Blizzard have announced that the Diablo IV Server Slam, giving players another chance to explore Sanctuary. Here's when it's set to start.

Players are being given another opportunity to try out Diablo IV ahead of its launch on June 6, 2023. Blizzard already rolled out two Beta weekends: an Early Access Beta weekend for those who pre-purchased Diablo IV, and an Open Beta weekend for everyone.

The two Betas saw waves of players jumping into Sanctuary, experiencing the five classes that will be available at launch: Barbarian, Sorcerer, Druid, Necromancer and Rogue. Blizzard has confirmed that all of the classes will be available once again during the Server Slam.

But there will be a few differences for those hopping into the game this time around. Namely, all of the bug fixes and feedback changes Blizzard received after the first round of Betas as detailed in the Open Beta Retrospective blog. In addition, Blizzard have made it a little bit harder to stumble across Legendary items during the Server Slam, altering the drop rates to be more reflective of what players will experience when the Diablo IV launches.

Like before, any character progress made during the Server Slam won't carry over to the game at launch. Similarly, character progress made during the Early Access and Open Beta weekends won't carry over to the Server Slam or main game, either.

When Does Diablo IV Server Slam Weekend Start and End?

Blizzard's upcoming Diablo IV Server Slam will begin on May 12, 12 p.m. PDT and run until May 14, 12 p.m. PDT. Players across Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 will be able to take part in the Server Slam.

World Boss Ashava will also be back for bold players to take down. She'll spawn on May 13 starting at 9 a.m. PDT and every 3 hours after that. Her final spawn will be on May 14 at 9 a.m. PDT.
