Diablo 2 Resurrected is all set to enter the beta stages, and fans are eagerly looking forward to getting their hands on the highly anticipated game.

Announced back at Blizzcon 2021, Diablo 2 Resurrected is a remaster of the classic 2000s fan-favorite Diablo 2. Along with that, it also comes with the Lord of Destruction expansion. The game doesn’t seem like a mere remaster, with the developers having some ambitious plans for it.
