Diablo II Resurrected live on Twitch and YouTube starting Thursday

Blizzard announced that this weekend Diablo II: Resurrected will be available to play in a limited Technical Alpha experience. This means you won't likely get to keep what you find, and your characters might never see the light of day after said Alpha is complete. BUT you'll get to play... if you're lucky enough to be invited to play. If not, there's always YouTube and Twitch for watching streamers who have said opportunity.

YouTube seems to have quietly rolled out the option to watch 4K/60p videos on any mobile device even if it doesn't have an Ultra HD display.
