During the 2021 BlizzConline held last February 20 and 21, publisher Blizzard Entertainment and developer Vicarious Visions announced the release of the single-player technical alpha test of Diablo II: Resurrected. It will run from April 9 at 7:00 a.m. (PT) to April 12 at 10:00 a.m. (PT) and will be accessible to a limited amount of players who who have pre-registered on the Diablo II: Resurrected website.

The technical alpha test will be featuring two Acts: The Sightless Eye and The Secret of the Vizjerei. The main game will also launch seven playable classes -- the Amazon, Barbarian, Sorceress, Assassin, Necromancer, Druid and Paladin, but for the technical alpha test, the developers will be focusing their gameplay testing on the first three classes (Amazon, Barbarian, and Sorceress)

The Diablo II: Resurrected Technical Alpha is only the first test. So fans don't have to worry since there will be at least one other chance to participate in a future test. All players are also given permission to capture, record, or stream the game throughout the test.

This technical alpha test is single-player and will be focusing on early game systems, the three playable classes, and client performance data. However, Diablo II: Resurrected will also be launching multiplayer in an upcoming playable testing phase.


There is no official release date yet for Diablo II: Resurrected, but it is expected to come in 2021. It will be launching on Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. The developers will also be conducting play test phase for console players in the future.
