If you buy it on one platform do you need to buy it on another it order to play it on both systems?

I was hoping that if I owned it I owned it.

Gonna go out on a limb and say there is zero chance Blizzard would ever do that... >.>

Serious question: how many companies let you buy/licence a game and then play on ALL platforms? or more than 1?  not within an ecosystem but out of.

Besides Valve...? Probably none! Maybe an MMO or two out there.

Good news is confirmed!

https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/d3/t/diablo-ii-resurrected-ladder-patch-update/41016

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.



Annihilus and Torch won't need any mods to get now :D  Just a strong character woohoo!

Man, I wonder who the first among us will be to get a Torch and/or an Annihilus. Not me by a long shot, for sure!

If they made an infinite stash I would never play the original again.

EDIT:  I would bet on Grogs getting those those charms first.

i'm downloading the open beta, will see tomorrow if the computer will run it.

Quake new release of the 25 year old thing came out today, needed a Vulcan APi and wouldn't run.  Someone suggested an OpenGL start parameter so I got into that at least :)

Played an amazon a bit.

May fiddle some more this weekend but my initial impression: Nostalgia is what's gonna sell this. It definitely doesn't hold up in today's gaming world. Bummer, really.

I just downloaded and played through Den of Evil up to Flavie and the first way point.

It was fun and nostalgic. I like that gold auto-picks up. That's a great QoL improvement.

I finished Act 1 last night.  The Coutess' tower, Jail, and Cactacombs really look creepy and scary now, which is very cool.  I am still getting used to the movement and overall gameplay compared to the original.

I finished Act I.  The beta has made me pretty excited to play the game.  I definitely thought it was fun.

Andy was a very tough fight.  I do find the game to be very tough.  I might change my opinion if I had a proper build and equipment.  I was just randomly choosing my skills (playing a Druid).
