It's here -- for the lucky few that is. The Diablo II: Resurrected Single-player Technical Alpha on PC is set to kick off this weekend beginning on Saturday, April 10 at 12:01 a.m. AEST. Where players will be able to experience the impressive remaster until Tuesday, April 13 at 3:00am AEST.

How do you know if you made it in? Well, Blizzard will be sending out notifications to a "limited selection" of players in the coming days detailing how they can jump in.



The Technical Alpha is going to be chunky too with three of the seven playable classes on offer -- Barbarian, Sorceress, and Amazon -- and the first two Acts of the game. This means you'll be battling Andariel and then traveling East to the deserts to face off against Duriel. Also, Blizzard has confirmed that there wont be a level cap either.

Diablo II: Resurrected is shaping up to be something truly special, as it retains the core experience with the addition of some breathtaking 4K 3D visuals. The team behind the remaster will also be using the Technical Alpha test on PC to get feedback from players relating to how it all feels and even what they think about some of the new quality of life changes like auto gold pickup. Plus, the new controller support too.

In terms of system requirements the game looks to be fairly modest too -- with a Nvidia GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT listed as the recommended GPU for smooth 1080p performance.
