Tomorrow evening, during the opening ceremony BlizzCon Online, We were able to see as a great comeback Diablo II In her remaster: Diablo II revived !
This remaster of course includes Diablo II, But also its extension God of Destruction.
Later that evening we were able to have a round table conference with a speedrunner Diablo 2 (MrLlamaSC) and 3 people from the development team including one Macular vision.
We were able to get various information, such as the fact that the visuals are now in 4k, sound in 7.1, and that all cutscenes have been redone. Of course, some aspects including the sound effects remain original so as not to lose the soul of the original game.
Note that there will be a seasonal system for the game with level 99 leaderboards and the servers will be “global”, so no EU USW USE etc. Which means that everyone can play with everyone. Co-op mode will allow you to play up to 8 players.
Progress will also be shared on the console, so you can develop on both platforms without losing your progress, because yes, the game will definitely be on the console.
