Can I Run Diablo 2 Resurrected On My Computer?

Diablo 2: Resurrected is a remake of the classic Blizzard game released back in 2000. The graphical demands of the game aren’t especially high, but if you’ve got a fairly old machine you’ll still want to check the official minimum and recommended system requirements listed below. As ever, it is prudent to assume slightly more power is needed for decent FPS performance, as publishers do have a tendency to understate the needs of their game.

If you aren’t sure how to check the specs of your current rig, we advise that you have a read of our guide on how to look up your PC specs. If it turns out that your current PC won’t be sufficient, have a look down at the bottom of this page where we have listed some PC builds which will comfortably play the game at different settings.

Diablo 2: Resurrected is essentially exactly the same game as was released back in 2000, but with enhanced graphics, animations, and effects, not to mention improved cutscenes.

Following the events of the first game, the dark lord Diablo has returned and the player must help defeat him once more to stop him wreaking havoc on the land. The game is separated into acts with predetermined plot points, but much of the action and locations between the main city hubs is randomly generated each time.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Diablo 2 Resurrected?

As mentioned, Diablo II: Resurrected is a relatively undemanding game, though it is still significantly more demanding than the original Diablo II as you’d expect. On the lowest settings you should be able to play the game at 1080p with one of our $500 builds or something like it. Turning things up to the higher settings and resolutions however, will require something at least as powerful as a $1,000 PC build.

Similarly, if you don’t want to put together your own PC and are looking for a pre-build then a $800 pre-built gaming PC should work for playing the game on the lower settings at 1080p resolution, whereas a $1,000 pre-build will be needed to turn those graphical settings up to the max.
