Like what looks to occur each year, many of Blizzard’s big revelations for BlizzCon 2021 were leaked before the actual show. This included a remake for Diablo 2, which has now been officially confirmed. As announced during BlizzCon 2021, Blizzard is bringing back the highly acclaimed action RPG in the form of Diablo 2: Resurrected, which will be available on consoles and PC later this year.
Blizzard didn’t mention which specific consoles it will be released in the Diablo 2: Resurrected trailer, but the official site reveals it would be on the Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
It’s likely that the game is skipping the Xbox One, though that would be a peculiar choice since the game is releasing on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. More details should be arriving soon, but in the meantime, the Diablo 2: Resurrected official website unveiled more interesting details about the remake.
Diablo 2: Resurrected will feature completely revamped visuals, giving the old game a major facelift that aids it in better living up to the latest standards. It supports 4K resolution as well as cross-progression and other new Battle.net features.
Generally, it should be the same Diablo 2 experience that players remember back in 2000, but with a few quality of life enhancements and enhanced visuals. Players will have the choice to use the old visual settings as well, though.
Diablo 2: Resurrected was one of the biggest announcements in BlizzCon 2021, but it wasn’t the only Diablo-related news featured in the event. Blizzard also confirmed that Diablo 4 is adding a new Rogue class.
Coming back from the original Diablo game, the new take on the Rogue class will be just as customizable as the other Diablo 4 classes. Sadly, there is no Diablo 4 launch date in sight, so it’s uncertain when players will actually get to try the new Rogue class for themselves.
Blizzard also failed to announce the launch date for Diablo Immortal, which is bizarre as the game is in the public testing phase. It did show new Diablo Immortal gameplay footage, but it appears as though fans of the series will have to wait a little longer before they find out when they can play Diablo Immortal on their phone.
