After releasing the technical alpha for Diablo 2: Resurrected earlier this year, Blizzard has since announced the release date for the game itself at E3 2021. For those who have been looking forward to getting their hands on it, Diablo 2: Resurrected will now be released on the 23rd of September later this year.
It will be playable across a wide variety of platforms which includes the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and also the Nintendo Switch, which pretty much covers all platforms. Blizzard is also expected to launch a multiplayer beta in August, so that might be something that gamers can look forward to if they want to check the game out early.
Players who pre-order the game will be granted early access to the beta, so that’s some incentive right there. However, it should be noted that the beta will only offer five playable classes – Amazon, Druid, Barbarian, Paladin, and Sorceress, while the Necromancer and Assassin will only be available once the full game is out.
Since Diablo 2: Resurrected is based on an old game, it will be priced at $39.99 instead of the usual $59.99 we see for most triple A titles. However, there will be a Diablo Prime Evil Collection priced at $59.99 which also includes Diablo 3 Eternal Collection as well as some added Diablo 3 cosmetics.
