A couple of days ago, we informed you about the upcoming announcement of the Diablo 2 Remaster, Diablo 2 Resurrected, at BlizzCon 2021. And today, Reddit’s PracticalBrush12 has shared the first details about it.
Now before continuing, we should note that PracticalBrush12 is a reliable source. After all, PracticalBrush12 has previously leaked the partial Nintendo Direct lineup and Monster Hunter Rise. So yeah, this appears to be the real deal. Still, we suggest taking everything you are about to read with a grain of salt.
According to the leaker, the Diablo 2 Remaster is basically the original game running under Blizzard’s new 3D graphics engine. As such, the gameplay will be identical to the original version. Moreover, Diablo 2 Resurrected will allow players to switch between the new and the classic graphics. Additionally, the game will have dynamic lighting (though it will still be dark as the original).
Furthermore, the game will have remastered audio and cinematics. The leaker also claimed that there will be shared stash, advanced stats summary, toggleable auto gold pickup and controller support.
Lastly, players will be able to use the “Shift” key in order to compare items. There will also be cross progression, and the game won’t force you to be online to play (though it will require a one-time online activation).
Blizzard will officially reveal Diablo 2 Remastered in a few hours, so stay tuned for more!
