The remaster of Blizzard’s iconic Diablo 2 officially launched this week, and although the original game came out over 20 years ago, the glow up is not without its performance cost. Back during the Beta we tested out performance, and whilst mid-range hardware could get decent FPS at 1080p at least, Diablo 2 Resurrected was a pretty demanding game at higher resolutions even on modern hardware.

Thankfully, it seems like that might change soon, as a developer at Vicarious Visions - who have worked on the remaster - recently confirmed that Diablo 2 Resurrected will be getting support for Nvidia’s DLSS after launch, which should really help squeeze some more frame rates for those higher resolutions.

Twitter user @RepsUp100 located in the game files of D2R a mention of Nvidia DLSS. This wasn’t at all confirmed by Blizzard, but Kevin Todisco, the Graphics Lead at Vicarious Visions, confirmed that DLSS will indeed be coming to D2 Resurrected sometime after launch, though there is no exact release date for it yet:

Won’t be available right at launch, unfortunately. No timetable to announce at this time. Stay tuned though!

What do you think? Are you excited for DLSS support in Diablo 2 Resurrected? How has performance been for you so far? Let us know!

What has performance been like for you in D2 Resurrected?

DLSS will not help to look it like a game from the 2000s

On my system, 1440p max settings + TAA + 150% res scaling (because screw jaggies) achieves over 100fps, so I thought it performs alright, but DLSS is always welcome 👍

I play the same - 1440p max settings + TAA + 150% res scaling on my 3080 and get around 90-100 on avarage. DLSS would be a welcomed edition though.

If the implementation is good - it should deliver nice AA on top with a bit of extra perf. Also, I'm not sure if today's patch did anything, but it seems to be performing slightly better than yesterday somehow, but I could be dreaming.

So it isnt that demanding after all, wonder why the game runs like this it is not that visually impressive

Because it's an overlay on the original game. Basically it's running an emulator with a bunch of new code to clean up some little things. Run the game and check your CPU, GPU and ram use.

I wouldn't say that it's not visually impressive at all! If you zoom in - the models they use are very detailed, the textures are great, there are tons of dynamic lighting effects, particle effects, reflections everywhere. It looks really nice, IMO. Look at the detail in that skeletal throne alone! (and this is zoomed-in, you wouldn't be playing the game this close up)


I can't say how I'd expect a game like this to run, since I don't really have much to compare with, but what I can say is that I'm very happy with the way it looks.
