Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the meticulous remaster of its timeless hack-and-slash action RPG classic, Diablo II: Resurrected, will be released on September 23 for PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Described as a “definitive remastering” of the 2000 original, Diablo II: Resurrected invites players back to the gates of Hell with high-resolution visuals (up to 4K/2160p), a remastered 7.1 Dolby Surround audio mix, and 27 minutes of faithfully recreated cinematics. Diablo II: Resurrected players who are feeling particularly nostalgic will be able to switch to the original 800×600 experience with the touch of a button.
While Diablo II: Resurrected takes full advantage of today’s modern gaming hardware, it preserves the engaging hack-and-slash gameplay that is as engrossing today as it was twenty years ago—but with a handful of quality-of-life changes, such as a larger stash for players to store more of their loot and automatic gold pickup for ease. Above all else, Diablo II: Resurrected remains true to the original, and with a touch of a button, players can transport themselves into the nostalgic past, playing the game in the original 800×600 experience.
