Diablo II Resurrected – Technical Alpha Starts April 9

Following some rumors, the developers from Blizzard have officially announced the beginning of the first single-player technical alpha of Diablo II Resurrected on Friday, April 9th. The first test will focus on the first two acts and offer three playable classes: the Amazon, the Barbarian and the Sorceress.

Pursue the mysterious Dark Wanderer and fight the denizens of hell as you uncover the fate of the Prime Evils Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, now in up to 4K (2160p) resolution on PC.
