Blizzard says not to fall for Diablo 2: Resurrected alpha scams

Apparently, there are some fake alpha contests and giveaways for Diablo 2: Resurrected floating around.

That's according to Blizzard community development lead Adam Fletcher, who said fake Diablo 2: resurrected alpha scams are making the rounds.

Fletcher said on Twitter there were numerous places stating they were running contests or giving away access. This is not the case, and if you want in on one or both of the two technical alphas which will be available you need to opt-in on the Diablo 2 website.

This is the definitive remastering of Diablo 2 and its Lord of Destruction expansion. You can expect dynamic lighting, revamped animations, and spell effects in up to 4K resolution, and all 27 minutes of the game’s classic cinematics have been remade shot-for-shot. The soundtrack has also been updated to support Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

Developed by Blizzard Entertainment and in-house studio Vicarious Visions, the game will be coming later this year to PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch with cross-progression between supported platforms.
