Blizzard announced yesterday a technical alpha from Diablo II: Resurrected, which can be played on PC during this weekend if you are lucky with the registration – you have to sign up here with the Battle.net account.
The “first of several tests” for this remastering will not have multiplayer, although an Internet connection will be required, and obviously it will not include all the content of the final version: for now we will have the first two acts and three classes (Amazon, Barbarian and Sorceress ).
The progress in the technical alpha stays there, you will not be able to export or import save files, and for the rest of platforms (Diablo II: Resurrected will also come to PlayStation, Xbox and Switch) there will be different tests in other phases of development.
They also clarify from Blizzard that anyone will be able to capture and broadcast games during these next few days. If it does not touch place in the alpha, then, there will be the option to go through Twitch.
Diablo II: Resurrected It was the big announcement of the last BlizzConline, although several information about the project blew us days before that presentation; We were then surprised to learn that Vicarious Visions, the studio responsible for several remakes of Activision (they embroidered it with the last ones, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2), is in charge of recovering the basic classic of Blizzard 20 years after its premiere.
