Diablo II Resurrected: Almost Perfect Launch Blemished by Constant Crashing

Diablo II: Resurrected was released several days ago, but what may seem like an exciting launch has been stained by issues, such as constant crashing, unable to launch the game, among many others.

Blizzard and Vicarious Visions teamed up to remaster one of the most iconic games in the 90s. The project has been in the works for a long time and developers have done a good job of adding new features, including accessibility options and cross-progression.

While everything looked good before launch, the community has experienced plenty of issues.

Constant Crashing

The most common and notable issue thus far is constant crashing. Players have gone to multiple platforms, even the game’s official forums, to complain about this problem.

Redditor @jtc769 said that the game would suddenly crash anywhere between 90 seconds to 10 minutes of playing. The problem is that there are no warnings or error codes before or after the crash. The Redditor would just be back on the desktop, left mystified. This is not even an issue with their PC specs, as they are well above the minimum requirements.

Another user has also experienced game crashes on Xbox One X. Redditor @Phenylalagator said that the game would crash even when doing the normal stuff, like opening the stash or picking up an object. They added that reinstalling didn’t help, and they’re hoping that this issue will get fixed soon.

Game Will Not Launch

Another major issue some players have faced is the inability to launch the game even though their machines are more than capable of handling it.

Redditor @Biglabron said that if the player is using a computer without AVX support, then they cannot run the game. They added that a sizable portion of the community cannot play Resurrected at the moment because of that.

User Matt90977 went to the official forums to report an issue as well. They said that the game won't launch after pressing the “Play” button. It would just say that it is launching but would ultimately do nothing. They are a bit more optimistic, however, since Blizzard is already aware of the situation. The company may release an update soon to fix these issues.

So, what can be done at the moment? PC players can start by updating their GPU drivers. Another tip is to switch between online and offline modes to find out which one works best.

Blizzard is already aware of these issues, and it is only a matter of time before they get fixed.

Have you played Diablo II: Resurrected? If so, have you experienced any crashing issues?
