Currently the multiplayer beta of Diablo 2 resurrected on PC, PlayStation and Xbox runs. However, if you want to gamble on the consoles with other players, you could encounter a problem, because an important feature is missing there: the lobby.
What is the lobby? In the lobby you can create games and browse already created rounds to join them. So you can quickly and easily find fellow players in Diablo 2 without having to invite friends to friends.
Already earlier, in the original Diablo 2, there was this option via the Battle.net. The PC version of the Remaster also offers a lobby. However, in the current Early Access beta, the feature is missing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | s.
The beta has some smaller and greater problems at the start, but the lack of the lobby disturbs at the feedback currently some of the fans (via reddit.com).
Why is she important? Your own game can be named freely. The name of a lobby usually describes what is planned there. This makes it easy to find groups for specific activities, such as:
- Quests and levels
- Boss Runs and Farming
The famous Baal Runs, in which targeted the end boss of Lord of Destruction is shocked, have been really efficient through the lobby. Now players are missing on the console this option.
Fans on console need alternatives
How can you play on console anyway? Diablo 2 Resurrected offers on PlayStation and Xbox the regular party function of the respective platform. So you can invite friends as usual and play them directly with them.
But that means: If your farm groups or player is looking for action, you must first find yourself on a third-platform such as Reddit or the forum and then add friends. The chat is also bound to the platform.
Alternatively, the multiplayer of the Remasters works on consoles like that of Diablo 3. You can join random, open games from others, but then do not guarantee that you get the right group caught.

Does the lobby still come? That’s hard to say. The feature belongs to the original game, but Diablo 3 has also received no lobby with console porting. Until the release on September 23, there could be something here.
For the moment Diablo 2 is not playable in the couch coal, but only online on consoles. With this feature you could at least meet directly with friends for a Zock evening.
