I still can't get over the fact Ve'nari has Ana's voice.

And Leah is female Commander Shepard, Zoltun Kulle is Grunt... They keep reusing many famous voices.

Hopefully they will deliver, at least it's different studio this time. But I wonder if they are going to change those characters models, or are we getting older looking Amazon and Druid...

Double-edged sword these days, pre-release orders often determine budgetary allocations on projects. Additionally, its been available for pre-order since the virtual BlizzCon that replaced the live one. They also fixed a lot of the issues while simultaneously offering refunds regarding WC3:R

This is the biggest factor. It's not like anyone that got WC3:Reforged was really screwed out of their money. Pre-orders are important for any industry to judge how they should staff it for launch. (servers, moderators, etc)

They handled WC3's failure well enough that it shouldn't stop you from pre-ordering if you're excited. You can always cancel them with zero risk prior to launch and they've also historically offered refunds.

Sure, it works fine but it's still missing features like ranked play, custom campaigns and player profiles, after over a year since release! But Reforged was a different story than D2:R, it likely suffered for having very limited dev time and not enough people on the team due to budget constraints. They promised way too much and then had to back down on these promises.

Doesn't seem to be the case with D2 having different team and likely a higher budget, although pre-orders probably won't affect any additional content post release. At least there are no plans for such thing, at most we might still get some patches when needed.

Fully agree. I doubt we see any post-release content other than bug fixes and maybe some small "balance" tuning related to that. Again, the absolute biggest thing pre-orders will help with is server allocation for stability at launch. It won't matter a month in, but it does help them plan that bubble.

Sadly, I’ll have to sit this one out as Blizzard have dropped Mac support from this release 😭

Having played the Diablo games since the year D1 came out, and having dedicated countless hours to D2 back in the day (completed Hell difficulty with every class), I’m disappointed to be left out this time.

(And before any haters jump in with admonitions to “Just install Windows”… I have a Mac for my work and can’t justify another computer, or the time and effort to manage another operating system.)

Will there still be a need to buy stuff online? Like armor and weapons. No one has answered this question.

There’s no online selling of armor and weapons in the original D2, so why would there be now?

Unless you’re referring to the terms-of-service-violating real money sales done by shifty third parties—which is a thing that happens to all online games where the trade of in-game resources is possible (and is not under Blizzard’s control).

I played the original D2 through hell difficulty on all classes without ever resorting to spending $ for anything but the game itself and the expansion—so buying gear from third parties online is certainly not a “need” in order to play the game well.

I played the game over 10 years and it is incredibly difficult to get what you need. Blizzard didn't stop the websites so I think people believed it was part of the deal. Every time Blizzard did a new season the websites were back in business. If the game will be the same then there is no need for me to bother.

      Blizzard have just released a new trailer for D2R, and we get to see the cinematic version of big red himself! The trailer features scenes from the act cinematics we haven't seen yet and it looks pretty great!
      We also heard about the official launch time for the game earlier, albeit for the US, but we're presuming that it will in fact be a global launch - meaning the game is coming 8 AM PDT/11 AM EST/5 PM CEST, as per Rod Ferguson, the Executive Producer of the Diablo franchise:

      Here's one of the most impressive PC case mods I've ever seen, as SpecVengeance really put a lot of work into making this particular computer VERY personal - to the game of Diablo 2! As the video starts off you would be forgiven for thinking "oh, it's "just" the logo on the front of the case, cool I guess", but there's a proper reveal coming right after, as we can see a Horadric Cube power supply and a certain someone's sword on the side as well!

      Just really really impressive all around, so let's hear from SpecVengeance about how it was all done and just what exactly is in there!
