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!
Diablo 2: Resurrected is coming in two weeks on September 23rd (at 8 AM PDT) and we now have all 7 class trailer ready! So let's check them out, starting with the latest two from the Lord of Destruction expansion!
Which class will you be playing (well, as your first/main at least)?
We've seen the new remastered cinematics for acts 1 and 2 and they're pretty impressive, but now let's take a look at the new and the old side-by-side!
They immediately lose me when the opening scene spider is significantly larger, as I'm not a big fan of the critters, but the biggest difference I'd say is that Marius seems much more sane in the new version, as his more realistic face adds more depth, but also removes some overt madness we can see in the original. Also the weather has gotten better in Lut Gholein apparently. Other than that the improvements are huge and it's an amazing thing to look at a modernized version of one of my favorite cinematics ever.
Ladder Only Rune Words, Unique Items, and Horadric Cube Recipes that were restricted to Ladder rank play will be included in non-ladder multiplayer and single-player play in Diablo 2: Resurrected. A new patch will be released prior to Open Beta. Check out the official patch notes for more information.
Over the last week, we have seen much speculation and reactions from the community around the subject of Ladder play releasing post-launch. We wanted to take this opportunity to share that Ladder Only Rune Words, Unique Items, and Horadric Cube Recipes that were once restricted to Ladder rank play will now for the first time be included in non-ladder multiplayer and single player play.
We understand these items complement prominent builds and playstyles cherished by the community. Furthermore, we have heard the community ask to include these items into the single player experience for quite some time. Now players playing solo can also partake in the metas that have become popularized from the original multiplayer Ladder experience. Furthermore, single player will now also include access to the Pandemonium Event and Uber Diablo content.
To mitigate server impact and protect server stability of the game during the launch window, we plan to have Ladder rankings and listings to be implemented shortly after launch. This will enable players to have a fair chance to partake in the race that comes with the first season’s Ladder for Diablo II: Resurrected and not run into any possible launch window stability issues that could impede that experience. Once we have a more precise gauge on this front, we’ll notify the community of the exact date and time in September.
We hope this provides clarity on our intentions with the Ladder and related systems at launch. We look forward to sharing the Ladder start times with the community. Once we have it locked in, we’ll provide early enough notice so players can make the appropriate accommodations for their race to.
A new patch is being staged for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation prior to the Open Beta. Read below to learn more about the latest changes.
To share your feedback, please post in the Diablo II: Resurrected Beta forum.
Skill purchases now require separate button presses Developer Comment
We made this change because many players were accidentally allotting points to skills they didn’t intend to. We hope this change will mitigate that issue, especially since it’s more difficult for players to re-spec in Diablo II.
