The Open Beta of Diablo 2 Resurrected kicks off on Friday, August 20, at 10:00 a.m. (PDT). It opens to everyone, no matter you have pre-ordered Diablo 2 Resurrected or not. So longtime fans and new players alike both have a chance to participate in it. If players attended the Alpha Test in April, they could now start to test the faulty points that they found before.
The Open Beta Test lasts three days this weekend, from Friday, August 20 at 10:00 a.m. (PDT) to Sunday, August 23 at 10:00 a.m. (PDT).
Supported Platform and Download Method
The Open Beta Test is available for almost all the platforms, including Windows® PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, and PlayStation®4, with the only exception of the Nintendo Switch ™ system. But players can finally play across Nintendo Switch™ when the game officially launches on September 23.
If players play across Windows® PC, they can download the Open Beta Test via their Battle.net client from August 18. And if the players play on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, and PlayStation®4, they are able to download the Beta Test from the store page(s) across the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store from August 17.
1. TCP/IP support is not available in Diablo 2 Resurrected. It has allegedly been removed as developers are intended to prevent potential security risks and safeguard the game experience of players. But TCP/IP support also has some benefits which should not be ignored. For example, it is the way that can quickly reroll maps without external tools. But anyway, it means developers need to improve the experience in other ways since there is no TCP/IP support. And how they would do this and what it turns out to be are still unknown. So players can take this chance to test that.
2. The Open Beta Test has fixed faulty points of the Alpha Test and opened more areas for trial. Except for the three classes in the previous Alpha Test, players can experience another two new classes - Druid and Paladin. But the faulty point of which characters spawn in a hostile place before the game is fully loaded has not been fixed in this Open Beta Test. It will be fixed when the game is launched because developers didn’t want to delay the Beta Test time for this issue.
