A fan released a complete remake of Diablo 2. The PC mod includes all the content and classes from the original game. The remake is called Reign of Terror and is built on Crate Entertainment’s Grim Dawn, a much more contemporary ARPG set in an equally apocalyptic fantasy world.

“Reign of Terror is a complete remake (not a 1: 1 copy) of the classic ARPG Diablo 2,” notes mod designer Ram in his description. “[Includes}allcontentandclassespresentintheoriginalDiablo2includingitsexpansionLordofDestructionInadditionasthisisaGrimDawnmoditalsofeaturesallGrimDawnclassesanditemsinadditiontoallthemainmechanics”continuesthedescription[Inclui}todooconteúdoeclassespresentesnoDiablo2originalincluindosuaexpansãoLordofDestruction AlémdissocomoesteéummodGrimDawneletambémapresentatodasasclasseseitensdoGrimDawnalémdetodasasmecânicasprincipais”continuaadescrição[Includes}allcontentandclassespresentintheoriginalDiablo2includingitsexpansionLordofDestructionInadditionasthisisaGrimDawnmoditalsofeaturesallGrimDawnclassesanditemsinadditiontoallthemainmechanics”continuesthedescription[Inclui}todooconteúdoeclassespresentesnoDiablo2originalincluindosuaexpansãoLordofDestruction AlémdissocomoesteéummodGrimDawneletambémapresentatodasasclasseseitensdoGrimDawnalémdetodasasmecânicasprincipais”continuaadescrição

So, in a way, this mod overlays Diablo 2’s DNA with Grim Dawn’s modernity and was designed to culminate in a large-scale contemporary remake of the classic Blizzard ARPG.

Watch the gameplay video:

For access the remake of Diablo 2, however, you will need to own Grim Dawn and the two expansions.

“To play Reign of Terror, you need the base game and the Ashes of Malmouth and Forgotten Gods expansion,” says the description. “There are manual patch downloads available, but also a Reign of Terror Launcher, which does all updates automatically.”

Ram thinks this is as close as fans will get to a remake of Diablo 2. “Since the core mechanics cannot be changed, a perfect replica of Diablo 2 is not possible.”

Blizzard recently announced that it is still too early to know if BlizzCon 2020 will happen, so this may be the most significant development for Diablo that you will see for a while.
