diablo 4 experience, you can earn some rewards in the beta that will. These include the following titles and items:
- Players that reach Kyovashad in the beta will be rewarded with the “Initial Casualty” title.
- Players will get the “Early Voyager” title for reaching Level 20 in the beta.
- Reaching Level 20 will also get you the "Beta Wolf Pack" cosmetic, which is a decorative item your character can wear on their back (shown in the image above).
- Defeating Ashava the Pestilent at Level 20 rewards the Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy (Server Slam only).
While none of these will give you a head start with progression when Diablo 4 releases in full, they will show others that you've been playing the game since the beta days and that you have lots of experience. For those that like to show off, chasing these rewards down will be worth the effort.
Diablo 4 is slated to fully launch on June 6, 2023. It has the potential to be one of the best Xbox games for fans of dungeon crawlers and hack-and-slash combat, and we can't wait to jump into the full experience.
