E3 2021 | Diablo II: Resurrected
Multiple consoles will experience HELL this Fall.
During the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 it was revealed that Diablo II: Resurrected will be coming to multiple platforms. The trailer shows the game in action, with multiple characters in various classes, destroying hordes of the undead with magical powers. Blizzard has stated that, if you’re playing on capable hardware, the game “supports up to 4K resolution and includes fully remaster 7.1 Dolby Surround audio.” There’s also the option of playing in the original 800×600 resolution.
The game was initially revealed at Blizzcon 2021 earlier this year. Resurrected will be a full HD remaster of the game’s original release as well as its Lord of Destruction expansion. However, Diablo 2: Resurrected is a remaster, not a remake as head of Diablo Rod Fergusson stressed at the initial announcementPlayers can also expect the same overview that Diablo games are know for while they play on PC and consoles.
This move is in response to a much bigger plan as Diablo is expanding to mobile, while the flagship Diablo IV is also in the works. Although there’s no official launch date. An open beta for Resurrected’s multiplayer will be available in August on “supporting platforms.” Aforementioned, Diablo II: Resurrected will be released on September 23rd on the PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
