Diablo II Resurrected Announced at BlizzConline 2021
Diablo 2 Resurrected the remastered version of Diablo 2 and its expansion Lord of Destruction has been announced. Blizzard shared this news at BlizzConline today at the opening ceremony during the closing moments.
The game will be coming to Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X later in 2021. Also a “technical alpha” is coming to PC soon, with sign-ups now open at Diablo2.com.
Blizzard preview some of the gameplay footage during the live stream, and assures while the game has been given modern graphics it will keep the original experience intact, keeping Diablo II’s systems and all its “quirks” according to the press release. There will be some few additions, including some highly requested quality of life improvements, which includes shared stash.
Diablo II Resurrected will include all seven classes and all of the memorable bosses as well. Classes include Amazon, Assassin, Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Paladin, and Sorceress. The developer doesn’t plan to change any of the game’s itemisation or balancing, meaning Diablo 2 will have the same replayable experience it had when it released 20 years ago, but with an updated look.
