There are a few handy workarounds to help solve your license issues.

When loading up Diablo 4, many PlayStation 5 players were met with an unexpected error message that read: “Unable to find a valid license for Diablo IV.” This issue has left some players unable to fully enjoy their early access privileges.

To help combat this, some fans have found a rather interesting workaround. Essentially, as reported by users on Blizzard’s technical support, simply purchasing the smallest in-game package from Diablo 4 will trick your PlayStation into granting you that lost license.

While we don’t recommend purchasing packages just so you can get into the game, one fan has taken to Reddit to explain a free way to solve this issue, stating: “If you download anything from the PlayStation store like a free game it’ll let you through the queue. Just got into the initial settings.”

It seems all the PlayStation store needs is a reminder that you have a valid license and you’ll be able to play the game.
