What isn't changing from first Diablo 2? from Ruify's blog


I inquired which consoles, but Diablo 2 Resurrected Items Fergusson says that's still in discussion (the smart money says Nintendo and Xbox are locked down, but Sony remains up in the air). It is a fully distinct game: Diablo 2 classic stays untouched. Diablo 2: Resurrected is another game. The multiplayer ladder board is now worldwide, but how everything works will be mighty familiar.

Access features: Blizzard added a colorblind/low-vision style and made changes to how text is displayed to make it even more accessible. Blizzard also pointed to control support as beneficial for accessibility.

The content: Resurrected includes Diablo 2 and the expansion Lord of Destruction. Same seven figures, same campaigns, no new modes or narrative. It's Diablo 2. Blizzard's developers said they had been tempted to include more stuff, but chose to concentrate on nailing the remaster. The original graphics and match code: You are able to switch to Diablo 2's classic graphics on the fly and then swap the brand new dimly lit 3D for the classic 2D sprites. That is because Resurrected is running on that initial code.

"The logic of the game and all the sprites and pathing and information of the gear, your drop rates along with your strike chance and proportions, and whether this monster chooses to bleed because you hit them, is still driven from the older game and it still runs at 25 frames per second," explained Gallerani. "So all your breakpoints for your stats are still also likely to be the exact same as they had been. In addition to this, however, we've got much more granularity using framerate, with directions that we render stuff out, with how lighting works, since it's essentially a 3D engine running atop. Consider it like a marionette: the individual pulling the strings would be the 2D game. But in this situation it is a blockier [puppeteer] plus an extremely lifelike puppet."

Original Diablo co-creator David Brevik pointed out on Twitter that they may need to make"small modifications in the AI radius and buy Diablo Gold ability ranges" because the first game was constructed for 4:3 screens.
