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.

    Considering you can use thumb sticks to move, I'm guessing this also means WASD movement may be a thing. It would be a welcomed addition. So many times in D2 I kept picking crap up while trying to move because it was mouse only.

    I am not in any way trying to sound negative, I'm just curious: is it just me, or D2R does have less gore & blood splatters (e.g. while chopping mobs, or upon their death)? Seriously, I'm stunned by the amount of work & polish devs seem to put into it, and environmental gory-ness feels just the same as in the original D2, but I swear it feels like in-combat blood splatters were dumbed down a little. But I'm not 100% sure, so take that with a grain of salt.

    It's hard to believe that this game is 20 years old. To give perspective, the 20 year olds right now were just being born when this game came out. And if you look at 20 years before this game came out, we're look at the start of the 1980s decade (and who knows what they were playing then!) I was in middle school when this game came out, so now I feel old lol. My favorite class is the paladin, and when I found the Herald of Zakarum for the first time, I thought that was the best day of my life haha.

    Fuck as long as these sons of bitchs don’t get greedy on us and don’t let players to buy items that’s why kills the game.

Please my dudes keep it free to play so it’s all bit skill and time.

    I'm impressed with Blizzard's dedication to keeping their old games alive. I mean, the pessimist in me says these remakes are purely a cash grab since they can't seem to make anything new with the same level of quality. But even then, the end result is a good thing. Not going to be playing this though. I got my fill of D2 in the early 2000's. Patch 1.10 pretty much killed the game for me, and I'm quite sure they aren't releasing this based on 1.09. Still, can't complain about a new generation of gamers getting to play one of the greatest ARPGs ever made.

    when comparing the versions you'll notice in the Character selection screen that it differs way too much. The faces of the characters are not 1to1. You cant say we stay true to the original and then make the characters faces 20 years older. The Amazon lost her beauty and the Barb looking like a retired UFC fighter past his prime. Remastereing is like restoration work. It needs total commitment to paying attention attention to detail . Its not about putting your own twist onto it. Its about preserving the art of original creators. PLEASE FIX that for us Blizzard.

    If it seriously takes another 10 months that would be bullshit. Games nowdays do NOT need hype like that.

    You know, I'm kind of torn on this kind of stuff... I think it's a fun part of the game to have to manage your going back and forth between town and the dungeons with TP's in order to sell things, identify things, stash things, etc... And to give context to this, I'm the kind of person who really dislikes that in Diablo 3 they showed you DPS rather than an oldschool damage range and inexact attack speed... I think a lot of these newer games show you too much of the information and it feels more like managing an Excel spreadsheet than playing a game... But yeah I'm torn about that too..

    I am excited for this project but I'm gonna wait on some reviews. 5:00 "Doesn't require a consistent online connection." This is something I was hoping would stay like classic since having that option always allowed me to keep playing if my internet went out or if I was traveling but could play on my laptop compared to the messy debacle of Diablo 3. I would like to think If Blizzard could just separate Offline characters from Online/Ladder characters for the remaster then it should be well within their capabilities to allow D3 and D4 the same. Oh but of course they can only allow that sort of thing for consoles (Sorry Blizzard, you're not selling me much on your future titles compared to those in the past that didn't require a constant internet connection). That negative aside on their future titles, this remaster will more than likely have support for larger screen resolution sizes for either the new or classic look. Sure there's been some mods that partially address this but a remaster will do wonders to properly fit and expand the visuals for the game.

    @Byron Delgado No its a bug that i think starts occuring once you hit nightmare, havent played D2 in a long while but i installed it for my dad couple of weeks ago. He finally got to nightmare ( my dad is 74). But then when he got there some regular mobs just 1 hit leech all of his mana. Litteraly a fucking zombie in act 1 drains ALL mana in 1 hit. So naturally his game became unplayable and he had to start over which was a pain cause it took him more then a month to get to nightmare only for his game to become instantly unplayable. I look it up an multiple people were complaining about this bug as far back as 2004.

    Which bug is this? I remember the patch that rolled out synergies, also lowered the life and mana leech percentage of all items. It also prevented leech during pvp. Is this the bug your speaking of? If so then it’s a patch and not a bug.
