- Amazone – a wild warrior who preferes spears
- Barbar – a brutal carving
- Sorceress – The Classic Magic User
- Druid – a primeval fighter that can turn into animals
- Paladin – a holy champion with the power of light
To release then the Assassine and the necromant are added. The Assassine fights with claws in melee. The necromant uses his forces to bring dead, fighting for him.
Which file can I play? Act I and Act II will be fully included in the beta, including all cinematics. In the finished game, a total of 5 acts will be included with Baal as the final boss of Lord of Destruction.
Can I play with friends? Yes, the beta will allow coop gameplay for groups of up to 8 players. Pvp should also be possible in the form of duels. CrossSplay is currently not available.
With the betas, the last errors should be eradicated from the Remaster so that the release runs smoothly. So you see as tests on and not as a pre-access, especially since earned progress is not taken over anyway.
But you can also use the Open Beta to make a picture of Remaster or Diablo 2 in general. The second part is valid in the community as the wedding of Diablo and may be worthwhile even if you come without nostalgic feelings:
