Diablo II is being recreated in StarCraft 2 by an enterprising fan

You probably have enough of Diablo II in Diablo III at this point to satisfy any urges you might have to play the classic game in a more modern engine. But if that’s not enough for you, why not take a hop and a skip over to StarCraft 2? Because someone is literally remaking the game via the real-time strategy title’s map editor.

Yes, this is a thing that’s happening. User egod123 is rebuilding Diablo II in this wholly different game. Sometimes life is amazing.

The project has been in the works since 2014 and is aimed at recreating the game faithfully while also adding in two additional challenge game modes, with an option for fans to start testing the maps as of today. Hopefully this one won’t attract the banhammer from the Blizzard legal team, although given that it’s being made as a mod of another Blizzard game anyhow, that might be an interesting case to see happen.

Would probably open up a worm hole in some lawyer’s office, somewhere.

When games offer tools for making people will use them to make projects, i wish to see more of that, games stay alive longer with a community making content for it.

This is a great project, impressive.

Oh man, if you don’t need the SC expansions then I may have to reinstall the game to play this. Gimme D2 remake instead of this D3 nonsense, pls!
