Fans of Diablo were likely kind of blind when Diablo and the Hellfire expansion hit GoG. some time ago. Get ready for a flat floor. Diablo 2 and the Lord of Destruction expansion are currently being recreated in 3D. Even better, Vicarious Visions is taking on the development of this remake. If you’re rocking a modern PC, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or 5, or Nintendo Switch, this remake is for you to enjoy. But it gets even better.
Diablo 2 is an icon
Blizzard released the sequel to their villainous title on PC in 2000. Fans quickly grabbed their copies and went to work to free the land of evil. The original game had 4 acts that you could play through. The “Lord of Destruction” expansion added a fifth act for players to conquer.
Diablo II is one of the few PC games that has had a near-permanent spot on retailer shelves over a decade after its release.
What can you expect in this remake?
According to VG247.com, we can expect a lot of updates in this remake. How does the 4K resolution sound? What about every 27 minutes of reworking the cinematics? New animations, revised graphics, improved audio quality (Dolby 7.1 Surround support) and more await us.
Diablo II will also take advantage of a feature that many other remakes from recent years offer. If you’ve played the remake of Command & Conquer or Wonder Boy The Dragon’s Trap, you know one thing special. You can switch between modern and retro graphics as you wish. It’s a cool option and I would like more remakes. Sometimes the retro option can bring back more memories.
Fans keep the game alive
One thing PC gamers can point out is better than console. Diablo II is a title that has received many mods. From brand new quests to new character classes and gameplay mods, the add-on world is full of interesting content.
The release date is not set in stone, a standard Blizzard act. Currently set to “later in 2021”. Don’t be surprised if this could slide into 2022.
