Due to the magnitude of the upcoming Diablo II 1.10 patch, we are for the first time ever conducting a special patch beta test! Unlike our previous beta tests, you do not have to sign up to participate. To help beta test the Diablo II 1.10 patch, you simply need to download and install the beta patch. For now, the beta patch is only available for Windows PCs; well post an announcement once the separate beta patch for Mac is available. Select the links below for more information. Please note that the patch only works for the US version of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction (the final release of the patch will be for both Diablo II Classic and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction).
NOTICE: Diablo II BETA Patch 1.10 is playable ONLY in single-player mode and ONLY via TCP/IP for multiplayer. You cannot play this version on Battle.net. If you install this patch, you will not be able to connect to Battle.net to play Diablo II or Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. If you wish to play on Battle.net again, we are including a batch file (RevertTo109.bat) that you can use to revert back to Diablo II: Lord of Destruction version 1.09. You can also uninstall the beta patch and reinstall the game to regain access to Battle.net. We will be posting a list of what this patch changes soon.
