Earlier this year, Blizzard announced the Diablo II: Resurrected Open Beta test, scheduled sometime before release in September 2021. Today, we finally have all of the details for the upcoming Beta, including when we’ll get to try it out and how they can score early access.
The road to launch begins.
? Early Access Beta: 8/13 – 8/16 ?? Open Beta: 8/20 – 8/22 ? Launch Day: 9/23
Early Access weekend: From 14th August (3:00 am, AEST) – 17th August, fans who have pre-ordered Diablo II: Resurrected or the Diablo Prime Evil Collection (Including Diablo II & III) on any platform will have access to the game early
Public Open Beta: From 21st August (3:00 an, AEST) – 23rd August all players will be able to experience the Diablo II: Resurrected Beta by downloading the game on their preferred platform with access to cross-progression between all devices.
Both phases of the upcoming Beta will include two extra classes for players to test out; the divine Paladin and the shape-shifting Druid. The original classes, Barbarian, Amazon and Sorceress will also be playable during this time, of course.
The Open Beta is limited to the first two acts of the game (to avoid spoiling the full experience!) but there won’t be any level cap so players can keep levelling and experimenting with different builds throughout the whole Beta period. The Open beta will also feature online multiplayer, allowing up to eight players to join forces in the battle or duel each other in PvP combat.
Developed by Vicarious Visions, Diablo II: Resurrected is a stunning ground-up remaster of the quintessential action RPG Diablo II featuring up to 4K (2160p) resolution and Dolby Surround 7.1 audio on PC. Diablo II: Resurrected will officially launch on September 24th, 2021 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4/5 and PC and is currently available for pre-order now on all platforms.
