It’s an enormous weekend for Diablo fans because the open beta has just begun for Diablo 2: Resurrected. Last weekend, we had a closed beta that was only accessible to those who pre-ordered the sport, but this weekend, the beta is hospitable to everyone regardless of their pre-order status. The beta is survived Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Playstation 5, and PC, and here we’ll tell you ways to urge access to it if you weren’t already in last weekend.
If you would like to access the open beta, you’ll first get to download the beta from your platform’s respective store. The method is pretty straightforward on PlayStation, as both betas for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 are listed alongside Diablo 2: Resurrected’s various editions. Just pick the platform you would like to play on, download the excellent beta, then you’re good to travel.
On Xbox, things are a touch more tricky, but only because the beta page is listed separately from the opposite editions of the sport. We’ve got the direct link to the beta page on the Microsoft Store, so head there, check-in together with your Microsoft account, and download the open beta to the system you would like to play on.
On PC, you’ll get to download the Battle.net launcher and log into your Battle.net account (or create one if you don’t have already got one). From there, attend the Diablo 2: Resurrected tab, then within the “Game Version” menu above the “Install” button, select “Beta.” Install that, and you’re good to travel.
One thing to stay in mind is that while you’ll need Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus (depending on your platform) to access multiplayer features when the sport launches, you don’t need active subscriptions to either of these to play during the open beta, albeit you would like to play multiplayer. So, if you’ve got a lapsed subscription to either service, you don’t get to re-up before you’re taking the open beta for a spin.
In addition, albeit Diablo 2: Resurrected is launching on Nintendo Switch, there’s no version of the open beta for that platform, so Switch owners will need to get their Diablo 2 kicks elsewhere for the nonce. The Diablo 2: Resurrected open beta is on now and runs until Monday, August 23rd at 10 AM PDT/1 PM EDT.
