‘Diablo 2 Resurrected’ dropping this year on all platforms. Fuck yes, I’ll dance with the remastered devil!
Diablo 2 Resurrected is dropping this year, and I’m fucking stoked. The original Diablo 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, and meant so much to me that it made my senior yearbook. Yeah, I’m also that fucking old. And that fucking lame. None the less, let’s do this baby!
Diablo 2 Resurrected will be a faithful remaster of Diablo 2 and its expansion, Lord of Destruction. Blizzard announced Resurrected in the closing moments of its BlizzConline opening ceremony on Friday.
Blizzard will release Diablo 2 Resurrected on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X later this year. A “technical alpha” for PC coming soon.
Diablo 2 Resurrected takes Diablo 2’s 2D sprites and paints over them with fully 3D-rendered models. The game’s new graphics can display in up to 4K resolution, but players can also toggle back to the original “nostalgic” graphics by pressing a button. Blizzard also promises 7.1 Dolby Surround support and 27 minutes of remastered cutscenes for Resurrected.
Blizzard will dive deeper into Diablo 2 Resurrected’s new features over the course of BlizzConline.
Diablo 2 Resurrected features cross-progression for saves and will run players $39.99 later this year.
