Diablo 2: Resurrected, a remake of the cult ARPG that has significantly influenced gaming culture and video games in general, will go on sale on September 24th. Over the past 20 years, the game has not lost its relevance, which is why fans really demanded to recreate it.
What is Diablo 2?
Role-playing action game where in the role of one of the heroes (paladin, wizard, amazon, barbarian, necromancer, assassin, druid) you have to go through the circles of hell and on the way to destroy tens of thousands of demons in the name of world peace. You can play with friends or alone.
In parallel with this, the player will find more and more interesting items of equipment that will affect the character’s skills almost more than the traditional pumping.
Nominally, the game has an ultimate goal (to kill Diablo), but fans have clearly been doing something else for 20 years. In fact, they are simply collecting more and more powerful equipment to effectively destroy enemies. Why? Because fighting is just fun. Even after 20 years.

The game lags heavily
Good afternoon, I purchased the PS 4 version, the downloads are very lagging, you go into the portal and you see the download and the character or the mercenary has already been killed, the picture lags far behind. The same thing happened in the 3rd city, in the 4th and 1st cities there was no such problem. 5th city the first 2 quests on the highlands, the game lags very much … I’m sure it’s not about the console, but about the game, the rest of the games with high demands work stably.
Please fix the lags.

The same thing happened in the 3rd city, in the 4th and 1st cities there was no such problem. 5th city the first 2 quests on the highlands, the game lags very much … I’m sure it’s not about the console, but about the game, the rest of the games with high demands work stably.
