Blizzard warns players not to accept external alpha invites for Diablo II Resurrected

Blizzard warns players not to accept external alpha invites for Diablo II Resurrected

Make no mistake; Diablo is a really hot topic right now, and I don't just mean that because there are flames almost everywhere you go. Sure, the franchise may have you taking down the various Lords of Hell in one fiery abyss or another, but the one "chasm" you certainly don't want to fall into is a real-life scam. 

According to a tweet by the game's community development lead Adam Fletcher, the company is aware that various sites have been going around initiating "contests" or are "giving away access" to the upcoming alpha test for Diablo II: Resurrected, which was announced back at BlizzConline 2021 roughly two weeks ago. As a remastered version of one of the best dungeon-crawler games in history, you can imagine the hype for it would be pretty high, and obviously, that's what these scams are looking to prey on. But as the saying goes, "all that glitters is not gold", or in this case, "all that burns is not Diablo".

Humour aside, these contests and giveaways have been confirmed by Blizzard to be 100% false, and Fletcher's tweet proceeds to remind fans to not only reject any invites for the alpha that isn't from Blizzard, but they can actually sign up for it via the official site at Diablo2.com.

As for the actual test period, neither Blizzard nor Vicarious Visions have announced anything concrete yet, and the most we know right now is that it's already on its way. Nevertheless, if you didn't have the chance to check out the other Diablo content at BlizzConline, we've rounded up the most important bits for you here.
