What are your thoughts after seeing actual gameplay?

I think the higher resolution and framerate alone do soooo much for the game. Its a shame that its not feasable to resurrect median for it :cry:
The small inventory, slow walk speed and no-cd-teleport still baffle me..

Someone already know about the structure of the gamefiles? Is it ~similar to the old D2 gamefile structure for a "easy" "MedianXL Ressurected"?

I really don't understand all the hate towards Resurrected. Sure the game is flawed, but almost all of us probably started out a fan of Diablo II before moving on to Median. Considering that there will be mod support which will surely bolster balance mods and other improvements along with the already updated graphics, I just feel like everyone's stubbornly fanboying Median, lol

Totally agree. The whole idea of a remaster is that it's supposed to be the original game with better graphics and minor improvements. I was a huge fan of D2 vanilla and LoD, and was happy to put up with the game's flaws as a kid. As an adult maybe I won't be, but I'm willing to put out the $40 or whatever to find out. The shared stash is a game changer for sure. Devs seem to really care about the details and end product.

It will be moddable which is good news for futur mods.

The question remains: Without .dll injection capabilities, just how rigid are the moddable parameters?

I know they simplified the modding process in many ways but I’m concerned that mods will be limited to map hack and such and not actual content...

You made a good point but i just asked some D2 modders that do code editing and they say it will be achievable, only starting roughly from scratch.
