Blizzard has announced a remastered version of Diablo II.
Blizzard has announced a remastered version of Diablo II. Entitled Diablo II: Resurrected, this new version touches up on the original. The game will be able to support 4K on PC, though players will be able to change back to the original old-school graphics if they choose to. Resurrected will feature revamped ladder seasons, where players worldwide can race to reach the top. There will be more frequent restarts in this new system. There will be a redesigned user interface, making it easier for players to navigate the game. Resurrected will also feature an extended Stash. The personal Stash has been increased from a 6x8 grid to a 10x10 grid. There will be a Shared Stash tab available for all characters on a single Battle.net account, as well as the ability to transfer gear between heroes much more easily.
Diablo II: Resurrected will also feature cross-platform progression. Players will be able to keep their progression across different platforms, allowing them access to their characters wherever they play Resurrected. All levels, quests, progress, skills, and talents will move between platforms. Gamers should take into account that cross-platform progression will require a linked Batlle.net account, as well as separate purchases of Resurrected across each supporting platform. Resurrected will also feature cooperative gameplay for up to eight players, with each players having access to one mercenary.
Diablo II: Resurrected is available for preorder here. There is the Standard Edition, which comes with Diablo II and its expansion, Lord of Destruction. There is also the Diablo Prime Evil Collection, which comes with Diablo II: Resurrected and Diablo III with all of its DLC.
Diablo II: Resurrected will release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and the Nintendo Switch later this year. Players can check out the game's website for a chance to sign-up for Resurrected's technical alpha for PC.
