Fans Reveal Diablo 2 Tech Demo Running on Unreal Engine 4

A fan demo of Diablo 2 remaster was published on Youtube channel Upside Down, dealing with 3D graphics. It was created using Unreal Engine 4.

You can watch demo on the Upside Down channel on Youtube.

Stefan Ivanov is a professional 3D artist running a small channel on Youtube called Upside Down. He publishes tutoials and results of his work on the platform. On June 19, he boasted of his fan remaster of Diablo 2. The presented fragments were created using Unreal Engine 4, presenting refreshed locations from the fourth act. Photoshop, Substance Painter, Zbrush and 3Ds Max 2021 were also used in the creation of the video.

The demo is not available for download, so the project can only be rated based on the gameplay mase available to the public. The slow animations and static combat model are noticeable, but given the fact that the whole thing was made by a small group of fans headed by Ivanov, the results of the work can be considered noteworthy.

His adventure with journalism began with a personal blog, the name of which is no longer worth quoting. Then he interpreted Iranian dramas and the Joker, writing for cinematography journal, which, sadly, no longer exists. His writing credentials include a degree in film studies, but his thesis was strictly devoted to video games. He has been writing for Gamepressure since March 2020, first writing a lot about movies, then in the newsroom, and eventually, he became a specialist in everything. He currently edits and writes articles and features. A long-time enthusiast of the most bizarre indie games and arthouse cinema. He idolizes surrealism and postmodernism. He appreciates the power of absurdity. Which is probably why he also tried soccer refereeing for 2 years (with so-so results). He tends to over-philosophize, so watch out.
