Diablo II: Resurrected Early Access And Open Beta Dates Announced

Both beta tests will be available on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, and PS5, and while the Nintendo Switch is planned to be a part of the launch list of consoles, it will not be open for the beta.

Players will be able to pre-load the console version on the 17th of August and the Windows version of the game on the 18th of August, which lines up with the release date published by Microsoft last week.

Many of the quality of life features previously announced will not be included in this test to ensure the core gameplay features are testing first and foremost.
