Are you excited to return to Tristram with vastly improved graphics? If so, Diablo II: Resurrected is coming on September 23 on multiple platforms: PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.

Ever since Blizzard announced the remastering of some of their classic games, many people cannot wait for the improved fan-favorite Diablo II.

Over the weekend, the company has announced that Diablo II: Resurrected is launching in September. While the game is still a few months away, there will be a multiplayer beta testing phase in August.

The beta will allow you to play five of the seven classes in the game: the Barbarian, Paladin, Amazon, Druid, and Sorceress. To be eligible, you have to preorder the game.

What to Expect in the Remaster?

The game was originally announced back at BlizzConOnline earlier this year. Although most people were expecting it to be a remake of the original, Game Executive Producer Rod Ferguson reiterated that it will just be a remaster of the classic.

Here are some of the things that you can expect:

  • Remastered visuals
  • Optimized for Xbox Series X/S
  • 4K at 60 FPS supported
  • Cross-progression enabled
  • Up to eight players can join in a multiplayer co-op mode
  • Added controller support for PC users

One of the most interesting things about the remaster is the cross-progression. Since the game can be enjoyed on multiple platforms, you can play on one console and continue where you left off on PC. This is possible because your progress is linked between registered devices using the game account. With support for third-party controllers on PC, you can use your Xbox game controller on the PC.

The standard edition will cost $39.99, while the Diablo Prime Evil Collection will cost $59.99. The latter will include the base game, Diablo III Eternal Collection, and some Diablo III cosmetics.

Diablo II: Resurrected will officially launch on September 23. Are you excited to play the remastered edition of this classic game?
