Today during Blizzcon, Blizzard announced its plan to release an entire remake of Diablo inside of Diablo III via the upcoming “20th anniversary” patch. The remake will include a 16-level cathedral and the four bosses from the first Diablo, so technically not the whole game, but a good portion of it.
Other salient details:
- There will be a special graphics filter to make everything pixelated and grainy.
- Character movement will be restricted to eight directions.
Lastly, Blizzard confirmed the patch will be live on the public test realm next week. We will continue to update this post as more details come out.
