Blizzard have previously confirmed that Diablo II Resurrected will take advantage of new PC and console tech to deliver high performance, including 4K support. All visuals have been remastered including the heroes, monsters, environments, and spells.

They have also stated that Diablo II Resurrected will have cross progression support so you will not lose saves should you play the game on different platforms. There are enhanced gameplay elements, including improved ladder seasons which will have regular restarts so players can battle each other to the top. The user interface has been improved to so it should be easier to see and manage your stats. The Stash amount has also been increased, and there is a shared stash that can be used for all characters on a single Battle.net account.

There’s a lot of changes, in other words, but Blizzard are trying to still be faithful to the classic original release. We got to play the closed alpha test a little while ago, with Jim writing in our Diablo II Resurrected preview:

Diablo II: Resurrected has already got me reeled in. Having bounced off its sequel Diablo III a fair few times I didn’t expect its predecessor to somehow make a Diablo convert out of me. This comes down to the no-thrills focus on what these games do best – hectic bouts of visceral fantasy combat, battling demons and the forces of darkness as loots rains down around you. Diablo II: Resurrected will do a whole lot more than simply sate fans waiting for the eventual release of Diablo IV, that’s for sure.
