Diablo 2 fans, here is something really special for you today. Back in December 2018, we informed you about the Median XL overhaul mod for Blizzard’s classic hack n slash RPG. And today, we are happy to report that this mod is available for download.
Median XL is described as the most popular Diablo II overhaul modification, and an action RPG with extensive endgame content, deep character customisation and challenging gameplay. This mod promises to offer thousands of new items, new skills for all classes, and multiple improvements to the Diablo II engine.
Diablo 2 Median XL features an enhanced crafting system, new monsters, new bosses and new areas. It also modernizes the Diablo II engine by adding many features found in modern games such as a new and bigger inventory, support for high resolutions, boss events, individual cooldowns, map reveal, new hotkeys, notifications, and the ability to automatically pick up items.
This is what the team had to say about the new areas that are featured in it, as well as the mod’s Endgame.
“Median XL features dozens of new locations which host multiple endgame quests where the map layout actually comes into play. Always loyal to the Diablo lore, you can find new areas such as Heaven and the realms of Hell, the new town of Caldeum and fallen cities such as Duncraig, Viz-jun and Toraja. One quest has you travelling back in time and playing as Diablo while trying to defeat the Bear Tribe in order to break into the Worldstone Chamber.
Once you have completed the main story the Endgame begins. Unlike other ARPGs this does not involve killing slightly stronger versions of the same monsters you’ve already beaten over and over again, but is a completely new and challenging experience. Our endgame content features over 40 new quests which involve testing your character and reflexes against deadly bosses, efficiently farming new areas and uncovering many secrets. “
Those interested can download Diablo 2 Median XL from its official website.
