To get Early Access to the Diablo 4 Beta, you need to pre-order any edition of the game.
However, KFC is also giving out Early Access in a new promotion. Any customers who purchase a Double Down or any other KFC Sandwich via the KFC app or website before March 18 will also get Diablo 4 Beta Early Access.
Bear in mind that this is a limited-time deal until March 18, and is not available in restaurants or via third-party platforms. And though the offer is pushing the new Double Down sandwich, according to the website, a number of other options will also grant buyers Early Beta Access.
The KFC Diablo IV Early Access giveaway is also exclusive to the US, meaning those further afield cannot take advantage of the deal.
However, in the UK, O2 Priority is offering free entry to the Diablo 4 Early Access Beta to its members and Virgin Media customers.
