Blizzard and Vicarious Visions have released Diablo 2 Resurrected update 1.05 across all platforms. Available now on PC and consoles, you will need to install the latest patch to access online features.
As you’ll gather from the patch notes below, the team’s main focus has been combatting server and stability issues.
Diablo 2 players have been butting their heads against connectivity and login errors, sometimes rolling back character progress. For such a loot-focused game, it’s easy to see why fans are starting to lose their patience at the long-awaited remake.
Currently, Blizzard is continuing to investigate issues reported by players.
D2R – As part of our continued investigation into the issues over the past few days, our team will be actively monitoring and reacting to the situation during peak play times and there may be periods where logins or game creation are limited.

Diablo 2 Resurrected Update 1.05 Patch Notes
- Improvements to character deletion to help users from accidentally deleting their characters.
- Various crash/stability fixes
For those waiting to dive back into their Diablo 2 playthrough, unfortunately there’s nothing to do but waiting for the server maintenance work to be completed.
Diablo 2 Resurrected is a complete remake of the iconic Blizzard RPG, out now on PC and consoles. In our review, we scored it a not so diabolic 8 out of 10:
“Diablo 2: Resurrected is a great remake of a real classic. It looks and feels just how I remember it from playing in the early 2000s, but with cooler lighting and sharper graphics. It has a few control issues with when using a controller, but it’s still a must-play for anyone who used to play it and misses it, and a strong recommendation to anyone else who likes action RPGs, dark and grim atmospheres, or who just wants to experience a treasure from the now distant past.”
If you’ve already blitzed through Diablo 2 Resurrected and want to find your next dungeon crawling fix, we’ve created a list of the best games like Diablo. There are some greats picks including Path of Exile and non isometric RPGs such as Borderlands 3.
In the meantime, we recently delved into the Diablo series. Our feature explores how Blizzard created the first games in what would become a flagship PC franchise, what features were ultimately left on the cutting room floor, and how Diablo 3 managed to recover from its train wreck of a launch.
