BlizzCon Online officially kicked off late last night and as previously rumoured, we did indeed get announcement for Diablo 2: Resurrected, a remaster of the fan-favourite ARPG for PC and consoles.
Diablo 2: Resurrected will be releasing for PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch later this year. A final release date has not been announced, but we do know that there will be a technical alpha test, which you can sign up to take part in HERE.
The remaster takes the original 2D sprite-based graphics and upgrades it to full 3D physically based rendering. Other graphical improvements include dynamic lighting, revamped animations and spell effects and support for 4K resolution.
Vicarious Visions, which recently became a Blizzard studio, is working on Diablo 2: Resurrected. The idea is to overhaul the graphics without making major changes to gameplay, ensuring long-time fans are returning to the game they remember, just with a modern coat of paint.
KitGuru Says: Hopefully we’ll get a more specific release date in the next few months. Are any of you looking forward to Diablo 2: Resurrected?
