When does Diablo 4 early access start and when is the Diablo 4 UK start time are questions that are on all our lips here at Radio Times Gaming.


We can’t wait to get busy clearing dungeons of demons and trying out all the different classes. Fortunately, we can get ahead of the horde with Diablo 4 early access.

It’s just as well that we can - because any progress made during the betas won’t be carried over to launch. Any extra time to get our builds up to a higher level with our improved skills is a much-welcomed relief ahead of the new PvP mode.

If you want to go to hell as soon as possible, read on to find out how to get Diablo 4 early access.

Unfortunately, this is a Thursday night/Friday morning, but we're sure you’ll be able to slog through work on Friday - because it’s going to be worth it to get exploring the five gigantic regions of Sanctuary.

Would you really be able to sleep knowing Lilith has returned, anyway? The innocent inhabitants of Sanctuary will be at the mercy of the demon hordes and we doubt you’d be able to live with yourself if you snoozed through the slaughter.
