The new patch fixes a number of decades-old BugsThe appeal in D2R Items is still going well, if the sales numbers of Blizzard's Diablo II: Resurrected are an hint. In a announcement of the release of Patch 2.4 for the remaster (read Neil's thoughts on it here), Blizzard has revealed that Resurrected has sold more than 5 million units. This has far exceeded the original's four million sold.


In the case of the 2.4 patch, it's one of the few patches in 11 years that addresses balance issues with Diablo II. "Among the improvements are a variety of modifications for each class brand new Rune Words, fresh Horadric Cube recipes, Mercenary changes, and more!"


Particularly notable for balancing are changes to a variety of bugs that have been around since the original game. For example, Blizzard has fixed an issue that led to certain monsters with the ability to drain mana to gain more mana than originally intended for the character.


It puts them vulnerable when trying to cast spells.And for those who are still at it with the seasonal Ladders, Diablo II: Resurrected's next season will be in full swing on April 28th.


Diablo II: Resurrected is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and the Nintendo Switch.Diablo 2: Resurrected's first Ladder Season begins todayA livestream event where a variety of content creators battle to reach high positions on the leaderboards for Ladder will mark the occasion.


Delay for long, Diablo II: Resurrected is finally seeing its debut Ladder season today, seven months after the game's launch , and two weeks after it received its most significant balance update in more than a decade.


Diablo II: Resurrected's inaugural Ladder season has been a long time waiting for it, due to various post-launch issues forced Blizzard to delay the debut of the game until it could ensure the game's stabilityJust like in the original version of Diablo II, Diablo II: Resurrected's Ladder system functions as an aspect of competitive seasonal play, where players make unique, only Ladder-based characters and progress up the leaderboards.


Players can pick between playing as a character in either the Classic Ladder (which encompasses the original game's four acts), Hardcore Classic Ladder (the identical to Classic but with the extra twist of just having one chance to live) as well as either Classic and Hardcore ladders that encompass Lord of Destruction's Lord of Destruction expansion content.


The characters created on a particular Ladder may only play others on the same Ladder. When the season, Ladder players will then be transformed to non-Ladder characters and will be able to keep any Ladder-exclusive items included in the character's inventory with Diablo 2 Resurrected Items.
