Diablo 2: Resurrected is getting an open beta next week

Blizzard has announced that Diablo fans can get started with the open beta of Diablo 2: Resurrected next week.

The beta will be spread over two weekends and the game will be playable on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series consoles. The game from August 13 will be playable this weekend for those who pre-ordered the game. Those should be able to download the game from today.

The following weekend, the beta will be open to everyone and will run from August 20 to 23. Everyone should be able to download the beta from August 18.

In terms of content, both weekends will be the same. Players can choose from five different classes: Barbarian, Sorceress, Amazon and the two new classes Druid and Paladin. There are two campaign acts playable: Act 1: The Sightless Eye and Act 2: The Secret of the Vizjerei, including recreated cinematics.

You can also access multiplayer in both betas, including PvP. Co-op is available for up to eight players in a single game, and Blizzard said monsters’ HP and loot will be scaled appropriately.

Cross-progression between all supported platforms is also available, meaning you can pick up where you left off on any of the platforms. While Xbox Live Gold is required for the first beta, the open beta is free for everyone. PlayStation Plus is not required for either.

The Diablo 2: Resurrected tests are always online, but the full game offers separate offline saves for solo players. Blizzard also shared the game’s minimum and recommended PC specs, which we’ve included below.
