We've got a surprise addition to the Xbox Free Play Days lineup! It's been announced today that a special 10-hour free trial for Diablo 4 will be available from October 19-22 for all Xbox members - even non-Game Pass subscribers!

The news was confirmed on the official Xbox Wire blog earlier today with the following message:

"Additionally, Diablo IV is free for all Xbox members from October 19 until October 22 (Game Pass Core / Game Pass Ultimate not required) with a 10-hour gameplay trial."

This might have actually been revealed a little too early, as we're not seeing an option to download the Diablo 4 trial as of yet. When it becomes available, you should see it on the game's Xbox Store page.

Update: It's now live on the Xbox Store! Here's how to download the Diablo 4 free trial on Xbox:

  1. Go to the Microsoft Store app on your Xbox console
  2. Press the Y button and then search for "Diablo IV"
  3. Pick any version of the game (Standard, Ultimate, etc)
  4. Scroll down to "In This Bundle" and choose "Diablo IV"
  5. You should now see a button saying "Free Trial, Download Now"

We're expecting Diablo 4 to hit Xbox Game Pass at some point as well, but Blizzard has stated it won't be until at least 2024. So, if you're wondering whether it's worth a purchase in the meantime, this is a great way to find out!
