"Direct control has this immersion quality to it" Fergusson adds D2R Items. "When you use mouse-click - - which it is! You're kind of a divine being floating around your charactersaying, 'go there to that place, do this do this, do that. '"
Diablo Immortal will also feature gamepad support, which was first added into Diablo in the console version of Diablo 3. Fergusson mentioned that his first time playing the game got him excited to bring that function into Diablo 2: Resurrected, and now it's being made accessible for both mobile and PC versions of Diablo Immortal.
It is possible to sign up for Diablo Immortal at Blizzard's official website, or you can hold off until launch date on June 2nd and it's just around the corner.
Diablo 2 gets first major update in 11 yearsand also addresses some 20 years-old bugsBlizzard Entertainment launched major updates for Diablo 2: Resurrected on Thursday. It was a patch that brought about sweeping balance changes and also addressed a variety of bugs that plagued the popular click-and-kill action RPG. The patch 2.4 that is for Diablo 2: Resurrected is the first major balance overhaul to the game in over 11 years. It also addresses some nasty bugs that players have faced since the original game was launched in the year 2000.
It is worth noting two long-standing bugs with Diablo 2 that would have totally wiped out your character's mana - making certain classes virtually defenseless -- or dealt too much damage -- especially fire-enchanted monsters. From Blizzard's extensive patch notes:
Fixed an issue that caused Unique monster packs with mana drains were draining mana more than intended D2R ladder items buy. Fixed an issue where fire enchanted monsters were causing excessive damage in Nightmare difficulty.
