During Blizzconline’s 2021 event, Blizzard officially announced - after various rumors - Diablo 2: Resurrected, a complete remaster of the original classic as well as the Lord of Destruction DLC. Now Blizzard have revealed the official PC system requirements for the upcoming remaster.

The original Diablo 2 has some pretty light system requirements in comparison to today, so how does the latest HD remaster of Diablo 2 Resurrected fare? Well luckily, if you own a mid-range PC today you’ll be able to play Diablo 2 Remastered at its best. So let’s dive in to the official Diablo II Resurrected PC system requirements...

Diablo 2: Resurrected minimum system requirements

Diablo 2: Resurrected recommended system requirements

Diablo 2 Resurrected requires at least a GTX 1060 or RX 5500 XT graphics card paired with either a Core i5-9600K or Ryzen 5 2600 processor in order to reach the recommended specs and achieve 60fps on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution. The amount of RAM required for Diablo II Resurrected is 16GB.

Looking over the minimum requirements for Diablo 2 Resurrected you will need a GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7850 GPU to reach the minimum specs. You will also need either a Core i3-3250 or FX-4350 CPU as well as 8GB of system memory. This should then deliver at least 60fps on Low graphics settings at 720p resolution.

Looking over the various requirements above, the recommended specs will need around a 5 year old PC in order to run at its best.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Diablo 2 Resurrected System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Diablo 2 Resurrected GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Diablo 2 Resurrected Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

Different studio, different goals, different result. Watch some content/interviews. Vicarious seem to not screw this one up. Also the original D2 will not be pulled from sale when the remaster drops, unlike what happened with Reforged.

This is made by Vicarious Visions, who lately put out some great remasters (THPS1+2, Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy), which is the reason why they got shifted to Blizzard to work on this. I'd be surprised if they screw it up.

You're in for a treat then! Hopefully this remaster stays faithful after the open-beta. I have a feeling that might just steer it away from the original somewhat, even past the small QoL improvements...

You forgot one thing. It is confirmed that anyone can play this game OFFLINE.

lol you actually trust these dick bags to remaster Diablo 2? Need I remind you of the Warcraft 3 "remaster"?

Based on the various information regarding the project I would say that it looks like it will be amazing. It is already beyond the wildest dreams of anyone who imagined what a remaster might be for this game.


Reputation can't be used to make every assumption.

The new remastered graphics will be running on top of the old game, just like in Halo MCC, so the gameplay will be spot-on, I'm sure. Where things could go sideways is the open beta stage where they'll be open to community feedback - I have a feeling this is where things might change a bit, and not necessarily for the better, depending on the audience (veterans vs completely new players giving feedback).

I think the best way to do it is to have the remastered version that is faithful and then another version that gets updated with balance changes/bug fixes and possibly content. So there will be D2 Classic Remastered, D2 LOD Classic Remastered and D2 Resurrected.

Well, they said they are doing some things like minor quality-of-life changes and some bugfixes, like item duping (because they want people to not cheat online). It would make no sense to have a bunch of versions that all tie into battlenet + support for all. 1 version is enough, it just needs to be good.

Well one things for sure. I would not PRE-ORDER the game. I will wait like 1 week after its launch and see if it's worth getting it.

Vicarious had nothing to do with Reforged, Mr Viper. Perhaps you look up some info and see some content on this D2 project before resorting to dickbaggery yourself?

I hope they fix the assassin trap bug...but it isn't really widely known.

Nice one! The only way to make a change happen is to let them know of the bug

Been playing D3 at 5K 165fps on my system back in 2080Ti days - I'm hoping this D2 remaster can run around the same so I can experience it in all its glory. I'll grab it for Switch too (physical cartridge, hopefully). So far what I'm seeing looks fantastic and very faithful to the source - and the original graphics can even be toggled at any time like in Halo MCC!

As a side note - the marketing always makes me chuckle... "up to 4K resolution" they say - bruh I ran GTA VC at 8K just fine (10K crashed back when I had an 11GB buffer on a 2080Tis, might try again now), 4K isn't a limit for the vast majority of PC games, even the really old ones. Why can't marketing just say "unlocked resolution/ramerate" rather than mentioning "4K" as some holy grail, which it isn't...

This "unlocked resolution/framerate" probably sounds a lot more confusing to casual gamers than "4K"...

Yeah, I understand why the buzzwords are used for marketing. Now it's "4K/UHD", a few years back it was "HD/Full HD", etc. It's just that as a PC gamer of over 2 decades I find it both wrong and unnecessary is all. In an ideal world marketing would be factually accurate, but we don't live in an ideal world...

So far, it looks promising. But I won't pre-order or buy until reviews come out. Warcraft III: Reforged and Cyberpunk have taught me a lesson or two.
