Without them, you will only need 41 gigabytes to download.
The Diablo 4 beta preload for pre-order players has been released by Blizzard. On PC, the beta distribution weighs over 85 gigabytes, but it turns out that it may be reduced by about half.
A beta test participant is required to download a distribution kit with a set of HD textures by default; the effect of these textures is only noticeable at 4K resolution.
The Battle.net launcher allows you to refuse to download the HD texture pack, as they discovered by the journalists of the German edition of GameStar. The corresponding option must be enabled at the very beginning of the installation process, even before the download.
If you eliminate high-resolution textures, then you will only need 41+ gigabytes of data to download.
The Diablo 4 beta test for pre-orders will take place from March 17 to March 19. The second phase of testing will take place on March 24-26, and everyone will be able to take part in it.
By the way, if you get to level 20 in the beta, you will receive a unique customization item: a spinning top, which your character may wear on his back.
Diablo 4 will be released on PC and consoles of two generations on June 6, 2023. Diablo 4 will be released on PCs and consoles of two generations on June 6, 2023.
