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:
- Go to the Microsoft Store app on your Xbox console
- Press the Y button and then search for "Diablo IV"
- Pick any version of the game (Standard, Ultimate, etc)
- Scroll down to "In This Bundle" and choose "Diablo IV"
- 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!
