Diablo II Resurrected Launches September 23rd 2021; Pre-Order Details
There was quite a slew of announcements during the Xbox showcase, during the live stream Blizzard announced that Diablo 2: Resurrected will be coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on September 23rd 2021.
The multiplayer beta will be coming in August but only available for certain platforms. The beta will feature 5 of 7 classes which are Amazon, Barbarian, Paladin, Sorceress, and Druid. Players can enjoy up to 8 player co-op, or go it alone as a solo experience.
Blizzard originally announced Diablo 2 Resurrected earlier this year at BlizzConline 2021, confirming that it was a remaster and not a remake. We had a chance to check out the technical alpha in April, which we found stayed pretty faithful to the original, there are some features added such as being able to swap between modern and old-school graphics, shared stash and reworked spells. If you’re curious to know what we thought of alpha you can check out our Diablo 2 Resurrected Alpha Gameplay Impressions: How Does The Diablo 2 Remaster Hold Up?.
