[Update]: Diablo 4 has now finally arrived, and while there are some notable issues, it's pretty good fun.

If you're excited about Diablo 4 and you've somehow missed the previous beta, you're in luck because Blizzard has now launched one last public test - the Server Slam! There is unfortunately a bit of time pressure with this one as the event will only be running until May 14th on PC, Xbox and PlayStation.

In terms of content, the Server Slam will let you play through the prologue and the entirety of Act 1, with the limit being that you can't go past level 20. This is still a fairly sizable amount of content, so you should be able to get a pretty good impression of Diablo 4's gameplay and hopefully decide whether the game is actually worth your time and money.

Naturally, since this is a beta, your characters and progress will not carry over to the launch version. That said, there's a couple of achievements you can do that will grant you cosmetic items that will be yours to keep for good. Here's a quick rundown of what they are and what they offer:

Initial Casualty Title: earned by reaching Kyovashad with one character.
Early Voyager Title: earned by reaching Level 20 on one character.
Beta Wolf Pack Cosmetic Item: earned by reaching Level 20 on one character.
Cry of Ashava Mount Trophy: earned by defeating Ashava with one Level 20 character.

That's pretty much everything you need to know about the Server Slam before diving in, but if you're interested in a few more tidbits of information, you can find what you seek over at the Diablo 4 website. Enjoy, and I'll leave you with the intro cinematic to help set the mood:
