Blizzard announced on Tuesday that as of April 9, some Diablo fans will be able to play the Diablo 2 remaster, Diablo 2: Resurrected, as part of the technical alpha test. A small group of players who chose the alpha test on Blizzard’s website will receive a break this week. The test period will continue until Monday, April 12.
Diablo 2: Resurrected technical alpha does not allow cooperative play and includes three of the game’s seven classes: Barbarian, Amazon, and Sorceress. Fans and some broadcasters will be able to play the first two shows of Diablo 2: Resurrected, including Duriel boss fight.
While this alpha is only for single player and a limited number of classes are available, there won’t be a level cap. Dedicated players will be able to test a fully leveled version of the three available classes if they have the patience and time to maximize them.
Blizzard also promised an alpha test focused on multiplayer in 2021.
Blizzard first announced Diablo 2: Resurrected at the BlizzConline event earlier this year. Remaster is exactly what Diablo 2 fans remember, warts and all, completely reimagined with 4K graphics and Dolby Surround sound. Blizzard has not announced the release date for Diablo 2: Resurrected, but it will arrive on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
