Blizzard is releasing a highly anticipated remake this year, and a recent update suggests we may find out more about it very soon.
As part of the release of Diablo 2 Resurrected, the development team is planning at least two Alpha tests.
This will help balance the gameplay and resolve issues with the overall experience.
It will also allow Blizzard to collect vital information from fans who test the game.
And from what was shared by Inven this week, there could be a Diablo 2 Resurrected Alpha kicking off this week.
Based on the information listed on the South Korean site, the big news from Diablo 2 could be shared on April 9.
Inven’s translated report reads: “Diablo 2: Resurrection received approval for a test game from the game management committee on the 1st.
“According to the announcement, ‘Diablo 2: Resurrection’ will be tested from April 9 to 13. The evaluation staff is 19,999 people. Diablo 2: Resurrection received a rating that young people are not allowed to use. “
This suggests that the first Diablo 2 Alpha could arrive this week, however, Blizzard has yet to share details on their plans.
So, as with all reports, it’ll be worth taking this latest update with a big pinch of salt until we learn more about Blizzard.
To register and have a chance to play the Alpha, players will need to create a Battle Net account.
But it’s unclear at this point which platforms will host the next phase of testing, and whether it will be limited to PC platforms.
Diablo 2 Resurrected is slated to launch this year, which means we should see the first Alpha Test appear in the coming months.
Fans have been warned not to sign up for other offers as they will most likely be linked to scams.
A warning from Blizzard reads: “Just a warning to anyone interested in Diablo II: Risen and Tech Alpha…
“Don’t fall for scams. I have seen many places declare that they have competitions or give access to them. This is not true. The best way to participate is to register at http://Diablo2.com. “
For those who prefer a more nostalgic experience, players will be able to switch freely between modern graphics and the original experience at any time with the push of a button.
And while Diablo II: Resurrected may look like a whole new game, Diablo II’s gameplay and signature systems are completely intact, quirks and all, adding some much-requested quality of life improvements, such as a shared stash. .
The full description adds: “Diablo II was a pivotal game for Blizzard and millions of players around the world. With Diablo II: Resurrected, we’re excited to bring this classic back to PC and consoles as well – with cross-progression on supported platforms – so players can relive their memories or experience the timeless gameplay of Diablo II for the first time, on their platform of choice, ”said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment.
