Diablo II Resurrected will of course have remastered HD graphics at 4K and 60 FPS (both for PC and next-gen consoles). Cutscenes and audio have also been redone and some changes have been added to improve the user experience, like loot sharing or cross-platform progression. Check out the game’s first trailer below:
PC requirements for Diablo II Resurrected
It looks like Blizzard has done a good job of keeping the classic dark and cruel atmosphere of Diablo II, even with the new 3D graphics. Among the new features are (as published by Blizzard):
- Remastered graphics: monsters, heroes, items, spells … everything is renewed.
- An epic story told through five different acts.
- Classic Gameplay – The same Diablo II you know, preserved.
- Updated support on Battle.net
- Intended support for cross-platform play.
We’re going to proceed to see what the system requirements are, although as always the developer says the title runs at 4K and 60 FPS resolution, but then they don’t specify what hardware you need for that resolution, this which is absolutely absurd because instead they give you what you need to play in 720p which nobody has done for decades.
|Minimum (720p)||Recommended (1080p)|
|Processor||Intel Core i3-3250
|Intel Core i5-9600K
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
|Memoria RAM||8 GB||16 GB|
|Graphic card||NVIDIA GTX 660
AMD Radeon HD 7850
|NVIDIA GTX 1060
AMD Radeon RX 55000 XT
|Storage room||30 GB||30 GB|
|Operating system||Windows 10||Windows 10|
As you can see, the requirements are picturesque to say the least. Between the requirements for 720p and 1080p, there is a huge leap in CPU performance, moving from old and slow processors to ones of practically a new generation. The recommended 16GB RAM requirement for 1080p gaming also seems exaggerated, and yet the graphics card requirements are quite light.
If you intend to play Diablo II Resurrected in 4K resolution, we recommend the same PC that Blizzard recommends playing in 1080p but just with better graphics, probably with an RTX 2060 or a Radeon HD 5600 XT you have. enough, because it seems like it’s a game that loads the CPU and RAM a lot more than the graphics card.
Will have support for mods, but no release date
In addition to the announcement and its surprising system configuration, Blizzard has already announced that the new title will support mods. They haven’t given more details just yet on how they’ll launch this support, but hopefully it won’t take long.
📜 MOD SUPPORT
Why would you want to handle this hell? Are you some kind of demon yourself? Misfortune! Yes, mod support will be here in Diablo II. I beg you to go easy on a poor old man.
