What we thought of the Diablo 4 early access beta
The doors to Diablo 4 finally flew wide open this past weekend, ahead of the game's release in a couple of months' time, and more than a million people stampeded through. The purpose was to test Diablo 4 under load and after a rocky start, the game and service held up. Whether it'll hold up again when the doors open even wider this weekend, for the open beta, we'll have to wait and see.
But the other purpose was to show everyone first-hand what Blizzard had been cooking up and to see what everyone thinks of it, and as with players, a wide range of opinions flooded in. Here, I gather a couple of them from within Eurogamer, from senior guides writer Jessica Orr - who's a Diablo 3 regular - and guides writer Marie Pritchard, who comes to Diablo for the first time. What did they think? And with it, what did you think - was it what you were hoping for?
