Diablo 2 was developed by Blizzard North and released by Blizzard Entertainment and it is the second title in the Diablo games series, having been released in 2000 for Windows and Mac Os. As you may already know, Blizzard works on Diablo 2 Remastered version, and we now can take a look at how the game would look like, thanks to a Reddit user.
The game is a dark fantasy-themed RPG. It became extremely popular in 2001, a year after its initial release. The main factors that influenced its popularity were the game’s hack and slash style and free access to Battle.net. Diablo 2 can be played in the single-player mode, or multi-player through a LAN connection.
Here is how a remastered version of Diablo 2 would look like
The game gained a large fanbase, with players all around the world enjoying the experience Diablo 2 provided. Now, 19 years later, a Reddit user who goes by the username Indoflaven, decided to experiment with some AI upscaling techniques, trying to recreate Diablo 2 Remastered. He shared some screenshots of what the remaster of the RPG action game would look like.
Here are the screenshots:
How were the screenshots of the Diablo 2 Remastered concept made?
The initial resolution of the screenshots of the game was 1024×768. In order to chisel them a little bit, Indoflaven used the Manga109 model for ESRGAN, managing to upscale them. After correcting the resolution, the Reddit user delivered the end result, which makes Diablo 2 look cleaner and sharper than ever.
Sadly, Indoflaven only processed some screenshots, not the actual texture of the game. Although a mod would be amazing to sharpen the general look of the game, modders say it is extremely hard to make modifications for a game like Diablo 2, so many years after its release.
However, hardcore fans of the game were thrilled to see the screenshots shared by Indoflaven, which give both a nostalgic and modern feel. Some rumors claim Blizzard could be planning to release a Diablo 2 Remastered, but no official announcement has been made.
