Diablo 2 is a masterpiece in the action roleplaying game (ARPG) genre, and many fans of the series are no doubt thrilled with the confirmation, after many years of rumors and disappointments, of Diablo 2: Resurrected. Yes, this time it’s really going to happen. Here’s everything we know so far about Diablo 2: Resurrected.
Blizzard aims to keep the feel of the original Diablo 2 but will add updated graphics and Dolby 7.1 surround sound. You can even switch back and forth between the updated graphics and the original sprite-based textures, just like in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Although Diablo 2 (and its associated expansion pack Lord of Destruction) is already 20 years old, it is perhaps the most influential game of recent years. The smell of Diablo 2’s kill-loot-repeat action-RPG mechanics is closely related to Destiny 2 and Borderlands, while the randomly generated dungeons and monster Hordes can be felt in Hades. And that’s before we even considered clones like the Torchlight and Dungeon Siege franchises.
After the more colorful adventures of 2021’s phoenix-like Diablo 3 (which had a famously troubled launch before updates made it a beloved part of the franchise again), we know Blizzard wants to tap into the darker energies of Diablo 2 for its upcoming successor Diablo 4.
Diablo 2 Resurrected will be released in 2021, but a definitive release date has not yet been announced. The Diablo 2 remaster will be available on PC (as you would expect), but also on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch for the first time ever.
