Warcraft III: Reforged came out last year and removed many of the original strategy’s multiplayer features, such as clans, LAN matches, and the ranking ladder. Players have been using them for almost 20 years and have been very disappointed. Blizzard Entertainment said it won’t make the same mistake with Diablo II: Resurrection.
“This is a different team, and that was before me”Rod Fergusson said on BlizzConline. He joined Blizzard Entertainment last February to oversee the Diablo series. PC Gamer spoke with Fergusson about Diablo II: Resurrected and learned that the reaction to Warcraft III: Reforged has influenced the work on the Diablo II remaster over the past year.
“One of the most important things was for the original Diablo II to remain the original Diablo IIFergusson said. – We were going to make sure the game stays. For example, if you’ve been using a terrible code-breaking mod that negates the security of the game, but this is your favorite playthrough, you can still use it because we’re not going to support that kind of mod in Diablo II: Resurrected. Separating the two games was an important part of this approach. “…
As previously announced, Diablo II: Resurrected includes the ability to switch to classic graphics. Blizzard Entertainment is committed to keeping the game intact in terms of mechanics and features. In the remaster, the company plans to close vulnerabilities that make it easy to introduce cheat codes and bots, but at the same time leave most of the code intact so that speedrunners and classic players are happy.
That being said, the classic version of Diablo II isn’t going anywhere, and you can use everything there as you could before.
“We were just focused on our goal of making Diablo II as authentic as possible for Diablo players.Fergusson said. – Both nostalgic players and new players. This is what we’re focused on. “…
Diablo II: Resurrected is due out on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch before the end of 2021.
