No Diablo 2 Resurrected ultrawide support even for single player

There’s been a lot of discussion about Diablo 2 Resurrected ultrawide support and some players were disappointed to see how it was being handled.

In multiplayer it’s understandable why itwas implemented the way it currently is, but what about single player? Could Blizzard make it work? Well, apparently not according to Rod Fergusson.

It will. The original game was designed for 4×3 and 800×600 resolution. The gameplay breaks down when you go to ultrawide resolutions so we added the vignette to maintain the integrity of the gameplay.

So there you have it, there is no ultrawide support for any game type. I doubt it will affect a massive amount of people but for those who can go ultrawide, they’ll be disappointed.

Disappointing, but not surprising. Not that I actually have an ultrawide screen mind you. Even if gameplay issues weren't a factor, there's probably only something like, less than one percent of the playerbase that has the money to burn on something like that.

Diablo 2 Resurrected ultrawide support it off the menu according to Rod Fergusson.

Check out the full article

Hey I am new to your site but I am returning D2 fan and really stoked on the ressurection so far. Did you test whether ultrawide works or was the article based on whatever release was quoted? I have a 34" monitor with a native 21:9 3440x1440 resolution. Not only does it work it looks amazing and I have a very old gpu (R9 290 4GB) Another possible workaround I dicovered recently has worked well for me and its not well known. AMD video card compant Sapphire has its own hardware monitor suite called TRIXX and it has an option to select a lower resolution but scaled to natiove resolution. TRIXX create a new custom resolution at same 21:9 scale and it has helped with FPS framerates. That isnt a problem here but you should be able to do a manual ultrawide in custom resolutions in the AMD suite. But I know Asus also a new GPU tool I tried but the Sapphire worked great at giving me more ultra wide options. Only hitch is when you apply tweak your game mat hang or crash but after restarting the new custom res was in game settings as a selectable option.

That's only if you zoom in though from the sounds of it. Which means that in practical terms the black bars on the sides would go away, but you'd have lost some ground vertically. If you zoom out again, the black bars would come back.

Just want to make sure there's no misunderstanding on that. It's a good thing, but it's not the full ultrawide support everyone would like.
