Just months after a select few were given exclusive access to the technical alpha, Blizzard has announced the official release date for Diablo II: Resurrected.

Fans can now expect the genre-defining action role-playing game to launch on September 23, globally. Gone is the original 800×600 resolution (although nostalgic fans can toggle on/off original resolution) and in its place is full 4K, 60 FPS gameplay along with fully remastered 7.1 Dolby Surround audio. All 27 minutes of cinematics have also been recreated in modern graphics.

“The Lord of Terror has demanded that we remaster Diablo II, and we are excited to do his bidding by bringing Diablo II: Resurrected to PC and console players this September, with cross-progression, so everyone can enjoy it on their preferred system,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “We also look forward to welcoming new and returning Diablo players to our upcoming multiplayer open beta. Their feedback will help us put the finishing touches on a game we hope players will continue to enjoy for many years to come.”

Set for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4/5, and Nintendo Switch, this cross progression-ready game (Battle.net) will be priced at $39.99 USD or $59.99 for the Diablo Prime Evil Collection, which includes: Diablo II: Resurrected and the Diablo III Eternal CollectionDiablo III, the Reaper of Souls expansion, the Rise of the Necromancer content pack, and the Mephisto pet and Hatred’s Grasp wings for Diablo III.
