Diablo 2: Resurrected release time in UK / BST, CEST, EDT and PDT explained

When you can get your hands on Blizzard's remaster.

The Diablo 2: Resurrected release time is hours away - and regardless of your time zone, will unlock for everyone at the same time.

Originally launching back in 2000 on PC, the remaster sees one of the most revered Blizzard games be given a 4K makeover and branch out to modern consoles.

You can, of course, switch back to its classic 800x600 look if you prefer, since the original game is still running under the hood - but that doesn't mean Blizzard sees this as a replacement if you want to play the original client.
