Diablo 2 Resurrected is now live. Now that players are no longer experiencing server issues, characters disappearing or encountering black screens; players are now enjoying the game. Players are now reliving (or living through the game for the first time) early 2000s memories taking on Diablo’s demon denizens invading Sanctuary.
One of the many Diablo 2 Resurrected features players are enjoying is the modernized high definition look on Diablo 2 Resurrected. Every character you can play, baddie you fight and boss you slay all look incredibly different compared to the original game. However, some players do love that nostalgia aesthetic. If you are one of those, you’ll be glad to know that there is a Diablo 2 Resurrected legacy mode, time-warping you straight back to the early 2000s.
Diablo 2 Resurrected legacy mode
The Diablo 2 Resurrected legacy mode is available for all platforms and actively allows you to switch to the old school without changing any video settings. Normally, you have to change these sorts of settings in the video settings and restart your game. However, it appears Blizzard has built the legacy and modern switch seamlessly into the engine. It is like how World of Warcraft has more modern-day graphics, like ray tracing, but you can select the classic look if you want it. Or perhaps how Halo Master Chief Collection transitions smoothly between original graphics and modern-day visuals.
You should know that switching to the Diablo 2 Resurrected legacy mode is different for every device. To change between Diablo 2 Resurrected modern or legacy mode, you will need to do the following.
- PC – G key
- PS4/5 – L2 plus Touchpad
- Xbox – Left Trigger and Square
If you’re on the Nintendo Switch, there is, unfortunately, no keybinding. You will need to go into the game’s settings and press the toggle mode button.
Using these methods work for switching between the Diablo 2 resurrected legacy mode and the standard mode.
