Blizzard has released a brand new update for Diablo 2: Resurrected. According to the team, this latest update brings significant balance changes and changes to almost every class. In addition, it contains a number of AI enhancements and adds a new Legacy Graphics Emulation option.

Legacy Graphics Emulation includes 3 different graphics emulation options for the Legacy game. These are the ‘GDI’, ‘Glide’ and ‘Resurrected’ variants.

  • ‘GDI’ emulates the software rasterization of the original game and does not apply any filtering.
  • ‘Glide’ emulates the backend of the original game with hardware acceleration and bilinear filtering.
  • Resurrected uses Glide emulation with additional fixes to eliminate artifacts that occur in the original rendering of Glide.

Glide Mode is sure to put a smile on the face of every 3DFX fan.

Along with these legacy options, Update 2.4 brings some performance optimizations. For example, it optimizes particle effects on some console platforms. It also optimizes inventory move actions to reduce latency. In addition, a VFX quality option has been added for PC players, as well as a VRAM usage panel in the settings menu.

As usual, Battle.net will download this patch the next time you launch your client. You can also find its complete changelog here!
