Diablo 2: Resurrected will take advantage of the functions of the PS5 DualSense controller
Diablo II Resurrected will land in 2021 and it will do so with a few improvements. How it will look on PS5 has been talking, specifically, about the handling of the DualSense controller.
Rumors about the development of a remaster of the popular Diablo II were confirmed at the last Blizzconline 2021 with the announcement of this Resurrected edition for all consoles and PC. Now, little by little, we are getting to know more details about this title.
Diablo II Resurrected is being developed by Blizzard Entertainment and Vicarious Visions, creators of Tony Hawk Pro Skater Remaster, and is coming to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, One, Switch, and PC. About the console Sony’s new generation, the development team has been talking.
During a Blizzconline roundtable, Robert Gallerani and Maxine Virtue, developers of this remastered sequel commented that the studio is betting on take advantage of the improvements that the DualSense controller can bring to the improved gameplay of this title.
We are still working on how we want to use the DualSense, but haptic feedback on the controller is something really exciting, so we want to make sure we take advantage of it, the developers acknowledged.
Talking about how the game was adapting for optimal controller operation, its creators commented: In the original game, the teleportation of the Sorceress works by clicking where you want. Wherever you click, that’s where you teleport.
When you’re using the controller, you don’t have a cursor, so when you teleport with the Sorceress, we have a predetermined distance for teleportation. Some of the moves we make, for example a Blood Golem from a Necromancer will always appear wherever you want. While some moves, we actually let you hold down a button and then you get a cursor.
Little by little we will know more details about Diablo 2 Resurrected and what it will look like in 2021. Still with no release date, the hack n ‘slash mechanics have already been enhanced with dynamic lighting to give it 3D, 4K resolution and much more.
