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!
