Diablo II Expansion to Support 800x600
8:34 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
This information was released several days ago, but we haven't seen it widely broadcasted on the Web so we thought it was worth mentioning here. GameSpot and several other sources have confirmed that Blizzard has added a new, slightly-higher resolution option to Diablo II: Lord of Destruction that will allow users to play the game at 800x600 rather than the 640x480 limit imposed before. This will result in a wider field of view and a minor improvement in visual quality for most gamers, at a slight cost in perfromance and an increase in RAM usage.
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction is the expansion to the million-selling original, and is due this summer; a simultaneous release is expected.
New Resolution Comparison at DiabloII.Net
Update: fansite DiabloII.net has posted a comparison of 800x600 to 640x480 along with details on how this is accomplished, if you are interested.
