The classic that is Diablo 2 is soon to get a gorgeous new makeover as Blizzard prepares to update the classic withy new graphics and controls. We've already seen how much better the new version looks over the original, but what kind of graphics settings are available in the Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta?
Diablo 2 Resurrected launches on September 23rd, but a Beta is currently underway for those who pre-ordered, with a free public Beta beginning this Wednesday for everyone else. So we've been able to take a look at all the PC graphics settings available in the Diablo 2 Resurrected Early Access Beta, and see how much the new remaster has changed over the original.
So let's dive in and have a look at all the Diablo 2 Resurrected Beta PC graphics settings...

And so that's all the PC graphics settings available in the Diablo 2 Resurrected! Since this is currently a Beta version of the game, the actual amount of settings may differ upon the final release, but so far there seems to be a decent amount of graphics settings to help get the right balance of visual quality and FPS performance.
Some notable settings which are always welcome are Resolution Scaling and Dynamic Resolution Scaling, which should help us achieve the right performance we want without sacrificing image quality too much. Each setting also has a decent amount of range to adjust.
Additionally, since Diablo 2 Resurrected is an updated remaster of the original classic, Blizzard has kindly added a key binding that instantly swaps between the new, updated graphics and the old "Legacy" version. You can even customize the level of quality and resolution of the Legacy mode.
Apart from that though there isn't really any other settings worth noting. You have a good amount of graphical settings to adjust quality at least, so we have room to adjust visuals and therefore the kind of performance we want. Blizzard may or may not add more settings at launch, but for now this is a pretty good amount.
