The original version of Diablo II is often considered one of the greatest games of all-time, so there's a lot of excitement surrounding this new remaster. There are several quality of life improvements coming to the game, including updated online options. Fans can also look forward to cross-progression, which should be a big benefit to those that want to play the game on both PC and console. In addition to the main quest, players can expect to also see all of the content from the Lord of Destruction expansion, so there will be a lot of content included!
It remains to be seen whether or not Diablo II: Resurrected can live-up to the original game, but thankfully fans won't have to wait much longer to find out for themselves! It's unclear exactly when the beta will drop, but with the game coming in September, it shouldn't be too much longer. Blizzard should have more information in the near future.
