Diablo 2 became a classic game and an inspiration for other developers trying their hand at the genre. After more than 20 years, Blizzard Entertainment studio decided to release a remaster of the cult game with additional improvements and modern graphics. Diablo 2: Resurrected includes both the main game and the Lord of Destruction expansion pack.
Diablo 2: Resurrected doesn't differ from the original in terms of storyline and takes us on a five-act adventure, in which we travel through the barbarian city of Harrogath at the top of Mount Arreat, the desert lands and settlements of Lut Gholein or Pandemonium Fortress. We still have one goal in mind, which is to get rid of Diablo - Lord of Terror, who was not finally annihilated, and now not only has possessed Prince Aidan, but also plans to liberate the rest of his infernal siblings in order to finally gain power over mankind.
Diablo 2: Resurrected begins by choosing one of the 7 available character classes, such as necromancer, amazon, barbarian, paladin and sorcerer, as well as assassin and druid. Each of them has different skills and their gameplay requires different tactics, as well as allocation of points in statistics. Only then do we begin the adventure in the world of Sanctuary, in which we fight against hordes of hostile troops as well as murderous bosses.
As well as the plot, so the gameplay itself does not differ from the original version of the game. Not counting a few improvements, such as more space in the inventory (10x10 grid areas, instead of 6x8), automatic gold raising, clearer interface, seasonal rankings and the ability to share items between our created characters, including those created on other platforms.
Diablo 2: Resurrected is designed to be played both solo and in online mode for up to 8 players.
Due to the need to upgrade the game to today's standards, this is where most of the changes were made. Diablo 2: Resurrected features full 3D rendering with dynamic lighting, supports 4k resolution, and has received revamped and improved spell effects, character animations, and step-by-step cinematics for higher resolutions. The audio has also been improved, with 7.1 sound quality implemented and immersive sound effects added. However, if players prefer the classic look of the game, there is nothing to stop them going back to 2D using the in-game option.
