Is Diablo 4 on Game Pass?

Diablo 4 is on Game Pass. It was added on March 28, 2024. It still requires a Battle.net login to play, and a bit more of an involved install process than you might be used to. 

Here are the official instructions on how to install Diablo 4 on Game Pass:

  • Open the Xbox App on PC, make sure you are signed in with your Microsoft account tied to your Game Pass membership, and then click on Diablo IV and then the Install button.
  • Click ‘Install Battle.net’ when prompted and complete the installation.
  • You’ll be prompted to connect your Battle.net account to your Microsoft account. If you already have a Battle.net account you can log in to complete the connection, or create an account to make the connection.
  • Once you have downloaded Battle.net and connected your accounts, you can complete the installation of Diablo IV!
  • Hail Lilith!

The news of Diablo 4’s addition to Game Pass was revealed during a podcast in which Phil Spencer, CEO of Microsoft Gaming, discussed the business’ plans. You can see more of the podcast below.

Naturally, another question you might have regarding this announcement is about Diablo 4 cross progression. We already have hours upon hours of Diablo 4 playtime locked in on PC, so we certainly want to know what happens to it when we move to the couch. Check out our guide if you do too.
