Diablo 2 Resurrected closed beta is coming to an end on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.
After a weekend of action, the Diablo 2 Resurrected beta ends at 6pm BST on August 17.
The current beta is for pre-order customers only, although an open beta will take place later this week.
The open beta is available on the same platforms, and doesn't require any sort of pre-purchase. You can pre-load the open beta on August 17, just after the closed beta comes to an end.
The good news about the open beta is that you don't need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Gold subscription in order to play online.
Diablo 2: Resurrected‘s recent Early Access Beta (which will be open to the public starting on August 20th) gave fans another chance to dive into this highly-anticipated remaster and see whether or not this game lives up to the hype or whether we’re looking at another Warcraft 3: Reforged situation.
It feels odd to invoke the name of Warcraft 3: Reforged when discussing Diablo 2: Resurrected (they’re different games made by different teams, after all), but the fact of the matter is that Warcraft 3: Reforged was supposed to be a surefire hit and turned out to be a disaster. That remaster (as well as everything else happening at Activision Blizzard at the moment) essentially ensured that Diablo 2: Resurrected will face increased scrutiny from fans.
