Last month, we shared a video showing what a proper Diablo 2 Remaster could have looked like. Created by Michael ReznoR, that video showcased Diablo 2 in 4K, running with 60fps and with AI-upscaled textures.
Today, Michael ReznoR released another video for this fanmade Diablo 2 Remaster video project. Now I’m using the term “Diablo 2 Remaster” loosely here. No, ReznoR does not plan to release a Diablo 2 Remaster to the public. Instead, ReznoR used Deep Learning Neural Network AI and Advanced Motion Interpolation in order to improve a video recording of the original Diablo 2 game.
This time, ReznoR showcased 11 minutes from Diablo 2’s Sorceress. In order to capture this footage, ReznoR used Glide, PlugY, 1.13c, BH, Slash Diablo, D2MultiRes, EAX 3D and HRTF.
Furthermore, ReznoR has provided a comparison screenshot between the vanilla and the “remaster” version of Diablo 2. As you can see, the end result is amazing. So yeah, make sure to watch this video.
Lastly, in January 2020, we informed you about an AI-enhanced Texture Pack that was in development for Diablo 2. While its creator has abandoned his plans for a full-scale Diablo 2 Remaster, there is a demo for you to try. So, after watching the following video, we suggest playing a prototype version of Diablo 2 Remaster via this free tech demo.
