Play OverviewPlay Overview

Diablo 2 Resurrected (2021) is an action role-playing game, following the events of the original game. Through 5 acts you must attempt to stop Diablo's return and related destruction. This takes you to different locations and settings to explore, battle and meet an extended cast of characters.

It can be played as a solo experience, or with up to 7 friends. Play starts in wilderness areas where you explore and enter randomly generated dungeons. You progress by completing quests for characters you meet. This takes you from a simple palisade fort to forests, plains, ancient monasteries and medieval fortress.

The combination of Dungeons & Dragons-style adventures, upgradable characters and all manner of items and loot to earn, make this a highly enjoyable game. The remaster updates the original game's visuals by offering modern 3D graphics. Cutscenes are remastered in higher resolution and the sound is now 7.1 Dolby Surround. The new game also lets you transfer items between your characters.

The series spans a number of games:
  • Diablo (1997) on PC, PlayStation and Mac.
  • Diablo II (2000) on PC and Mac.
  • Diablo III (2012) PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One.
