In case you’re unfamiliar, Diablo 2: Resurrected is a remaster of Blizzard’s iconic Diablo 2 and Lord of Destruction expansion. Developed by Vicarious Visions, Resurrected promises to deliver the same gameplay and core experience as the original, but with improved graphics, as well as several quality-of-life features.
Resurrected’s updates include:
- Remastered graphics—monsters, heroes, items, spells, all re-made from the ground-up.
- Classic gameplay—Resurrected promises to play the same as the original.
- Updated Battle.net support.
- Planned support for cross-progression on PC and consoles.
Aside from these mentioned changes, Diablo 2: Resurrected will also come with controller support on PC and consoles. Blizzard also revealed that the game’s PS5 version will come with DualSense features support.
And for fans of the original, while there will be quality-of-life changes, the game will still retain the original’s core systems, including things like the item tetris system.
Diablo 2: Resurrected will release on September 23, 2021 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Switch.
