Diablo IV is out, not less than in Early Access, and whereas issues appear to be going easily up to now on PC—fingers crossed—a great deal of PS5 gamers have run right into a wall and might’t entry the sport.

It’s not a standard “servers down” or “queue full” kinda deal both: as an alternative the difficulty stopping them from logging in is a licensing one, with gamers getting “Unable to discover a legitimate license for Diablo IV” screens, which is an error they need to solely be getting if Blizzard couldn’t confirm their buy license, however which is presently affecting individuals who have clearly paid for the sport. And not simply the sport, however the dearer variations of the sport!

The difficulty is so widespread that solely an hour after launch Blizzard had already famous it each on Twitter and the sport’s boards, promising they’re “wanting into this proper now and can replace as soon as we have now extra info”. The downside is generally affecting PS5 gamers, however there are additionally remoted stories of Xbox customers getting the identical message.

While of us have been ready and endlessly retrying their logins, nonetheless, some have found a short lived workaround. It appears that making a $1.99 forex buy—you don’t must login to the sport to entry its retailer—kicks one thing within the backend and is letting some gamers in.

I’m not recommending you do that—it’s not assured to work, and also you’ve paid for the sport already, don’t pay extra!—simply mentioning it is extremely humorous {that a} full-price sport that’s already going to try to fleece you with microtransactions is now inadvertently providing one other to bypass a rocky launch.

Well, Early Access launch. Who is aware of if this may occur once more (or proceed taking place) for the sport’s precise launch subsequent week, but when there was ever going to be a time for one final tinker behind the scenes, I assume that is it!

UPDATE 9pm ET Some customers are reporting that downloading a free merchandise/program from the PlayStation Store additionally works, so you’ll be able to attempt that in the event you’re on PS5, nonetheless suck and don’t need to pay the $2.
