Every year, along with rumors of Half-Life 3 are predictions about a remake of Diablo II. Gamers are still expecting Blizzard to please them, though somewhat disappointed with WarCraft 3: Reforged not long ago, but veteran gamers are still waiting for the day to run around Tristram, hunt the boss to pick runes on 4K graphics.
Tired of waiting for Blizzard (which sometimes The quality is not even high), Mr. YouTuber Michael ReznoR manually recreating the graphics and sound of Diablo II. Utilizing the power of machine learning and Advanced Motion Interpolation technology, Michael ReznoR makes smoother character movements and actions, with HD graphics as if the game was made in this era. This remake of Diablo retains the 4: 3 aspect ratio of the old square screen, only changing the resolution as well as the number of frames per second, from the old 25 fps limit to 60 fps.
Graphics are not the only thing that receives special care. Environmental effects and 3D sound also appear clearly. You can see the difference of the soundtrack when you enter and exit Den of Evil, the first mission location in Diablo II.
The video above is just a 1080p version, you can click on this YouTube link to experience the 4K version of Diablo II. It is recommended that you do not watch videos at 720p, because it is no different from the original 600p video so you will not notice any difference. Besides, this playlist is a collection of short videos introduced before each Act, all of which have been recreated with AI graphics.
It took AI 10 days and nights to make this video, with a database of 50,244 files, accounting for 390GB of hard drive, you probably don’t want it to waste your efforts just to see the 720p version which is no longer available. is HD.
In our memory, Diablo II is very beautiful, the characters move smoothly but the truth is not so; Diablo II is too many pixels by today’s game standards, and after many breakthroughs of the gaming industry, we can hardly feel secure to experience a game with only 25 fps. YouTuber Michael ReznoR not only remake a legendary game, but also “HDize” the childhood of many people.
Unfortunately, this is just a series of videos showing how beautiful Diablo II’s remake can be, both making the fans crave and setting the upper limit for Blizzard to try; Genuine quality must also be more or less like this, no one will buy it.
However, by the way, I will introduce you to Project Diablo 2, a graphic remake and improvement of Diablo II that you still know.
