Hell has broken loose all over again with the launch of Diablo 2 Resurrected and Twitch streamer ‘AnnacakeLIVE’ celebrated the release with an impressive cosplay for Deckard Cain.
After years of anticipation, players are getting ready to face the hoards of evil once again with the remaster of Diablo 2. With the title’s classic hack-and-slash gameplay intact, longtime fans are eager to hop back into the fray.
One such person is longtime Diablo content creator Annacake who showed up to her first D2R broadcast with a Deckard Cain outfit to mark the occasion.
Plenty of audience members stayed awhile and listened to the streamer as she plunged into the remaster on launch day.
“I’m sorry for the silent stream because with my freakin voice I ruined it all,” she said after quietly starting the stream for her fans to bask in the cosplay’s glory. “I [Deckard Cain], was resurrected a little bit earlier.”
Taking requests from the fans, Anna recited plenty of famous one-liners from the Diablo franchise that Deckard is known for.
