Diablo 2: Resurrected Will Have Two Alphas Before Launch

Gamers will be able to test Diablo 2: Resurrected twice before it releases. 

It has been announced that Diablo 2: Resurrected will have two alpha tests before it releases later this year. In an interview with PCGamesN, lead producer Chris Lena gave a few details for the alphas. There will first be a single-player alpha, and then there will be a multiplayer alpha that will serve as a stress test for the game. Lena stated that the developers will be open to things like balance changes to help keep the title vibrant for modern gamers. 

"We're going to start with a single-player technical alpha, and then we'll have a second technical alpha after that, which is kind of multiplayer and stress testing," Lena told PCGamesN. "But, that's all we have for specifics."

Gamers can head over to the official Diablo 2: Resurrected website in order to sing-up to be a part of the upcoming alphas. 

Diablo 2: Resurrected was announced last month, and will touch up on the original. The game will support 4K on PC, though players will have the option to switch back to the original's old-school graphics if they please. There will be changes made to players' Stashes. The personal Stash has been increased from a 6x8 grid to a 10x10 grid. There will be a shared Stash tab for all the characters on a single Battle.net account, as well as the ability to transfer items between characters much easier. Resurrected will feature cooperative gameplay, allowing up to eight players take on the game together. The game will also feature cross-platform progression, allowing gamers to keep their progress across multiple platforms, including levels, quests, progress, skills, and talents. 

Diablo 2: Resurrected is set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5. Xbox Series X/S, and the Nintendo Switch later this year.
