Diablo II: Resurrected speaks of the depths

  • "That is viewed as something to correct," says Gallerani. For Vicarious Visions, a 30-year-old game studio that Diablo 2 Resurrected Items was acquired through Activision Blizzard in 2005, revising Diablo II meant looking at Diablo II through the eyes of a game developer from the late 1990s. Diablo II wasn't famous just because it was difficult; it was famous because the players loved creating a challenge for themselves. They didn't get the most enjoyment from it.

    "Those sharp bits are what people keep in mind," Gallerani says. "Those are the times when people think"Oh my god Did you miss this particular thing?' and then people get together and come up with ways to do it."

    It's not that the creators kept all the exciting elements. Remastering a game with a new genre isn't as easy as re-creating the game as it was. Diablo II: Resurrected would liken, and even improve, the game that fans remember but not necessarily the game they played. There is no reason to be critical of the inclusion of features such as visually accessible options, more efficient online party-making, as well as an automatic gold pick-up. For anyone who, for any reason, feels uncomfortable with Vicarious Visions' gorgeous, modern 3D models, can switch the game back to the look of the 2000s.

    What's left largely not changed the game Diablo II: Resurrected speaks of the depths. Players continue to wander around Diablo II: Revisited's dark tombs and haunted forests with no direction of where they're supposed to be. In contrast to most current RPG, Diablo II: Resurrected does not have quest markers. Every time a player logs in to this game, its map will change. In the event that they have saved their games inside within the Den of Evil to have dinner, the next time they come back the game, they won't be in that Den of Evil anymore. It will have changed.

    "The game's strategy is to explore everything," says Gallerani. "It's quite different than bringing the map up in Google Maps and cheap d2r items following the dots."
