The Diablo 2 Resurrected open beta weekend is finally here, but many players are unfortunately encountering various issues which prevent them from playing the game.

Players on Xbox are being troubled with the "Failed to authenticate" error message, while many other players are barely able to play the game as the servers are currently unstable.

When it comes to the PS5 and PS4, they are not being left without problems as well, because it seems that some players aren't able to install and play the game at the start of the Diablo 2 Resurrected open beta weekend.

Apparently, players are unable to update the game with the latest Diablo 2 Resurrected open beta patch and on top of that, they are getting the "license expired" message.

If you are seeing the message saying that your beta license has been expired, it means that the beta on your PlayStation is locked and you are unable to currently play the game.

But you are probably wondering how can that happen because this is the open beta and everyone can play it for free.

Luckily, this is just an inconvenience, a minor error that can be easily fixed in just a few steps, and you will be able to update the game and start playing it in no time.

So, how to remove the "License Expired" message and install the Diablo 2 Resurrected beta update?

What you need to do is to go to the PS Store and "purchase" (for free) the new beta version, as the beta you currently have is the old beta from the last weekend and that's why it says that the licence has expired.

Just search in the PS Store for "Diablo 2 Resurrected beta" and you will be presented with the new version. Install the new Diablo 2 Resurrected beta, restart your console just in case, and that should do the trick.

Now you have the proper version of the beta, and with that, your Diablo 2 Resurrected beta "License Expired" issue has been fixed!
