Blizzard is offering two alpha tests for Diablo II: Resurrected. The studio confirmed this in a new interview and also announced the tests will be spilt up between single-player and multiplayer.
The single-player alpha test will arrive first, obviously followed by the multiplayer alpha. This is so they can put the game’s serves through paces before the game’s public release.
Chris Lena the games’ lead producer, confirmed these plans in an interview with PCGamesN. “We’re going to start with a single-player technical alpha, and then we’ll have a second technical alpha after that, which is kind of multiplayer and stress testing,” Lena stated.
These alphas are slated to begin later this year, but no specific date was given. You can try to get into the alpha by singing up on Blizzard’s website. Beware, there are sites out there claiming to have alpha keys in an attempt to scam people.
Lena added that Blizzard will consider further balance changes to Diablo II: Resurrected after launch, if there are enough complaints to warrant changes.
Diablo II: Resurrected, which is helped being developed by Tony Hawk studio Vicarious Visions, includes all of the content from the original game. This includes the Lords of Destruction expansion. Players can expect a bunch of remastered graphics, cross-progression and updated Battle.net support.
