Diablo 2: Resurrected: Everything we know



Diablo 2: Resurrected is finally here, bringing 20 years of tech and videogame developments to the classic action-RPG. Some of the improvements are very welcome, including: new 3D graphics, surround sound, shared inventories, and even its beloved cutscenes built from the ground up.To get more news about Buy Diablo 2 Items, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

"This is not a remake," says Rod Fergusson, who's been in charge of all things Diablo at Blizzard since early 2020. "We're not trying to reverse-engineer the game and build it from scratch to look like D2. This is D2. This is the same core gameplay, the same story and tone, even the same voices of the same actors."

Diablo 2: Resurrected brings plenty of changes to the game, but its mission is still to capture that classic Diablo experience. Here's everything we know about Diablo 2: Resurrected, including open beta details, release date, and a list of what's changing in comparison to the original, ahead of its release in September.
3D graphics and Dolby 7.1: A whole new graphical engine which Blizzard takes pains to point out uses "physically based rendering" and entirely new animations, models and textures, and visual effects. Basically, all you need to know is it's in 3D and the dynamic lighting will gel with the new models. Expect 4K and high refresh rate support.

The surround sound mastering is new, but the sound effects themselves are not. "We're taking the atmospherics in the world up, so you can hear the wind blowing through the streets and the rustling in the jungle," Fergusson says. "But we're not changing those iconic sounds, like placing a skull into a socket or putting a potion into your belt. The things you have those Pavlovian response to, knowing it's Diablo 2. Those are the sounds you're still going to hear."

A shared item stash: Say goodbye to mule characters. You'll now have a shared item cache to use between multiple characters, so you won't need to devote other characters to the task of schlepping and storing gear. It's probably the biggest quality of life change over the original game. After the alpha test Blizzard also opted to increase the size further, meaning they'll be plenty of space for loot.
