Diablo 2: Resurrected Trailers Detail Barbarian and Sorceress Classes
Diablo 2: ResurrectedIt is rapidly approaching its release date. There are just a few months left before the highly anticipated title’s release. A pair of trailers have been released that highlight two of the most beloved classes, the Sorceress and the Barbarian.
Blizzard Entertainment’s long-awaited remake of its 21-year-old RPG PC gaming game, Diablo 2, is set for release in a matter of weeks. The development of Diablo 2: Resurrected has been reported to have had minimal crunch. However, the original Diablo 2 was quite different. The original’s developmental crunch was so severe that it spanned a year and a half, where employees were given sleeping bags.
The fan-favourite Barbarian was the first Diablo 2 character class trailer. The roughly 30-second long clip shows off the Barbarian in all their tanking, dual-wielding, vaguely-Batista-looking glory. The footage is interspersed with the message “Unleash Your Fury” and shows the melee-focused class using variety skills and abilities including Battlecries and Leap Attacks and Whirlwinds. Barbarian’s trailer shows how the class can function as a tank-like type, fighting what appears to be dozens of demons within a flaming pentagram. There are many ways to customize Barbarians but most players use them as a way to lead the charge into battle.
The Sorceress is the other character class trailer for Diablo 2: Revived. The Sorceress is one of five original classes in Diablo2. She specializes in elemental magic, which is clearly displayed in the video footage. The Sorceress class is an inverse of the Barbarian in many ways. They are weak in melee combat but can do devastating area-of-effect and ranged damage thanks to their large mana pool. This trailer showcases these skills well. It shows a variety of Cold, Lightning and Fire spells, all in stunning HD. A party that includes both a Sorceress and Barbarian class could be dynamic and deadly.
The Diablo 2 Resurrected class trailers are sure to help build hype for the full launch, but some players have already started diving in. Fans who pre-ordered the title were granted early access to the beta version. This has been happening for several weeks. While the beta was received well, some fans have complained about the game’s lobbies. Resurrected doesn’t allow console players to create and join custom lobbies. This is a major feature that allows players to find certain opportunities or objectives.
Diablo fans have reached a fever pitch in anticipation of the remaster. Many gamers hold the game in high regard, with Diablo 2 still being supported by a large community more than 20 years later. Fans can watch this video to compare Diablo 2’s new cinematics with the originals while they wait for Diablo 2 Resurrected.
