In June, Blizzard announced that Diablo II: Resurrected would be having an Open Beta test later in the year. Today, they are revealing all the details of the Beta and when players will get to try it out. Check out all the upcoming dates:
- Early Access weekend – August 14, 1:00am GMT+8 – Fans who pre-ordered Diablo II: Resurrected or the Diablo Prime Evil Collection on Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 will be able to access the game early during this time.
- Public Open Beta weekend – August 21, 1:00am GMT+8 – During this time, all players will be able to experience the Diablo II: Resurrected Beta simply by downloading the game on PC, Xbox or PlayStation during the weekend. Players will be able to try out cross progression between platforms.
Both phases of the Open Beta will include two additional classes for players to dive into. The armor-clad holy Paladin and the ferocious shapeshifting Druid will now be playable alongside the Barbarian, Amazon, and Sorceress. In addition, the Open Beta will also include online multiplayer gameplay allowing up to eight friends to take on the forces of Hell together or even duel each other in PvP combat.
While the Open Beta will be limited to the first two acts of the game (we don’t want to spoil the experience!), there will be no level cap, so all participants will be able to level up and experiment with a variety of builds for their characters as much as they want until the end of the Open Beta.
Also… Stream and capture all the footage you want – As soon as you begin playing the Diablo II: Resurrected Open Beta (during Early Access or later), you are free to livestream, capture, and publish gameplay footage, or take and publish as many screenshots as you like from anywhere in the game.
