One thing to note about Public Test Realms is that things may be subject to change. Since it is a form of testing, you can also anticipate experiencing a few or even many bugs during your experience. Progress on these servers does not carry over to the regular version of the game, either. Now, let’s dive into how to access the Public Test Realm in Diablo 2 Resurrected

The Public Test Realm (PTR) is accessible through the app. You already have this installed on your computer if you’re playing Diablo 2 Resurrected, so start by launching it. Pull up the Diablo 2 Resurrect game from the menu, and instead of clicking on Play, look for the little dropdown menu above the Play button. You should see an “In Development” section. Next, tap on “Public Test Realm” from the list of options.

After selecting Public Test Realm, the Play button will change to an Install button. Basically, you’ll need to install another copy of Diablo 2 Resurrected to your computer. At the time of writing, the file size is right around 30GB. If you need to make some space on your hard drive, do so before installing.

Players have access to level 99 characters for every class and build imaginable. Each character also has all the best-in-slot gear, all waypoints, and all quests completed. The reason for this is so players can thoroughly test things out and see how the upcoming patch affects things.
