Diablo II: Resurrected Remaster Releasing Later This Year (VIDEO)
It would be an understatement to say that gamers have been waiting for a Diablo II remaster for a very long time. I’d wager it to be almost as long as the amount of time I’ve been waiting for a Legend of Dragoon remaster. This is a day for Diablo fans, though, and we take our victories where we can get them. During the opening day of BlizzCon 2021, Blizzard has announced a Diablo II remaster titled Diablo II: Resurrected that will be releasing later this year for PC and consoles.
Originally released back in 2000, the upcoming Diablo II: Resurrected remaster will be releasing later this year for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. The title will support full cross-progression between PC and console. The remaster will of course include the base game as well as its expansion, Lord of Destruction. Check out the trailer below:
The Diablo II: Resurrected remaster brings with it a suite of quality of life features and enhancements. The game will support up to 4K resolution, featuring new animations, lighting, textures, and fully remade cinematics. That said, if players aren’t a fan of the new graphics then they can switch to an older style. One particularly enticing quality of life feature it a toggle that lets players pick up piles of gold without having to click on them, and players will also have a designated space to place loot that can be shared across their characters. Truly, the remaster we deserve.
Diablo II: Resurrected will be releasing later this year for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. Those looking to sign up for the upcoming Technical Alpha can do so right here.
