Blizzard Celebrates 20 Years of Diablo II

Today is the 20th anniversary Diablo II, as Blizzard's action/RPG sequel was first released on June 29, 2000. This post discusses what they are doing to celebrate the occasion, which includes a new video from your best friend Carbot, a retrospective article, a Lord of Terror bust, a wings giveaway in Diablo III, and more:
In the process, we’ve dreamed up some cool stuff, and we hope you’ll check it out and celebrate with us.

  • To start, watch Baal Runz 101, a video developed by animation sorcerer Carbot Studios that we think is among his funniest work yet—and maybe the truest depiction of battling the Lord of Destruction.
  • Read our Diablo II retrospective, with comments from Blizzard employees who’ve grown up developing, playing, and hanging out in the world of Sanctuary.
  • Follow speedrun record-setter MrLlamaSC on a day-long live speedrun through Diablo II beginning at 9 am PT today. He’ll be playing through the entire game up to and including the Pandemonium event and conquering the “Uber” bosses.
  • Bear witness to the unspeakable evil that is this limited-edition Lord of Terror bust. It looms 9” wide by 7-1/8” deep by 10-1/2” tall–the perfect size to desecrate your computer desk. Diablo’s never looked more terrifying (or more enthusiastic).
  • Log in to Diablo III any time after June 29 to unlock your own tendinous Prime Evil Wings and represent the legacy you forged on Arreat Summit. Baal—as we saw in him in Diablo II—did not have wings, but try to imagine what they would’ve looked like if he did, and if you could’ve fastened them to your hero’s shoulders.

Its to bad Blizz is to stupid that they lacked the foresight to of had a 20 year Remastered edition released today. But, this is typical of Blizz.

When I saw the article, I had the same exact thought. Glad I wasn't the only one.
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
