Diablo 2 Resurrected is getting one final patch before the game goes into open beta, and there are a handful of changes that are helping clean up the game’s performance.

The full retail release of Diablo 2 Resurrected is fast approaching, but before that, Blizzard is hosting an open beta of the game for fans to dip their toes back into hell.

Diablo 2 Resurrected’s Open Beta is running from August 20 – August 23, but before it drops, Blizzard is putting out one last patch to make some final adjustments before the game is played by the general public.

These patch notes show that Blizzard is cleaning up more buggy areas of the game so that when it is played by a more broad audience in the open beta there will be fewer issues. There is also an update for players that use a controller that helps clean up previously inaccurate button presses, which were leading to players spending points in skills they didn’t want. Most of the other changes are fixing bugs that were previously crashing the game for many players, including upon launching the game.
