NOTE: YOU MUST HAVE AN ACCESS CODE TO INSTALL THE DIABLO II BETA.
If you were not one of 100,000 beta testers selected, you won't be able to play this beta. Blizzard has selected 100,000 players to participate in the company's largest public beta test in order to help stress test Battle.net servers prior to the launch of Diablo II.
The beta, which will be playable only over Battle.net, includes the Barbarian character class and portions of the game's first act. The purpose of the beta test is to ensure the stability of Battle.net servers worldwide. Participants in the closed beta testing are automatically included in the group that is selected to participate in the stress test.
The ESRB rating for this game is pending, though Blizzard Entertainment fully expects the game to receive a Mature rating. You must be 17 or older to download this beta. Please read the BETA test license agreement.
