I wonder how much of the Diablo 2 manual still applies to the new version... I have it around somewhere, though i can't find it right now.



Well, my last pc would have run minimum easy enough but not recommended, but I can now.
Not sure what is needed for 1440p though.
The requirements are really high considering that it's an isometric hack 'n slash. My PC meets this requirements with ease (as long as I stick to 1080p), but not everyone will be happy. The new engine must be quire demanding. I hope that the posted requirements will let us play in 60 fps.

And here we have the release date. September 23rd this year. As I suspected the game will be released after the vacation period (on the northern hemisphere that is ;)).

In the meantime, someone released a mod that allows you to play at 60FPS, plus some other tweaks and fixes: https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx
View: https://i.imgur.com/uwnkFKi.mp4

Features
  • Turns the game into a well behaved DirectX 11 title on Windows 10 (also 7, 8 and 8.1).
  • High quality scaling to fit modern screen sizes, including widescreen aspect ratios.
  • High FPS mod using motion prediction, bypassing the internal 25 fps limit. Play at 60 fps and higher! (video)
  • Anti-aliasing of specific jagged edges in the game (sprites, walls, some floors).
  • Seamless windowed/fullscreen switching with (ALT-Enter).
  • Improved fullscreen: instant ALT-TAB and low latency.
  • Improved windowed mode.
  • Proper gamma/contrast.
  • Fixes a few window-related glitches in Diablo II itself.

I've pre-ordered the game. :) I just couldn't wait any longer. Thankfully the price is lower than for most AAA titles. Keeping this in mind I've decided to pick up a full package of Diablo 3 as well. 20 euro is a really good price for the game with all add-ons.

I'll probably play D2R on the release date (if the servers are capable enough ;)). I haven't played Diablo 2 for 18 years or so. This will be a very nostalgic trip to the past. Alpha test have shown that the game is in fine condition even months before the actual release. I think Blizzard has learned the lesson from Warcraft 3 Reforged and we'll get a beautiful remaster. I keep my fingers crossed!

be funny if i could import my lvl 70 odd barb into game... shame I can't remember anything about game. Besides watching people speed run it.

So is it pure or did they put a way to respec more often, that will be a test. D2, if you mess up a character, you start again. No 2nd chances.

Ignores Prime Evil Collection, I don't want 3 again.

Its not so cheap here but nothing is, I wait a while as no rush to buy, its a digital copy I assume

I never played D3 before, so it's a good deal for me. From what I've seen in other places D3 plus all add-ons is more expensive than in this bundle with D2R.

It's not cheap, but still the price is lower than the price for most AAA titles. At least in the EU area. And yes, it's a digital copy of course. I suspect there will be no physical release.

Would like to check it out sometime. I will probably wait for reviews because of how warcraft 3 remake turned out. I don't trust blizzard at all

The alpha tests have shown that the game is of high quality. I think that Blizzard took a lesson from Warcraft 3 Reforged and now will provide a great remaster. What's important the game is produced by former Vicarious Visions, which is known for quality remasters.
