Despite some drops to the player count in some post-launch seasons, Diablo 4 was an incredibly successful launch, and now only gets more exciting as it is heading to Xbox Game Pass soon.

I know I'll be jumping in and working my way towards the best Rogue build, but many others will be able to try out the horrors of Sanctuary in the game for the very first time on both PC and Xbox through the subscription service.

When is Diablo 4 coming to Xbox Game Pass?

Diablo 4 will arrive on Xbox Game Pass on March 28, 2024, giving subscribers on both the PC and Xbox platforms the chance to explore the wastes, take down Lilith, and become the best Barbarian there ever will be.

This news was first announced in the Xbox business update podcast and was something that many fans have been both expecting and anticipating ever since news of the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merger came to light. This does indicate that future Blizzard games will come to Game Pass at or within proximity to launch, falling in line with the ethos Xbox has set out for its first-party titles.

There is quite a lot to get to grips with if you're jumping into Diablo 4 for the first time - especially in the midst of Season 3's new content. Unfortunately, you won't be able to experience this until you finish the campaign, but you can definitely use these XP farms to make the process a whole lot quicker and easier.
