Diablo 2 Resurrected is upon us.
One of the major announcements at BlizzConline this weekend is the forthcoming Diablo 2: Resurrected, a complete remaster of the classic game for PCs and consoles by Vicarious Visions.
If you've been watching BlizzConline (or reading about it), you've probably heard mention of cross-progression, a feature you'll find in both Diablo 2: Resurrected and Diablo 4.
Watching the Diablo Q&A at BlizzConline, I was happy to hear Rob Gallerami talk about how multiplayer is going to work in Diablo 2: Resurrected. Although I was a bit disappointed to hear him say that we're not going to get the couch co-op play that Diablo 3 has on consoles, I was heartened to hear that 8-player multiplayer will be available, hearkening back to the way it worked when the game first came out, and it'll be available through Battle.net.
I was relieved to see that gameplay in Diablo 2: Resurrected is almost completely unchanged.
We've been expecting this one for a while.
I'm not saying that's going to be the case, but it's been a year and then some since the big Diablo 4 reveal at BlizzCon 2019, and even though we've seen numerous Developer Updates on the game, one thing we haven't seen is any news of any new classes being added after the Druid, Sorceress, and Barbarian announced at that time.
There is no Cow Level.
To be clear right off the bat, this is just a post of speculation.
Druids were first introduced as a playable class in Diablo 2, and they were an immediate player favorite. But they never showed up in Diablo 3, despite the suggestion that they might be added in a hero pack like the Necromancer. But now Druids are making their triumphant return in Diablo 4.
