It wasn’t particularly long ago that Blizzard announced Diablo II: Resurrected, a remake of the classic RPG looter for modern platforms. At the same time, Blizzard also intimated that there would be both single- and multiplayer online tests this year before the game’s release, so players should get on that if they want in. Well, time’s running out.
Blizzard has confirmed that the first single-player test will be this weekend, started on April 8.
Let the claws of the demons drag you back in. The #DiabloII: Resurrected Technical Alpha starts 4/8.

The technical alpha will last until the following Monday, giving participants plenty of time to take part. If you wanted to sign up but haven’t, there might still be time to make yourself eligible. If you still don’t make it in, Blizzard does say that this is only the first one, but didn’t detail how many more there would be or when they would take place.
This alpha is also only limited to three classes, as well as only Act I & II. There’s also a few placeholder cinematics. Basically, this isn’t a demo of the full game, it’s a technical test ahead of the remake’s release later this year.
