Watch the Diablo 2 Resurrected Cinematic comparison videos

With the release of the new cinematics earlier today we thought it would be fun to compare the old with the new in these Diablo 2 Resurrected cinematic comparison videos.

In the following videos we’ve put the Act 1 and Act 2 trailers from the new D2R cinematics next to the original cinematics to who exactly how they have been remastered.

The length and audio are practically identical although matching it up was a bit of a challenge on each video. It’s obvious there’s been a lot of time and effort gone into remastering these two videos. Take a look.

I remember being blown away by the original in 2000, it's still good for the time. Blizzard Film Department always did cracking jobs with their cinematics.

I love the moment when Baal rocked up to the Arreat Summit on that cart and the camera zooms in for the tiniest of smirks and he puts his wee finger up to this mouth (Dr Evil style but way before that) before he explodes a guy guarding the massive double doors. That was the cine for Lord of Destruction.

The other one was the Warcraft one with the Orc and Knight fighting in a field and it starts off with a Raven plucking out an eyeball.

Funny how this gets me hyped up for a game I've got access to already.

Shiny thing syndrome.
