KEY POINTS

  • Blizzard has revealed the system requirements for "Diablo II Resurrected"
  • The remaster doesn't require much when it comes to hardware
  • The game will be released later this year for various platforms

Fans of Blizzard’s popular classic role-playing dungeon crawler “Diablo II” will be glad to know that the game company has already revealed its PC system requirements – and they’re not much, unlike most of today’s games.

The full remaster of the 2000 classic – “Diablo II Resurrected” – offers a refreshing take on the very dark game. It uses today’s technologies to bring about revamped visuals and sounds while maintaining the old-school look and feel of the original game.

Blizzard didn’t change anything about the game’s characters and storyline. Players can still choose from the character classes that were made available via this installment, such as the Druid. They will still go through various locations, fight the same hordes of enemies, finish the same Acts and will still need to vanquish the same bosses that they once fought in lower-resolution.

The only major difference here is that in “Diablo II Resurrected,” character models look more realistic, worlds and locations feature richer detail and skills and spells are more stunning and enjoyable to see.

Blizzard also added a lot of features that were previously not found in the classic game. For example, whereas players were confined to the PC in the original title, the remastered version can be played using various platforms – and players might be able to continue with their progress regardless of the platform they use.

This feature, called “Cross-Progression,” means players can start their adventure using a PC, level their character up while on the road using a Nintendo Switch, slay bosses using a PS5 or Xbox Series X in another place and finish the game back on their PC at home.

What’s more, Blizzard announced that the remaster of the 2000 classic will offer support for game mods. While the details for this remain unclear at the moment, it’s a good thing to know that players will be able to introduce tweaks to their liking and might also be able to share these mods with other players as well.

All that said, here are the hardware requirements in order to play “Diablo II Resurrected” once it gets released:
