Blizzard has to be very careful how they are going to do everything about Diablo 2 Resurrection, because we all still remember how Warcraft 3: Reforged went (nevertheless I thought the game was quite fine). However, the first impressions are quite fine.
On BlizzConline they also indicated that there would be a single alpha test this year, where players can test a very early version. It is now also known that there will be a second test, where you already can register for! In an interview with game site PCGamesN, Chris Lena said that the second test would be a stress test for the multiplayer part:
We’re going to start with a single-player technical alpha, and then we’ll have a second technical alpha after that, which is kind of multiplayer and stress testing. But, that’s all we have for specifics. ”
In one of the many videos in which Blizzard talks about the production, the central point seems to be that they want to honor the original as well as possible. The original frame would therefore be hidden underneath the beautiful graphic update. That makes us very enthusiastic! They have also been told in the Diablo 2 Resurrected Deep Dive that all cut scenes, every 27 minutes, are recreated frame by frame. Diablo 2 Resurrected is released for Playstation, Xbox and PC. It is not yet clear when we can expect the game.
