The Diablo 4 review embargo is finally being lifted, with reviews offering fans a tantalizing insight into the enormous RPG coming very soon.

If you’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of Diablo 4 over the past 11 years since the launch of the last mainline Diablo game, then have we got good news for you.

Keep reading to find out exactly when you can expect Diablo 4 reviews to release and where you can read them!

When Does the Diablo 4 Review Embargo End?

The Diablo 4 review embargo will be lifted on Tuesday, May 30, at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST.

The review embargo will lift in:

This is approximately two days before the game’s early access launch exclusive for those who pre-ordered it and eight days before its official launch on June 6.

The May 30 date is purely for non-spoiler reviews. So, if you just want to know whether the game is good or not, this is the time to check out reviews.

However, reviewers and content creators can begin posting spoilers, entire walkthroughs, detailed content about bosses, the story, and more on June 2.

The Diablo 4 Beta, which ran over two weekends in March, was generally well-received, with Blizzard even taking onboard feedback and promising important changes for the full release.

You will be able to find the reviews and opinions of Diablo 4 when the review embargo lifts on May 30 on the following sites:

Diablo 4 Metacritic / Opencritic Score

Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition currently sits at a staggering 90 Metascore with a user rating of 7.8. Similarly, it has an 89 Top Critic Average and a 98% Critics Recommend score.

On the other hand, the more recent Diablo Immortal has a much lower Metascore of 59 with a user rating of 0.3. It has a relatively low 66 Top Critic Average and a 31% Critics Recommend score.

However, it is worth noting that Diablo Immortal started as a mobile title packed with microtransactions and is not indicative of the experience players can expect to get from Diablo 4.

If anything, Diablo 4 is a revision of the business model Blizzard took with Immortal and a return to form in the eyes of many.

We expect Diablo 4’s Metascore and Top Critic Average to be closer to Diablo 3’s than Immortal’s and hit the 90 to 95 mark.
