Blizzard Entertainment first announced Diablo II: Resurrected earlier this year during the first day of the all-digital BlizzConline event. The remaster will retain the original’s gameplay and storyline, but will feature enhanced graphics, including Ultra High Definition 4K (2160p) support on PC.

The remaster will also trade the original game’s 2D sprite-based graphics for “full 3D physically-based rendering, dynamic lighting, revamped animations and spell effects”, according to a press release.

In other Diablo news, Blizzard Entertainment recently released details of Diablo III‘s upcoming Season 24 loot drops. Public testing on Diablo III: Season 24 will kick off on June 17 lasting for two weeks.
