Diablo 2 Resurrected PC system requirements revealed – and mod support confirmed

Diablo 2 Resurrected has just been announced at BlizzCon 2021, with Blizzard now revealing the PC requirements for the incoming remaster – and confirming that mods will be supported, to boot.

What kind of system will you need to run Diablo 2 Resurrected, then? Fortunately, the requirements aren’t particularly demanding from a contemporary gaming perspective, although the recommended spec – for 1080p resolution – does call for 16GB of system memory (an increasing trend these days).

Here are those PC spec requirements in full.

Minimum requirements (720p)

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-3250 or AMD FX-4350
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 / AMD Radeon HD 7850
  • Drive Space: 30GB

Recommended requirements (1080p)

  • OS: Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-9600K or AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
  • Drive Space: 30GB

So as you can see, there’s nothing traumatic here, and indeed the bare minimum requirements are very easy-going – although note that this is for running the game at 720p resolution, which isn’t going to look great, of course.

Diablo 2 Resurrected ups the graphical ante considerably, and as we’ve seen, it will update the visuals with a fresh coat of paint and allow the resolution to be cranked up to 4K while supporting refresh rates of up to 144Hz.

There will, however, be a classic mode which reverts to the look of the original sprite-based (2D) game, should you wish to go that route. As well as the beefed-up visuals, Blizzard is delivering Dolby 7.1 surround on the audio side with remastered and re-recorded sound effects.
