Blizzard Entertainment has announced the Diablo II: Resurrected release date, launching on September 23 on consoles and PC.
A trailer first announced the news during last night’s Xbox and Bethesda showcase, with other formats confirmed soon after. In case you need a quick refresher, the game will see the 2000 action-RPG classic & its Lord of Destruction expansion given a fresh lick of 4K paint & remastered audio.
Quality of life improvements are also on the table, including automated gold pickup and a larger stash. There’s support for 8 player co-op, cross-progression and even the ability to switch between old and new visuals at will.
There’s also set to be an open beta “on supporting platforms” this August, including five of the game’s seven classes. The Amazon, Barbarian, Paladin and Sorceress as well as the Druid will all be available to try. To get in early to the beta, you’ll want to pre-order the game, which also nabs you some nifty Barbarian blue war paint and leather armour in Diablo 3. Details on the dates of the beta are TBA this summer.
It was previously revealed that the remaster will also let you import your saves from the original. (If you’re on PC, at least.)
