KFC and the Diablo IV beta team up to kill your heart

KFC Fried Chicken Sandwich Diablo IV Promo

How far are you willing to go to play Diablo IV early?

Activision Blizzard is teaming up with fried chicken purveyor KFC to help you grease your way into Diablo IV’s upcoming beta on PC and console.

All you need to do to get access to the Diablo IV beta is order a Double Down “sandwich” from KFC.com or their delivery app. No one says you have to eat it. Simply buying the “sandwich” will grant you a code, which you just plug into your Battle.net account. Then, the beta runs from March 17 to March 20. As far as I can tell, this is only for the U.S. I’m in Canada, and I installed the app for “research purposes,” and the Double Down “sandwich” is not even available.

I love fried chicken. It is my secret weakness, my guilty pleasure, and my forbidden lover. My first child was named “Fried Chicken” until the authorities took them from me. It is doubtlessly the best way to take one of the leaner proteins and turn it into the most delicious filth imaginable. Cultures all over the world have discovered their own way of sucking all the nutrition out of poultry. It’s amazing.

However, KFC was something I really enjoyed when I was a kid (when it was known as Kentucky Fried Chicken), then it went through a huge period of being entirely inedible, and recently I’ve discovered that it’s now decent. It doesn’t hold a candle to Popeye’s, but if I was in a food court when Armageddon arrives and there was only a KFC, I’d die fed but unimpressed.

That’s how you know this isn’t a sponsored article. The offer starts now. Buy your Double Down “sandwich” from the KFC app or KFC.com and get a key for the Diablo IV beta. You’ll get access from March 17 to March 20.
