Diablo 2: Remaster leaked shortly before BlizzConline launch

The Diablo 2 Remaster is really coming

The actually very reliable leaker “PracticalBrush12” announces that we are getting a remaster of Diablo 2. Blizzard is said to have transferred the original game to a new 3D engine with 60 fps.

That means we get Diablo 2 as we know it, only it should look much better and more modern. It should even be possible to switch back and forth between the old and new graphics at any time. Sounds and the cutscenes have also been revised. There is also a shared stash, i.e. a common warehouse for all players.

An extended statistics overview that makes counting unnecessary, optional automatic gold collection and controller support are also included, according to the leak.

The remaster of Diablo 2 should appear on “all major consoles” and even for the Nintendo Switch. Other innovations include a simple comparison of items, dynamic lighting and cross-progression. Diablo 2 should continue to be as dark as the original. You will probably have to register online to play, but you can then play offline if you want.

Allegedly the registration phase for the technical alpha will start during BlizzCon and the release of the remaster is planned for this year. How secure the information is cannot be said.

After the leak on WoW: Burning Crusade Classic on February 18th, it seems likely that we will really see a Diablo 2 remaster on BlizzConline. From today at 11 p.m. we will know more.
