Diablo 2 Resurrected Update 1.06 Patch Notes | Diablo 2 Resurrected Update 10.15 Patch Notes:
Update: Patch is out on PS5 (version 1.006)
- We have implemented a Login Queue for high traffic periods. This queue will pop up after the title screen when opening up the game. The queue will only appear during high traffic windows.
- Players will be shown a number on where they are in queue.
- Players will have the option of exiting the queue and playing offline immediately if they wish by hitting “Escape” on the queue prompt.
- We should note that the higher your queue number appears, the slower the number will refresh in the prompt. The number is still refreshing in the background, so we do not recommend leaving queue as this will create further delays to you entering the game during these high traffic windows.
Per Blizzard, the patch isn’t out yet on PS5, Xbox and Switch consoles, but once it is, we’ll let our readers know. For more on server issues and what’s causing it, head on here for Blizzard’s detailed explanation.
