Diablo II Turns Ten
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of Blizzard Entertainment's action RPG sequel, Diablo II. To celebrate, the company unveiled a new web page to commemorate the event. Diablo II gave players the chance to take up the weapons of Necromancer, Amazon, Paladin, Sorceress, or Barbarian and challenge the might of the Prime Evils in an effort to save the world of mortals from enslavement.

Join us as we proudly celebrate the Diablo II 10-year anniversary! Released on June 29, 2000, Diablo II was built on the foundation established by the original Diablo, which combined classic role-playing game design philosophies and fast-paced demon-killing action.

Diablo II did more than just expand on the core feel and mechanics of the original game. It took a traditional dungeon crawl and opened up the game world with vast exterior zones and intricate, randomly generated dungeons. Diablo II took players from desert sands to the darkest jungles on a quest that would ultimately lead them into the depths of the Burning Hells.

Players were given a wider selection of unique character classes to choose from, including iconic archetypes like the Barbarian. Expanded character customization systems provided greater depth, starting with new abilities, an ample selection of loot to collect, and the option to enhance these treasures with sockets and runes.

Blizzard's popular platform also provided the game with robust multiplayer that remains popular years later. The game was patched earlier this year, has a lively community of players on every day, and regularly hits the top 20 in PC game sales charts.

Wed like to express our gratitude to the community for your support over the years -- thanks to your enthusiasm, Diablo II is still going strong.
