A few days ago, Blizzard revealed the official remaster/remake of Diablo 2. And yesterday, YouTube’s Candyland has shared a comparison video between the original and the upcoming remake/remaster of Diablo 2. This video shows how close to the original game Diablo 2 Resurrected will be.
Now I used the term “remake” here is Diablo 2 Resurrected will be using a new 3D graphics engine. Blizzard has created new 3D models for all sprites. Not only that, but the team has implemented a new dynamic lighting system. Thankfully, gamers will be able to switch between the original/vanilla 2D and the new 3D graphics.
Diablo 2 Resurrected seems identical to the original game. It will have the same dark style, although the original feels a bit brighter. Still, this upcoming remaster/remake looks great, even in its pre-alpha state.
Blizzard plans to release this game later this year. You can also find here its official PC system requirements.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
