It appears that Microsoft Store may have leaked the release date for Diablo 2 Resurrected’s upcoming beta phase. According to the store, Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta will begin on August 17th.
Now while Microsoft and Blizzard were quick to react and removed the date, Reddit’s member crimson4649 screengrabbed it.
As its description reads, the beta will allow players to play one of the five classes. Players will also be able to customize their characters.
“Be among the first to return to Hell and experience the timeless gameplay of Diablo II, now remastered with modern visuals and audio that take advantage of today’s gaming hardware. Face the minions of Hell as one of five playable classes in the Beta. Each is highly customizable with countless build and gear options for players to explore.”
Diablo 2 Resurrected takes the 2D sprite-based classic and brings it into the present with full 3D physically-based rendering, dynamic lighting, revamped animations and spell effects—all stunningly delivered in up to 4K resolution. Additionally, the game will have enhanced cinematics. Not only that but its memorable soundtrack has also been reinvigorated to support Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
Diablo II Resurrected will release on September 23rd!
