Diablo II Resurrected is a remake of the old classic game Diablo II, from 2000.

Overview

Resurrected is a remastered edition of Diablo II and the expansion Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. All graphics had been updated, transferring them from 2D sprites into 3D assets, that can be toggled between the new remasterred version and also the original look by a simple press of a button on your keyboard or controller. There had aswell been a camera with a zoom feature been integrated and a whole remaster of the cinematics.

The original gameplay had been retained but runs now on 60 FPS. A cross-progression support, to continue playing on your console and then switching back to your PC is being added. The game can of course be played online and offline, as same as the original version. The stash will be shared with all of your characters, of your account. Sharing between differet modes will not be possible, such as ladder / non-ladder, softcore / hardcore, online / offline.

Gold will be able to picked up automatically, but can be disabled within the settings. Items can be compared, to easily detect the stats and attributes differences between an item in your inventory or stash and the one you are currently wearing. This feature might only be available on the PC by holding the shift key.

Development

The first development began in 2020, after the release of Warcraft III: Reforged. Team 1 was assigned to the project. Since the mistakes that had led to the bad experience of Reforged wanted to be avoided, Team 1 had been removed from the project and the development continued with Team 3 and Vicarious Visions.

Artwork

Team 3 did worked on the idea of remastering the game in 70 to 30. Where 70 means what is untouched from the original and 30 refers to the new artwork. A better renderer had been created to transist the 2d sprites to 3d models.

The team also took their inspirations from Blizzard North, with real-world locations to get inspiration for the ingame locations.

Item Trading

As within Diablo II, in the remastered version Diablo II Resurrected it will be possible to trade items ingame and therefore also be possible to Buy D2:R items through our store.
