This year’s event, which was held in commemoration of the company’s 30th anniversary, was held online in the aftermath of a novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19).

The content that received the most attention at this event was the remastered version of the Remastered version of the remastered version of’Diablo 2′, which is said to be synonymous with the action role playing game (RPG) genre, and the expansion pack’Lord of Destruction’. Diablo 2 is a masterpiece that received praise from Time magazine as “the best RPG of all time, the best dungeon exploration game of all time, and the best PC game of all time.” Resurrection has realized the gloomy story and fierce battles that are representative features of the game with the latest high-quality graphics so that not only gamers who have previously played Diablo 2 but also new gamers can enjoy. The original 2D sprite-based work was presented in 4K resolution using 3D physics-based rendering.

Blizzard plans to release this game for PCs, as well as consoles (home game consoles) such as Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch this year. Blizzard President Jay Allen Brack said, “Diablo 2 is an important game for Blizzard and for millions of players around the world. I am excited to show this classic masterpiece not only on PCs but also on consoles through Resurrection.”

Blizzard also unveiled the Blizzard Arcade Collection, which updated and introduced the company’s early hits,’Lost Viking’,’Rock’n’Roll Racing’, and’Blackthorne’ to suit the latest platform.

In addition to the release of new contents, this event attracted attention by holding e-sports events in the’StarCraft Remaster’ and’Overwatch’ events, as well as a surprise performance by K-pop group Mamamoo.
