Blizzard explains why the Amazon looks less sexy in Diablo 2 Resurrected

Diablo 2 Resurrected has received a completely revised graphic with the Remaster. The characters were also adjusted. One of the classes got a rather controversial change: the Amazon. Now the developer team at Blizzard expresses itself.

Get Better Performance in Diablo 3 (PC)
What has been changed? With the revision, all 7 classes from Diablo 2 received a new look. Including the Amazon. It was earlier as particularly sexy and her beauty stood in a contrast to her wild.

With ResurRected she lost much of this wild beauty. On the first pictures and also in the game itself, the new AMAZONE in Diablo 2 resurrected had a pretty masculine face (see title picture).

Her trains were harder, from the exotic beauty from 21 years ago not much to see. At the community, this change was more mixed, with some fans even compared them with the actor Willem Dafoe:

That says Blizzard: In an interview with Axios, the design Director Rob Gallerani talked about the background of the change. The sexualization of women in Blizzard games was criticized 10 years ago.

The current sexism scandal around the studio does not help. The decision was made because they wanted to deviate from the Victoria Secret approach. The most important point is that you wanted to make clear that the Amazon fights against the powers of hell.

In Diablo 2, you go against the princes of evil and that s exactly what it should be reflected in the characters. The team did not want the AMAZONE to look like would just come from a nightclub.

To male face? Adaptation in the trailer

What now looks like the Amazon? In a new class trailer, the face of the Amazon was once again shown differently and now the Amazon looks something feminine again. That seems to be quite good, with the discussion not flattening around the Amazon.

On Reddit, a number of fans discuss whether the changes are good or not:

A part she finds good and does not understand why some still complain.
Others found the debate superfluous from the front. Basically, the middle ground currently seems to be successful.

Whether there will be other changes and how your model finally looks like, you have to show yourself and we will probably only to release it to release.
