This issue got so big that the devs at Blizzard took to Twitter to address the fans that they are currently looking into this error. Some players suggested that purchasing a $2 DLC from the store is a workaround to accessing Diablo 4. However, we don’t recommend this as you’ve already paid full price for the game. However, some reports claiming free items from the store are also fixing the issue. Let’s talk about some fixes as to how you can fix this problem.

Wait Patiently Until This Issue Is Resolved Officially

This isn’t technically a fix for the problem, “unable to find a valid license for Diablo 4”. However, this is the best advice from my side. Diablo 4 is a major game in the franchise, and the servers right now are flooded with players (at the time of writing) who are trying to log into the game. This might be one of the major reasons why you’re facing this issue.

Right now, the problem is being actively looked at, and the developers will be fixing this on the highest priority. Instead, you try fiddling with workarounds which end up costing you additional money; it’s better to wait a while. The issue will be resolved soon, and you’ll start slaying demons with your pals in no time. 

Start Downloading A Game From PS Plus or Game Pass Ultimate

This is also a potential workaround that will let you access Diablo 4 during this time of error code crisis. If you’ve got a PS Plus or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription on PS5 or Xbox respectively, I recommend your start downloading a game from there. You should try downloading a game which was recently added to the subscription and hit download. This somehow refreshes your system and reminds it that you’ve got access to Diablo 4. 

Once you start to download the game, pause it and then try starting Diablo 4 again on your Playstation 5 or Xbox. If everything goes well, there’s a high chance you’ll gain access to the game and will be able to log in and start playing immediately. This is a popular fix that is helping players fix the issue that the system being unable to find a valid license for Diablo 4; hopefully, this can work for you too. 

Purchase A DLC or In-Game Item For Diablo 4

This is also a popular workaround the players have discovered, but I personally discourage this. Apparently, a slew of players has reported that purchasing a DLC or an in-game item from the store during this error code debacle has earned them access to the game. 

This isn’t a guaranteed fix, and on the other hand, paying your way into accessing a game that you’ve already purchased at full price sounds awful. However, if you’re eager to play the game and don’t mind spending a few bucks to access it, then go right ahead. 

Did You Finally Gain Access To Diablo 4? 

Did any of the downloading free content or purchasing a DLC weapon or armor get you access to the game?
