“To take advantage of today’s modern gaming hardware, Diablo 2 Resurrected supports up to 4K resolution and includes fully remastered 7.1 Dolby Surround audio,” Activision Blizzard said in a press release. “Those who still fondly remember the ambiance of the original game’s gripping storytelling sequences can also look forward to all 27 minutes of cinematics, recreated with stunning high-fidelity visuals that faithfully reproduce the critically acclaimed originals and match the spirit of the modernised game’s graphics.

“While Diablo 2 Resurrected takes full advantage of today’s modern gaming hardware, it also preserves the timeless hack-and-slash gameplay that is as engrossing and enjoyable today as it was twenty years ago—with a few quality-of-life updates Diablo veterans have been clamouring for, such as a larger stash and automatic gold pickup. Players experiencing teary-eyed nostalgia as they relive fond memories of spinning hammers and exploding corpses can seamlessly swap between the modern graphics and the original 800×600 resolution experience with the push of a button.”

Diablo 2 Resurrrected will head to Windows PC Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Switch on 23 September, Activision Blizzard today announced during the Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 Showcase.
