Diablo 2: Resurrected is a full reboot of the Blizzard’s hack-and-slash RPG first released two decades ago. It promises updated graphics, 4K gaming, and all the content from Diablo II and it’s expansions.
The technical alpha of Diablo 2 Resurrected showed the full potential of the remake developed by Vicarious Visions, but it also served for Blizzard to gather a lot of feedback and apply some point improvements to its classic dungeon crawler.
Blizzard announced that the next beta round for Diablo 2: Resurrected (or Diablo 2 Remastered as everyone seems to be calling it) will go live sometime in August. The reveal was made at the bottom of a lengthy blog post outlining all the changes Vicarious Visions are making to the Diablo 2 remake.
Those who have pre-ordered Diablo 2: Resurrected will get another chance to play the game ahead of its full 23 September 2021 release date, with a beta testing phase opening in August for PC, Xbox and PlayStation gamers. Nintendo Switch fans however will have to wait until release to play.
Diablo 2: Resurrected pre-orders
You can pre-order Diablo 2: Resurrected ahead of its September 23 release date now. A bonus of doing so is early access to the multiplayer beta this August.
The standard edition comes in at $39.99/£34.99 and includes all of the content from both Diablo 2, and the Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction expansion. Here’s what’s else is thrown in. As per the store page, “players who already own any component of the Collection (e.g. Diablo® III) can get the remaining components at a discount by purchasing the Diablo Prime Evil Upgrade.”
The open beta will give players access to 8-player parties and five classes: Druid, Sorceress, Paladin, Amazon and Barbarian. It’s not clear how long the difference will be between everyone getting access vs. those who preordered. Either way, it’ll be a good chance to see how Diablo 2 Resurrected holds up on consoles, especially the Xbox Series X and PS5. (I imagine it’ll run quite nicely on the Xbox Series S, though.)
Our time with the technical alpha of Diablo 2: Resurrected showed great promise for the game, proving to be a faithful remake with enough modernized tweaks and improvements to lure back old and new fans alike. However, more than anything, it left us wanting to get our hands on Diablo 4, the next full sequel for the series, which as yet does not have a release date.
As we all know, in the original Diablo 2, Gold played a very important role. Although the player can accumulate some gold in the early stage, the damage of the monster will be greatly increased in the end-game. If you want to get D2 Resurrected Gold more easily, buying directly from a third-party website is the best choice.
