The "Diablo 1" remake may be something that fans are apparently going crazy over, especially those who stayed faithful to the franchise over the many years. There are a few things to account for, however, as Blizzard Entertainment stated.

As some may know, the "Diablo 1" remake is one that apparently would bring back the feel of the original, as the name implies. However, it was confirmed that the fun may not be entirely as anticipated, as there will be a limit as to how far it will run.

According to an interview with PC Gamer, the "Diablo 1" remake is not going to re-emerge as a game of its own, as Blizzard Production Designer John Lagrave disclosed. Instead, it will act as an in-game playable that lies within "Diablo III," taking fans to a rather reminiscent ride down memory lane. Sadly, the road is not meant to go forever as it is said that it only runs for a limited time.

This may be disappointing to some, but Blizzard Entertainment believes that this approach will be beneficial to them - not just talking about the "Diablo 1" remake, but all their lined up events as well. This is to make sure that whatever comes to the game is considered special and not just plainly for the sake of doing, as Lagrave explained. As for "Diablo III," patch notes continue to browse the title without the idea as to when it will conclude.

"Diablo III" welcomes "The Armory" feature that enables a five-character load-out storage, as reports delivered. Similar to the "Diablo 1" remake feat, Season contests are made for the players who have a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One - given that it was only made available to PC users before.

The way that the "Diablo 1" remake was added to the system has certainly attracted all players alike, showing just how the two-decade original still has some kick left in it. Revisit GamenGuide for more of the latest news and updates.
