Diablo 2: Resurrected is an action role playing game developed by Blizzard Entertainment and Vicarious Visions, and published by Blizzard Entertainment.
It is a remastered and updated version of the original Diablo 2, which was first released in 2000.
Lead graphics engineer Kevin Todisco also says people "are going to be happy" with the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions.
Seek the Dark Wanderer and come face to face with Diablo in an effort to save the world when the remaster releases on September 23rd.
Strike with a unique range of claw-based melee attacks, use the shadows to your advantage, or deploy mines and Sentries against foes.
Poison your foes to death, explode corpses to deal damage or summon a variety of monsters, like Skeletons and Golems, to fight.
Summon various beasts to tear apart your foes, use the forces of nature with various spells, or turn into Werewolf to wreak havoc.
The Dexterity-based class uses bows, spears, javelins and crossbows, alternating between close and long range in battle.
Mow down foes with Blessed Hammers and Smite; buff nearby allies with Defiance and Might; or reduce enemy defenses with Conviction.
Wield the power of the elements, igniting, freezing and shocking foes with a variety of spells, and cover great distance with Teleport.
Focusing heavily on melee combat and tanking damage, the Barbarian is recommended for those who want to Leap Slam into battle.
The classic cinematics have been enhanced significantly but still retain the cinematography and mood of the original release.
Blizzard's Adam Fletcher says he wouldn't expect either to be ready "right at launch," though more details will be shared later.
