It was never going to be as smooth and problem-free as Blizzard wanted it to be, was it? Diablo 4 is available to play now on PS5, PS4 via the four days of early access granted by the Ultimate Edition, and many users are encountering an error to do with license issues. This is preventing them from playing the game, but it may be a problem on Sony’s end rather than something Blizzard can solve itself.
The developer is at least aware of the issue and is actively investigating, as community manager PezRadar writes: “We are seeing reports regarding PlayStation users experiencing Invalid License errors. The team is looking into this right now and will update once we have more information.” PC and Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One players have been able to play since the game went live less than an hour ago, suggesting it may be a Sony flaw.
Early access to Diablo 4 is only available in the Ultimate Edition of the game, with the full launch coming on 6th June 2023.
