What is in the Remaster? At Diablo 2 Resurrected it is about the original Diablo II and the extension Lord of Destruction, which receive a Remaster.

Thus, Blizzard wants to pick up veterans who want to play the Role Play classic again in beautiful with new graphics. Players who never played Diablo 2 and were torn out because of the graphics, with the Remaster, get the chance to enjoy the scary storyline with modern graphics.

Difference between Remake and Remaster
For earlier Leaks to Diablo 2 was the speech of a remake. But Diablo II: Resurrected is a Remaster. A Remaster is technically seen on the basic framework of the original game. It is optically improved and brings a few optional comfort functions.
On the other hand, a remake would be one of the reasons developed by the new version of the original title.

That says Blizzard: While Diablo 2 was based on 2D sprites, it continues in ResurRected with physically based 3D rendering. Join in:

Dynamic lighting
Revised animations
Revised magic effects
Resolutions up to 4K are supported
All Cinematics (a total of 27 minutes) were recycled from the ground up
The sounds and soundtrack have been revised to support Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound

What is in it? In Diablo II Resurrected, you play the file 1 to 4 from the original part as well as act 5 from Lord of Destruction.

This improves: Blizzard completely retains the core elements such as gameplay and systems. But there are a few quality-of-life improvements that players demanded. Among other things:

A shared booty, so you have access to all characters
Lightweight item comparison: Look quickly, how well an item is compared to the land
Automatic collection of gold: How to know that from Diablo 3, your character collects the gold from the ground itself, without your extra click
Improved matchmaking: You can join friends in the friends list quickly

However, if you prefer the old fame, you can also disable features like automatic gold picking. New content like chapter does not offer the Remaster.

By the porting on consoles Diablo 2 also receives a controller support for the first time. This does not only change the control, but even the way your skill uses. This even fixes the feature a big problem of the PC version. In our advice you will find the best controllers for gambling:

So it goes with Diablo 2 Resurrected after the release

Veteran warns new players Beta does not reflect Diablo 2 Resurrected

The Action-RpgdiaBlo 2 Resurrected is for many new players for the first time you enter Blizzard’s classic. But veterans know the game for 20 years. One now says that the new players should be clear that the finished game is very different than the beta. Because the beta show only the lame beginning of the games, the gameplay in the finished game will be much faster.

That’s the situation:

  • The Studio Blizzard recalls his old Hit Diablo 2 (2000) old Hit Diablo 2 (2000). The first betas to Diablo 2 Resurrected already ran: However, you could only play act 1 and 2 and only in the first of the three difficulty levels normal. There were also only 5 of the 7 classes available.
  • The reactions to the beta are split. Some are excited about the new edition, they have wished for years to dive back to their beloved world and now enjoy the contemporary look. Others say: Some things are preferred to leave in the past.

Diablo 3 Imperius vs Diablo
* A veteran explains new players now, they should not believe that the full game Diablo 2 Resurrected is like in the beta.

Beta is much slower than the finished game – so many mana potions

What are the differences? The Reddit User Calimonium says he knew that many people Diablo 2 play for the first time and they have to tell them:

Diablo 2 drastically plays differently if you have completed the normal mode.

At the moment only act 1 and 2 are playing in normal mode. This brings some differences of the beta to the finished game on high levels of difficulty:

  • The speed is extremely slow
  • The character builds are only mediocre
  • You would consume too much mana and you have to always swallow mana drinks

In the finished game there would not be this problem at high levels:

  • The mana regeneration would be better. A rune word and Mana Leech would the rules
  • In addition, the itemization in Diablo 2 will be much better from Level 40-62 – then also draw the speed of the game clearly

Game experience depends strongly on whether one reads guides

This is how this is discussed: On Reddit one discusses whether the statement of the thread creator is really that way.

One gives way to consider: Who not informs you and Normal continues, for the tempo in Diablo 2 ressure ratred relatively slow as in the beta.

The speed of the game draws considerably when you use the good skills and good items, but if you are a new player who does not read guides and not trying to get everything to Min / Max, then you come with a very different game Experience out. […] It is more appropriate to say that Diablo 2 opens and gives players much more options to play it as in the first steps.

Reddit User Funkfyfritter

How quickly or slowly you want to play Diablo 2 ressurected, thus also depends on the player and how much the willing to invest time in Diablo 2 to learn the gameplay mechanics.

Diablo 2 becomes much deeper and more complex after the beginning

This is behind: For many hardcore players from Diablo 2, the charm of the game is that your character becomes increasingly stronger. One gathers more and more items, optimizes his build always to get the last few percent out.

This is ultimately a self-closed cycle: you collect better loot so that you will find the next Baal-Run a few milliseconds faster to find better loot.

For multiplayers, the GAME unfolds its stimulus only if you get significantly more options in MID and endgame, choose from many different skills and items. The beta correctly represents the beginning of Diablo 2, but not the playful depth, which develops the game later, if you look for it and hit this path.

How Diablo 2 Resurrected plays for you, it also depends crucially on what class you choose:

Diablo 2: Resurrected – Which class is your favorite?

Diablo 2 Resurrected Preview pretty modern and still very old

AUTOR: Christopher Blair

After Denalpha of Diablo 2: RESURRECTED we have now made the beta, but from a different viewing angle.

Now they are already over – the two beta-time slots in which we were Diablo 2: Resurrected Zocken. A balance act between modern wishes and outdated gameplay. Whether Blizzard and Vicarious visions of this spaghat succeed, could not quite resolve in the beta, but the game promises a lot.

For years I have not moved a mouse pointer to the Battle.Net Launcher. All the more excited I was when I was finally allowed to play the beta for new editions of a classic. On the first day, of course, there were extremely many server problems, as many players wanted to go into play at the same time. But the topic was raised more than it really is. With us, there were significantly fewer problems with the connection from the second day. And compared to the release of Diablo 3 was a joke.

After all these years

Right at the beginning you will be welcomed with the well-known intro and goes into the character selection, which still convinces with a beautiful variation today. After all the years you have the feeling just started the old Diablo 2. Because really much on the interface was not changed. But it would not be too much demands to adapt at least the menus of modern needs. On the other hand, it should only be a remaster that captures the charm of the original. In the beta there were only the multiplayer mode and not to test a actual singleplayer mode. So I chose the barbarian, with whom I was already allowed to sneak together with my friends through the hordes of the undead. Already when entering Tristam, I was not only welcomed from memories, but from the first barges of other players. Everything seems to be the old one. In the beta, however, only the two first chapters were available. Completely sufficient to make a picture before.

The good old times

For modern gamers, the entry into Diablo 2: Resurrected could be a bit more difficult. After 21 years there are already some new genre standards that are painfully missing here. For example, the character development and lack of skill strip initially ensure frustration. The strongly limiting inventory, which does not even offer a sorting function, I had completely displaced. As Diablo veteran, however, I have been able to snug me quickly. The question is whether younger gamers will have patience. Maybe it would have been well here to offer the modern comfort optionally.

Visual hell

What you miss Diablo 2 was a real beauty. Never before did the game look so beautiful. Even the rendered sequences have been recreated and the whole thing even in up to 4k. The title must not hide even after 21 years before the new plays. In any case, the whole atmosphere of old gamers as well as newcomers should still be excited today. Fans, which are only with Diablo 3, can also discover a step far thus to discover the origin and history of the brand.

Religious question

However, the right Crux on the thing will be to the extent to which you can set yourself on the present archaic gameplay. As a player of the original, I was able to get used quickly after a while and would now even have many innovations that I would initially wished. Without a doubt, however, some quality-of-life improvements would be like other remasterers needed to make a better game. There is still something to be released to the game and all beta characters are then reset. Until then, interested parties can already look at some of the old new guides and possibly plan Blizzard and Vicarious Visions still a lot for the future of Diablo 2: Resurrected.

The first beta session of Diablo 2: Resurrected is about to conclude and finally I can give my initial impressions about the game. With the disaster that turned out to be Warcraft 3: RefoGed, lifelong fans are understandably concerned about the state of the Remaster of Diablo 2. After all, we are talking about a game that is probably perceived as more gender defining than Warcraft 3 .

As it is, Diablo 2: Resurrected is not RefoGed. Apart from a couple of warnings (of variable importance), it seems that the game is not going to be a joke of the innocents out of season.

Impressions beta resurrected from Diablo 2: returning to hell in glorious 4k

It is not exaggerated to say that Diablo 2 has inspired a whole generation of ARPG, including games like Path of Exile or Grim Dawn. It was no surprise to me then, see that the main gameplay of the title is still maintained incredibly well for current standards. Kill demons, collect booties, level up, repair your team, deliver missions, rinse and repeat. The style of looter game is a proven and proven formula: one that Diablo had already dominated two decades ago. No adjustments have been made in particular to those aspects of the game, and I do not think anyone can argue that changes are required anyway.

The cutting scenes, which were already considered excellent at that time, rejoiced from scratch for Diablo 2: Resurrected, and everything is clear and up to modern standards. While game graphics may have aged a little bad, there is an aspect of the game that absolutely has not done it: the soundtrack. The OST de Diablo 2 is still a great moment even twenty years later, and it sounds better than ever in this remaster. The battery and guitar riffs do a great job by subtly setting the tone of the game, it is difficult not to spill a tear or two of nostalgia.

Conestick and reworked cinematics.

Playing Diablo 2: Resurrected also reminded me that the game had a skill mapping system a little strange, that the last ARPG ended up abandoning. Here, assign two skills to the click and right mouse clicks, and … that’s it. Usually, left click will have normal linked self-assault, while right click will have another skill. To change skills, you would have to use a combination of assigned keys and then use right click again to make use of said skill. The system does not feel as natural as having skills linked directly to different keys, before you can use them directly, but I really can not blame Blizzard for wanting to stay with such a central aspect of the original game. Adjusting that would have stolen the fans something that makes Diablo 2, well … Diablo 2.

Glasses tinted in red: where resurrected stays short

Not everything is rosy in the depths of hell, and this is especially true for Diablo 2: Resurrected. On my first day of play, European servers suffered a great impact just one hour after the beta began. First I started as a druid, and when I arrived at level 4, BNET servers took me out of the game. I could not reconnect with my character at all, and even create a new one did not help. It seemed that most other EU players were experiencing similar difficulties, something I confirmed after visiting BNET lobbies. My solution was simply relaunching the game in na using the NA server: it is not ideal, but at least the game was running. It is not uncommon to see difficult launches for online games, but problems do not end here.

Throughout my experience with Diablo 2: Resurrected, I had problems of latency of different degrees. The visiting record was not always worked, and my character occasionally teleported on the other side of the screen. I’m not sure if the overloaded servers contributed to this, but I thought that the fight was a bit loose sometimes. I could swear that I was pointing at some of the mobs correctly, but in reality nothing was happening on the screen. The problems of latency and delay were definitely the greatest complaints of my experience, and I sincerely hope that this is not part of the final product. Hopefully, Blizzard can solve this before the next beta phase arrives.

The servers of the EU were going through the drain.

omitances that scratch the skull: no local multiplayer, no ladder

Now is the time to address another elephant in the room: the lack of multiplayer TCP / IP. Blizzard does not allow the game to have any local lobby, due to alleged security problems. This was a fairly outstanding feature of the original devil 2 and is still an essential part of the PC games of that time. Removing this damages the game, and even if I personally have not used the function anyway, I’m sure many others would have done it. Blizzard also announced that there will be no competitive ladder in the launch, which only adds to the list of dear characteristics that will be missing.

Personally, I did not have any error that broke the game after playing for several hours, but some players have reported constant failures. If developers can solve most of these problems before the official launch date, the game is already in a much better place than Warcraft 3: RefoGed could expect to be.

I was not the only one who experienced these problems.

Balls of Fire and Sleeves

I played with the Druid, the Amazon and the Sorceress. The improved sound effects and graphic quality really served to make all the experience feel good, and especially enjoyed my time with the sorceress. Compatibility with the controller also works well, and perhaps the skill system feels even better when using it with a gamepad, instead of a keyboard and a mouse. However, the management of the inventory was a little tedious in this way, especially with the way the strip and potions work.

The aesthetics of the game respects the sensation of the original.

However, fortunately, there are some improvements in the quality of life. For example, you can now pick up gold automatically walking on it, which saves you a little effort in terms of clicking. There are also additional stash shared tabs with expanded sizes, so you can change items between your characters if necessary. There are also a couple of other settings of the user interface here and there, so that the experience feels a little less archaic than necessary. It is worth noting that you can actually omit those changes and simply play the game in your inherited version if you wish.

The beauty of a reinvented hell

I’m not trying to summon him, I swear …

One of the best characteristics of Diablo 2: Resurrected is, no doubt, the ability to switch between remastered and inherited graphics by simply pressing a button. When I used the function for the first time, I just could not believe how … dated in Diablo 2 it was really seen. The nostalgia glasses are powerful and in my mind I had recorded a version of the game that, in memory, looked significantly better. In any case, my brain initially thought that the remasterized version was closer than the original ‘real’ inherited aspect.

It is when you compare the two versions that you can really appreciate the new appearance of the game. Diablo 2: Resurrected walks by a very fine line, where the updated graphics respect the source material and give him that little momentum he needed. While it was a little disappointed with the caricature aspect inspired by Warcraft de Diablo 3, I am happy that Blizzard has found a way to keep the original devil atmosphere for resurrected. Character models are detailed enough, while somber lighting (especially in caves and darker areas) constantly reminds you of the kind of game you are playing. The transition between inherited and remastered graphics is perfect, and sometimes it has been a pleasure to change between the two to appreciate the change in quality.

Prints of Diablo Beta 2 Resurrected: I’m glad to be back

Diablo 2: Resurrected, in essence, is a good and faithful remastering of a timeless classic, and my beta impressions were largely positive. If Blizzard includes competitive stairs, local multiplayer and improved latency: we would have a true jewel in our hands. As it is, the pair of warnings may be sufficient to dissuade the fans of remasterization.

These are difficult times for the company, and Diablo 2: Resurrected could be only half a step forward when it comes to recovering some confidence from its base of players. The project is definitely much better than Reforged, and I was able to feel the passion of the Development Team of the corpses of each monster that I killed. The shadow of the recent demand for sexual harassment within the company, without a doubt, still rises over the heads of the development team. Maybe Blizzard first needs to get rid of his own demons to return to his glory days.

Until then, I will be anxious to play Diablo 2: Resurrected one more time, during the next phase of the beta.
