Diablo II: Resurrected PC Single-player Technical Alpha Coming This Weekend

Blizzard Entertainment are excited to announce that the Diablo II: Resurrected Single-player Technical Alpha on PC will begin this Saturday, 10 April, at 12:01 a.m. AEST/2:01 a.m. NZST. Adventurers will be able to hunt down the Dark Wanderer once again, but this time in glorious HD!

A limited selection of players who opted-in for Technical Alpha will be chosen randomly for access and will receive instructions on how to participate over email in the coming days.  Technical Alpha will conclude for all testers on Tuesday, 13 April, at 3:00am AEST/5:00 a.m. NZST.

For the Technical Alpha, participants will be able to choose from three of the seven classes and be able to play through the entirety of the first two Acts of the game. Fight as the fierce melee focused Barbarian, the swift and agile Amazon, or the spell slinging Sorceress. Avenge the Rogues as you battle your way to their sacred Monastery and take on the Maiden of Anguish, Andariel before travelling East to the desolate deserts of Lut Gholein for the ultimate showdown with the Lord of Pain himself, Duriel. There will be no level cap, so all participants will be able to power up and upgrade their characters as much as they want until the end of the Technical Alpha.

Diablo II: Resurrected contains massively upgraded visuals with stunning 4K resolution, full 3D physically-based rendering, as well as a complete audio remaster in Dolby Surround 7.1 sound. Everything in the Technical Alpha will be a work in progress but we look forward to hearing any, and all, feedback from players as we test how Diablo II’s timeless gameplay fits with some of the refinements we are working on, such as auto gold pickup, shared stash, and controller support.

For this test, Blizzard Entertainment will be focusing on the single-player experience of Diablo II: Resurrected. Multiplayer is a huge part of Diablo II, and will be conducting a separate test focusing on that later this year.
