Diablo 2: Resurrected
« on: February 19, 2021, 04:58:27 PM »
So D2. Remastered in full 4kHD. 3d/2d modes. PC/console. Cross-platform progression. Completely redone cinematics. 7.1 surround sound.

No changes to itemization/balance. Same 7 classes.

Who's hype?

Need fine print. Online only? Single player? Any/many quality of life improvements? Will it be an epic store exclusive as tony hawk was?

Iíve still got the original to do in mean time. May hype depending on details

This video filled in a bit of knowledge and I like what I hear https://youtu.be/6uoveNeQIc4

You can do this old school or new bits. And they arenít pulling a Warcraft 3 on us

Cross-progression suggests online only, since it would require characters stored online.

Epic? I can't imagine it would be anything but battle.net exclusive?

Isenhart's Case - they already said no changes to itemization/balance. It'll be there. LOL

Yeah, more details in the coming days, but it sounds like they have some good people making decisions who have been talking to the community.  Also no microtransactions!

This was the tony hawk news last year https://www.kotaku.com.au/2020/05/tony-hawks-pro-skater-epic-games-store-exclusive/

The official trailer.  Pretty pumped.  Also intrigued about the possibility of cross-play.

Any/many quality of life improvements?

"Shared Stash tab available to all characters on a single Battle.net account."

looks like a few other minor things but all else pales next to this one.

10x10 stash is an improvement, but when you are used to storing thousands of things in atma...

Auto gold pickup you can optionally turn on is good

if that definition of PC included mac, then yeah, but that's not what's listed on the blizzard page. i see "windows, nintendo, playstation, Xbox". blizzard used to be the rare exception that released games for mac and PC simultaneously. history, i guess.
