Description

Personally I'm going to go for the PC experience, as that's the way I enjoy most games these days and of course D2 was built for PC. That said, the console development we've seen so far in the Q&As/panels looks amazing, and I've got a feeling that Resurrected is going to be just as popular on consoles.

What about you guys?

I preordered a copy for PC and Xbox. Console will be nice for leveling up or mf runs with a controller on the couch. Otherwise PC for trading, PVPing etc.

I don't have any game consoles so it's going to be PC all the way. I've only known D2 as a mouse clicker. How does it work with a gamepad?

I'm going to play on the PC, as i don't have any consoles. However, there will be controller support on the PC, which I'm looking forward to test myself.

From what i have seen, there is skill bar, which will allow 6 skills that are bound to face keys, bumper and a trigger (I guess you will be able to choose yourself). As for potions, they are used with d-pad. It's best to check it yourself whenever you like it or not.

I kind of wish I could bind 6 skills to the keyboard on the PC version, lol. I know I can bind them to the scroll wheel with F-Keys, but having to scroll through or pick them through hotkeys is a pain.

PC, might end up buying a copy for console at some point.

I am considering getting 2 copies for PC so I can have a BO barb and a sorc for rushing xD

Mainly PC, but I also want it on Nintendo Switch for Portability.

PC all the way. Maybe will get on a switch, as D3 was fun on this console.

Kind of thinking the same - my main job is out at sea (I work onboard a diving vessel) so I'd want something for when I'm away, and from what I've heard D2 will be great on analog controls.

My biggest concern with the switch is if it will actually be able to run D2 without some restrictions.

It’s been noted that the reveal trailer had 8 player multiplayer but with an asterisk, then below the asterisk lists all the consoles but the Nintendo switch (see attached picture). I’m going to stick to Xbox instead just to be safe.

Ah sugar, well spotted. Wonder what that's about - is it an issue where the Switch can't render the graphics for 8 players + spells etc. efficiently enough or something? Does anyone know?

If I had to guess I would say switch might be reduced to 4 player online, or something similar. Probably not a big deal if you just want a portable D2 while traveling. Then you can pickup your progress on PC with full capabilities.
7
PC superior for sure.

PC will be my go to platform. Will probably also play on the Playstation 5 from time to time.

I didnt think of this. Now I'm tempted to get a switch muahaha.

On a side non quoted note. I voted PC because its just home, but I'm going to start on xbox. My wrist has ben bothering me after an abusive 8 month spree in Albion Online, clocking 2.5 months of play time with a kid and career. So I will get both copies and jump back and forth.

That and to just sprawl out with a controller and D2 it up is so inviting.

PC + Switch

Never thought I'd get to play D2 just chilling on the couch or something lol. I'll def do the mindless MF runs on the switch at times because of that.

Yeah, its small size must be a big bonus in limited space on a ship :)
I love how well the console controls work for D3 but it also shows that the game was developed with limited control scheme in mind - compared to D2 / D1 controls it has totally different philosophy. It would be good if the PC versions offered varying control schemes but of course that won't happen due to dev time & cost :)

I'm also thinking of getting the PC + Switch combo, sounds neat with the cross progression and being able to chill with some farming on the couch.

Yep, like the others have mentioned, I have pre-ordered on the PC and will play there mostly - but I own a switch and will definitely buy it for that to for playing on lounge or in bed.
7
PC is definitely my preferred choice, but I'm also considering the Switch just for the portability and the couch playability.
