Blizzard’s classic RPG is “Resurrected” in 3D!!

Considered the best in the series, the beloved classic action RPG Diablo II is given new life with updated graphics, 60 FPS and 4K display. Diablo II: Resurrection is a remaster of the original 2000 game and its expansion pack Lord of Destruction.

The remaster mainly updates the original game’s graphics and network functions and does not change any of its item systems or game balance. Resurrected overlays upgraded 3D models atop the original Diablo II‘s 2D sprites, and is designed to toggle between the legacy and upgraded visuals with a button press. Its cutscenes were also remastered. It also supports 4K graphics resolution and 7.1 Dolby Surround sound.

Blizzard added small convenience upgrades while leaving the core gameplay unchanged. The addition of a Shared Stash lets players transfer items between their own characters, as compared with the original game, which involved a tertiary “mule” character to facilitate the transfer. The remaster will allow players to import save files from the original Diablo II in local singleplayer and continue from that point.
