Diablo 2 Resurrected release date and time for PS4, Xbox and PC
Blizzard fans are counting down until the Diablo 2 Resurrected release time across PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Nintendo platforms.
A dream for many, the remastering of the cult-favourite game is expected to see hundreds of thousands of fans return to the world of Rogue Encampments and Lut Gholein.
From what has been shared so far, much of the original experience has been kept, although there are plenty of tweaks and changes that gamers should know about.
And for those wanting to know the backstory, here’s the world setting for the Resurrected Diablo 2:
“From the darkness emerged an unlikely hero, one of many drawn to Tristram seeking to put an end to the plague of demons. He delved deep into the labyrinthine bowels of the Cathedral, slaughtering fiends and uncovering Diablo’s nefarious plot before coming face-to-face with the Prime Evil himself.
“The hero succeeded in besting Diablo but was forced to embed the soulstone within his own forehead to contain the Lord of Terror once more.
“Though the hero had prevailed over Diablo, the power of the soulstone overwhelmed him. A broken man who had been hollowed into little more than a vessel for Diablo, the hero took up the mantle of the Dark Wanderer and began journeying eastward.
“Thus, in the wake of destruction, does the story of a humble new hero begin: your story. Embark, if you dare, upon a journey into the suffocating darkness of Sanctuary where you’ll unravel the mysteries of the Dark Wanderer and unearth the fates of the Prime Evils.”
While the setting and story will remain the same, Blizzard has made some notable changes behind the scenes.
