Blizzard has confirmed the requirements for Diablo II Resurrected on its PC version, and I must admit that I was a bit surprised, as they are a bit steep. I understand that this is due to the jump to a 3D engine that has greatly improved the graphic quality compared to the original, but even with that in mind, they seem excessive to me. They may be a little inflated, or that they are pending optimization and that they end up being reduced in the final version, but right now we cannot guarantee anything, so we have to wait.
Diablo II Resurrected is, as we anticipated last week, a remastered version of the classic that Blizzard released in 2000, and that became one of the most successful titles of the American company. From what I could see during this year’s BlizzConline, both the gameplay and mechanics have remained intact, the setting has improved significantly, and the art design features many successes, but also small errors, such as the new faces of the Amazon and of the murderer, who do not finish to square me.
Overall, the impressions of Diablo II Resurrected on me are very positive. I’m a fan of the franchise since I played the first installment of Diablo back in 1996 on my humble 133 MHz Pentium, and enjoy for many years of the second installment, in fact I got to maximize all the characters with different constructions, both in skills and equipment. My favorite was, and still is, the bow amazon with the runic word “Faith.”
I couldn’t count the number of hours I spent on Diablo II, and its expansion, Lord of Destruction, but I am clear that I’ll lose track of Diablo II Resurrected again. Its release date has yet to be confirmed, but Blizzard has ensured that it will arrive before the end of 2021, and that it will be available on all current consoles, including Nintendo Switch, and also on PC. And speaking of PC, let’s see its requirements.
Diablo II Resurrected Minimum Requirements
Windows 10 64-bit. Intel Core i3 3250 or AMD FX 4350 processor. A two-core, four-thread CPU is required. 8 GB of RAM. GTX 660 or HD 7850 graphics card with 2 GB of graphics memory. 30 GB of free space.
In general, there are no major errors in the equivalences within the minimum requirements. With this configuration, we can play in 1,280 x 720 pixels fluently.
Diablo II Resurrected Recommended Requirements
Windows 10 64-bit. Intel Core i5 9600K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor. 16 GB of RAM. GTX 1060 or Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics card. 30 GB of free space.
I don’t appreciate either no serious mistake in the equivalences at this level, although the Ryzen 5 2600 has 6 cores and 12 threads, while the Core i5 9600K has 6 cores and 6 threads, and a higher IPC.
If we reach this level, we can play it in resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels No problem.
