If you’re looking forward to playing Diablo II Resurrected later this year but can’t stand the wait, you may not have to wait as long as you think. According to Blizzard, the game will get two playtests before its release, including both a single player and a multiplayer test.
The news comes from PCGamesN, which interviewed lead producer Chris Lena about the game.
“We’re going to start with a single-player technical alpha, and then we’ll have a second technical alpha after that, which is kind of multiplayer and stress testing,” Lena told the outlet. Blizzard wasn’t able to offer any specifics on timing, but they did say that they will obviously hit before Diablo II Resurrected hits this year.
The alphas are key to how the game will be balanced and will give the team a good look at how it functions, both in single player and multiplayer, when it gets into a real world scenario. Those interested in signing up can do so on the game’s official site.
