Diablo II remaster, Diablo II: Risen, is coming this year

Must read


Remember when it was announced that Vicarious Visions was heading for the Blizzard side of things? Well, that’s what they’re working on! At BlizzCon today, Diablo II: Resurrected was announced, and it’s coming this year. While that’s big news in itself, the game is also coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Diablo II: Resurrected includes controller support (on PC too!) And offers cross-platform progression. Whoa!

I had a lot of qualms with Warcraft III: Reforged and its new artistic choices, but what we’ve seen from Diablo II: Resurrected is incredibly reassuring. From the BlizzCon screening, the visuals are absolutely fantastic. Don’t like the new graphics? No problem, you can play around with the old look using a quick toggle. Diablo II: Resurrected can handle 4K resolution, features physics-based 3D rendering, new animations, lighting, textures and effects. All the cutscenes have also been redone, blow for blow.

Diablo II: Resurrected includes the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction expansion, so a whole new generation of players are ready to cultivate Pindelskin and Baal into oblivion. Ladders are coming back as well, so you can try to make your way to the top of the pack each season.

Slight quality-of-life improvements are also on deck, but it’s the same game we all know and love, including hostility toggles and ear-catching PvP. Players can toggle an option to avoid having to click on stacks of gold to pick them up, which should save several thousand wrists and fingers. Shared storage space is also on the deck, which will allow players to store their precious loot without having to worry about creating and jumping around “mule figures” to store their items.

A Diablo II: Resurrected Technical Alpha is coming to PC soon, so players can check out the new changes and submit comments. You can register on
