Diablo 4 Beta Known Issues Listed; Includes Inaccurate Queue Times and Performance Problems

diablo 4 character customization

The Diablo 4 beta launched a couple of days ago, but not without some notable issues affecting players. From poor performance on older hardware to voice chat problems, many players participating in the beta have reported these issues to Blizzard, and the company seems to be aware of them. 

A recent post by Community Manager PezRadar over on the Blizzard forums lists all the known issues from the beta. Here are all the issues as of March 19, 2:30 PM ET.

Diablo 4 Beta K Known Issues as of March 19:

  • If the player triggers the Lorath introduction cutscene while the world is in daylight, the player’s and Lorath’s shadows will shimmer in-game until the Prologue is complete. This issue will not occur if the player skips the cutscene.
  • In-game voice chat may not function correctly for all players.
  • Performance optimizations are still in progress. Players may encounter some performance issues, particularly on older hardware across different platforms.
  • The ‘Play’ tab at the top of Character Selection is clickable but currently does not lead to another menu in the beta.
  • Users may experience a queue while logging into Diablo IV during Early Access Beta Weekend. Please note that the countdown may finish and go beyond the duration listed on the queue timer. Do NOT leave the queue as this will restart the queue. We will have more accurate timers in place for Open Beta Weekend.
  • During the beta players will be able to select from a wide variety of work-in-progress “Text Language” options beyond English. English will be the only available option for “Spoken Language” during the beta, but other languages will be available at launch.
  • Player 2 may experience issues joining games with a pre-existing hero while playing couch co-op during the Prologue.
  • Players playing Hardcore in local couch co-op on console may not be able to return to character select until both players die. This will be addressed at launch.

At the very least, Blizzard appears to be aware of the beta issues and has mentioned them outright. We’ll have to wait and see if the launch version of the game will address all of Diablo 4’s known issues.
