Diablo 2 Resurrected launched today and to no surprise, everyone has flocked to play the game as soon as it became available at 8 AM Pacific. Right from the beginning, people have reported that their characters have disappeared shortly after leveling them.
Update: Blizzard has acknowledged that they are looking into the issues of some players not seeing their existing characters.
Other users on console, most notably Playstation 4 and 5 are receiving the error message “An issue occurred while communicating with the game servers. Please check that you are connected to the internet and try again.”
Users have reported that they are indeed connected to the internet but still receiving this error. To no surprise, this is not a user issue and is indeed a Diablo 2 server issue. The developers have yet to issues a response on this matter either.
Other players are reporting the error “failed to enter game. This character is already in a game on the server. Please try again.”
At the current moment, no one is able to create a game on any device for Diablo 2 Resurrected. The servers are completely down. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait to receive that nostalgia fix you were craving.
