May 30 - Diablo 4 preload is set to go live in just a few short days on June 1.

Millions of Diablo fans worldwide are waiting for the Diablo 4 preload times. Players have waited three years for its release, and it's no surprise to see so many wanting to make sure they can drop into the action at the earliest possible moment.

Although preloading is a beneficial perk for fans who pre-purchased the game, it is not an option available in all video games. Let's dive deeper and find out if you can preload Diablo 4 early!

When are the Diablo 4 preload times?

Players will be able to preload Diablo 4 in the upcoming week on June 1, according to the Diablo website. Adam Fletcher, Global Community Development Director at Blizzard Entertainment, officially confirmed it on Twitter:

Also, players who pre-purchased the Ultimate and Digital Deluxe editions of Diablo 4 can play the game in early access the following week.

To get the preload option in Diablo 4, you must pre-order the game. At the time of writing, Diablo 4 is available in three editions: Standard, Digital Deluxe, and Ultimate, with the last one being the most beneficial.

Players who want to pre-order the game must visit the official Diablo 4 website. Here they can purchase the game for all platforms and discover the pros of doing it early.

Considering the Digital Deluxe and Ultimate editions have an Early Access option and the Premium Seasonal Battle Pass, these are the options worth buying if you want to play as soon as possible.


What is the Diablo 4 download size?

The only piece of information surrounding the Diablo 4 download size is that you'll need at least 45GB of hard drive space. If you want to save memory on Diablo 4, you can turn off High-Resolution Assets while preloading the game. It can free you from downloading several GB.
