Diablo 4’s private end-game beta for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One consoles are coming shortly, according to the latest blog post from developer Blizzard. Since Blizzard wants to keep Diablo 4’s story a secret and since the end-game is the most anticipated part of the game for many players, it has decided to center the beta on that portion of the game.

We’re thrilled to report that we’ll shortly be starting a new testing period as we work towards releasing Diablo 4 next year, said Diablo franchise manager Rod Fergusson in a video update. It was a closed beta for the endgame, including everything that happened beyond the main storyline.

For those curious about the game’s endgame content, the blog describes various different modes, such as PvP, Nightmare Dungeons, Whispers of the Dead, and Helltide. The locations where PvP takes place are known as Fields of Hatred, and they got their name since they are said to be under Mephisto’s curse. In Whispers of the Dead, players will have to consult a Tree of Whispers for guidance on how to proceed with various missions. After 10 jobs are completed, players will receive stuff as a reward.

After acquiring your first Nightmare Sigil, you’ll have access to Nightmare Dungeons, which are harder than normal dungeons but provide better loot. Finally, after completing World Tier 3 on the Nightmare difficulty setting, a new region-wide event called Helltide will become available to you. In addition to being larger and more powerful, enemies also drop improved loot. They also drop Cinders, which are used to unlock Helltide Chests, which contain even more rewards.
