There aren’t many games that leave a true legacy on gaming to come, but it feels like Blizzard has plenty of them. One of those genre defining games is Diablo II, which is widely viewed as one of, if not the best, dungeon crawlers of all time. With a deep lore, incredibly engaging combat and gothic art style, Diablo II has a legacy that most developers dream of. Now, 20 years after its original release, the game is coming back in the form of Diablo II: Resurrected.
While the game is billed as a remaster, Diablo II: Resurrected looks much more like a remake of the original game. New higher definition environments, character models, spell effects and animations make the game look much more like a modern game. The game’s cinematics have been been completely rebuilt shot-for-shot, while audio has been remastered to support Dolby Atmos.
The package also includes Diablo II: Lords of Destruction, the game’s much loved expansion pack, as well as full cross-progression support across all platforms. This also marks the first time Diablo II will be available on consoles, with Diablo 3 proving that the franchise can fit perfectly on a console.
Diablo II: Resurrected will release at an unconfirmed time in 2021 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. For more information, check the official website.
