PURCHASE THE GAME

Fearsome demons, brave adventurers, and the world of Sanctuary, resurrected. We welcome you to experience this timeless classic, now with fully rebuilt 3D graphics, remastered audio, brand-new cinematics, quality-of-life changes, cross-progression support, and so much more. Choose from seven unique classes to be your vessel of vengeance as you slay and loot your foes in an epic tale of evil corruption.

If you haven’t already picked up a copy of the game, you can digitally pre-purchase Diablo II: Resurrected for Windows® PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and the Nintendo Switch™ system. As an added perk, you'll be able to pre-download following your pre-purchase now. Once the game enters your library, you'll be able to install it before the release, so when the gates of Hell open on September 23, you'll be among the first to enter the game!

PLEASE NOTE: Diablo II: Resurrected is only available digitally, and there are no physical versions of the game.

If you currently own Diablo III, all players who pre-purchase Diablo II: Resurrected will be able to immediately unlock the Heritage of Arreat transmog—a Diablo II-themed Barbarian transmog set that Diablo III Barbarians can wear for that classic blue warpaint look. Anyone who pre-purchased the Diablo Prime Evil Collection can also unlock their Mephisto pet and equip the menacing Hatred’s Grasp wing set in Diablo III. For more details, click here.

FAQ

Q: When will the Ladder rankings be implemented?

A: We plan on implementing Ladder rankings and listings post-launch. We’ll provide a more comprehensive update on this soon.

Q: Are there any requirements for online play?

A: Beyond an internet connection, for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, the Xbox Live Gold plan will be required to access multiplayer features. For PlayStation®5 and PlayStation®4, the PlayStation Plus plan will be required to access multiplayer features.

Q: Will I be able to load my Diablo II Classic save files into Diablo II: Resurrected?

A: Players will be able to load their local offline saves by copying the save files from the original Diablo II to Diablo II: Resurrected on PC. The underlying game engine is the same, so those local saves will work but they will need to be copied over manually. However, local save files (whether newly created or copied from Diablo II) will be different from online save files—there are profound differences between the modern Battle.net of today and the platform we launched with Diablo II all those years ago. To enjoy all of the modern online features, such as friend invites and greater security, players will need to create a new online character.

Q: What locale languages does Diablo II: Resurrected support?

A: Diablo II: Resurrected language support includes English, French, Italian, German, European Spanish, Korean, Polish, Traditional Chinese, Mexican Spanish, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian.

Q: Will there be a physical edition of Diablo II: Resurrected?

A: Diablo II: Resurrected is a digital-only product.

PLEASE NOTE: An internet connection is required to download the client. Single Player mode may be played offline, but a connection to the internet will be required on occasion for periodic updates and authentication checks.
