The Failed to Authenticate error fix for the Diablo 2 Resurrected beta is a relatively simple one, depending on the situation. That said, the fix might not work for everybody; there’s a high likelihood that there’s nothing you can do on your end, because the issue is not on your end. Still, with that said, there is a chance that you can do something, and that’s what we’ll be showing you in this guide.
How to Fix Failed to Authenticate in Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta
To fix the Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta Failed to Authenticate error, the first thing that you need to know is that the issue is most likely not your fault. The blame is probably on the other side; specifically, you can bet there’s something wrong with the servers. Granted, there is a chance that you didn’t input the beta key properly, but I doubt that’ll be the case in an open beta. The most likely cause for this error is that there are too many people trying to log on causing the servers to buckle. Fairly standard for a beta of this sort. It could also be that the servers in your region aren’t up yet. So, basically, the most likely “fix” is to just be patient and keep trying.
Now, with all of that said, there is one more potential cause for the error – there might be an update pending that your platform hasn’t downloaded yet. This has been the case on Xbox during the closed beta, and it caused a lot of frustration and tension headaches. Luckily, if that’s the case with you, there’s an easy fix for the Diablo 2 Resurrected beta Failed to Authenticate error. All you need to do is either restart your console or Battle.net client, if you’re on PC. Once you do that, you should get a notification that there’s an update you need to download. Depending on your settings, it might start downloading automatically. Once the update is installed, try to run the game again.
