    I'm playing it and it's a pretty good effort in terms of graphics. But it seems like they abandoned it the moment it released. There are no new game modes, no announcers (there are a bajillion Korean ones, though), no extra content alla Nova missions, no co-op, nothing. That's why there's no revival.

    Pinballing between slaving away at new WoW/Overwatch content and hustling out Remasters?

    What an unfortunate fate.

    So, they're going to break the original game and force owners of it to download 50 gigabytes of remastered garbage? Can't fucking wait dude.

    A good D2 remake should feature more endgame content. Apart from the schizophrenic act design, the lack of varied endgame is what has kept me away from Diablo 2 outside of a playthrough on normal difficulty.

    Did any of their remakes bring anything more than questionable graphics updates?

    Probably for the best to abstain from adding anything new. Do you seriously expect modern day developers to make good content that fits in Diablo II?

    What I wish from this remaster, just pretty graphics not changing the art direction to some fucking horrible cartoony blizzard shit, fix the rune duping exploit on multiplayer and thats it.

    What we will get, "REBALANCE", Horrible cartoony shit art direction on the game and they wont fix the rune duping

    Likely just hype to lure people back in for D4. I wouldn't expect much. Look to Starcraft HD for how it will turn out.

    Modern day developers or old day developers doesn't matter. I seriously doubt that anyone would make new endgame content for D2 when D4 is on the way too.
    I'm fine with new remake as is as long as it won't land on its face like Reforged. So tired of waiting for D2 GoG release..

    AoE2 Definitive Edition featured new content on release, has an expansion on the way, and it's an older game than Diablo 2. Blizzard want to do the bare minimum, however. Well, not only they, AoE1DE is still a mess, has no new content, and units get stuck on the terrain constantly. They tried to change things up for Refunded, but yeah, we all know how that abortion turned out.

    Well they're bringing critical role on blizzcon to sell themselves out for a diablo one shot adventure. They seem to always do these one shots as promotions for announcememts or games like shadow of war.

    So blizzard either is desperate to fill in blizzcon time slots or they think they've got some hot news this year.



    Betting its diablo 2 remaster unless its something really out of left field and announcement of a official 5e version of Diablo like back in the day.

    Don't games that are this old get released on sites for free?. I suppose this one is too much of a classic.

    All characters are ugly as fuck now. Especially females (of course). And amazon is now a straight up tranny.
