Designed to take advantage of today’s modern technology has Diablo II: Resurrected support for 4K. The sound is freshly mixed in 7.1 Dolby Surround so players will be able to cuddle (rush?) Even more for each blood-gurgling death cry that comes echoing. All movie sequences have been given a facelift as well. At the same time, an enormous amount of work has been put into bringing it in Diablo II in the modern era, they have tried to maintain the authenticity of the original.
Diablo II: Resurrected contains seven iconic classes to choose from; Amazon, Barbarian, Necromancer, Paladin and Sorceress. Everyone with their own playing styles. Druid and Assassin from Lord of Destruction will also be back. The new 3D models have updated armor, clothes, textures, animations, etc. The whole game has received a proper update visually, so for old players the experience will be a little extra special. Despite all the updates, the basic principles still remain – it is dark, threatening and atmospheric, just as the old ring foxes remember it. If you would rather experience the game with its original graphics, just press a button.
Diablo II: Resurrected is available on several platforms. Of course, the game can be purchased on Blizzard’s Battle.net, but can also be purchased via Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. With the help of “cross-progression”, players can log in to their Battle.net account and get access to their characters, regardless of which platform they bought the game for.
The remaster also includes a wide range of availability and quality of life choices. It allows the player to fine-tune their experience without compromising on the classic way it is played. Some of these updates are:
Control support on all platforms
Font size, color blind mode, reading options
Emote wheels for faster communication
Volume adjustment for a variety of audio channels
Extended and shared stash
Extensive choices for key-binding, i.a. an ‘Interact’ hotkey for controls, etc.
Diablo II: Resurrected will give fans of the series a dear reunion of this classic, as well as attract new players. Vicarious Visions, a studio part of Blizzard Entertainment, is behind the remaster and Blizzard says they are very proud of the result.
