Following last week’s announcement of Diablo II Resurrected, a video has surfaced, comparing the upcoming remake to the original game.
Resurrected is so dark in places!
I think they might tone that down a bit before release. It's one of the things some of the VIP community guests they invited to Blizzcon brought up with the team.
played hundred of hours on this... Good memories
the original art style looks more appealing
both have their charm imo, but I gotta say the remaster looks way better than what I expected especially the fire effects look gorgeous in those corridors.
It does look better, but I feel more immersed when watching the original.
The fluid animation is a big plus, as well as the atmospheric lighting effects. Maybe the enironments could be a little more destructible this time ? It makes not much sense that some walls crumble and others dont (in 2021).
Love Vicarious Visions, this one will be legit. Seriously, in for multiple copies for cross-progression. Everything looking great so far. An all time classic, this is.
I really appreciate the care that is going into paying respect to the original style. The remaster looks pretty dark at points, but it also has some lovely lighting and particle effects. I will definitely give this a spin when it releases. That said, let's all be glad it doesn't use D3's weird cartoony look. Between this and D4, it's clear that Blizzard has learned a lesson here. (and that, to be fair, is despite D3's significant financial success)
