Project Diablo 2: Season 7 Revelation - the latest version of which has just dropped - is described as "for and by passionate Diablo 2 fans" with the aim to "maintain the Lord of Destruction experience and provide consistent ladder resets while improving on the game as if development never ceased".
And not only does the latest update introduce a host of new features, including new maps, skill changes, Items, rares, uniques, and easier/harder Dclone/Rathma, but also 60fps, too.

ICYMI, Diablo 4's Nightmare dungeons will scale beyond level 100, but Blizzard says there's something of a final boss encounter that's designed to be your character's capstone.
In a recent interview, associate game director Joe Piepiora confirmed that Nightmare dungeons will keep getting more challenging even past level 100, but that there is a limit to the game's difficulty, adding that Diablo 4 wasn't designed to endlessly scale with your character and that you'll eventually face a "pinnacle boss encounter" that'll test the limits of even the best level 100 builds.
"[Diablo 4] is not intended to be played forever. So there are creatures that you will continue to fight at higher and higher difficulties [beyond level 100], but this is content where you'll be kind of pushing yourself to see how far you can take your build, rather than trying to reach some endless grind of rewards as time goes on beyond level 100."
Can't wait for that June 6 release date? Don't miss out on the new Diablo 4 open beta taking place in May.
