At BlizzConline, Blizzard Entertainment revealed the latest details for the amalgamated Vicarious Visions’ work on the iconic Diablo 2 remake: Diablo II Resurrected.

Throughout their extensive history in the gaming sphere, Blizzard Entertainment have created some classic games. From World of Warcraft to Overwatch, there’s a title for everyone.

One of these classics, however, is the Diablo series. In the past year, we’ve seen everything from a Diablo IV announcement to an insane cosplay fusing Diablo and Overwatch’s universes, but there’s still more exciting news about the devilish franchise.

After absorbing Vicarious Visions, the developers seem to have been tasked with remastering the legendary Diablo II. At BlizzConline, the latest fruits of that labor were revealed.

Diablo 2 Resurrected release date

While an exact release date has yet to be announced, it has been confirmed that Diablo 2 Resurrected will be launching sometime in 2021.

Is Diablo 2 Resurrected the same game?

Diablo II originally dropped in 2000, over 20 years ago. Heralded as one of the best games ever made, it’s become yet another one for Blizzard’s already pretty prestigious history books.

Diablo 2 Resurrected is an exact copy of the original title, only with enhanced graphics. It has no new content, but does include new enhanced features.

Diablo II, released in 2000, is still a fan favorite.

Resurrected continues on the current Diablo II Patch, 1.14D, and therefore will carry over all of your prior progress.

Diablo 2 Resurrected new features

As far as the remake goes, the game will feature a full remaster (including shot-for-shot redos of all 27 minutes of cinematics) in high-res 4K with 3D visuals, new animations, and Dolby 7.1 surround sound. (If you want to go old school though, there will also be a “classic graphics” mode.)

Diablo IV has also been announced, with more details at BlizzConline.

Resurrected also boasts cross-platform PvP, alongside changes to ladder season, which they’re looking to decrease from 6 month-windows.

Players will also be able to utilize an advanced stats panel, alongside getting rid of the need for mule characters when it comes to the new live shared stash, which sees players accessing cross-character items.

Diablo 2 Resurrected platforms

As for systems, Blizzard has noted that the game will be available on PC and all consoles (including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch). As a bonus there, the game will also feature cross-progression so that players can keep leveling their characters, no matter the platform closest to them.

The Storm Scout sniper is one of the most sought-after Exotic weapons in Fortnite right now. While the weapon’s been in the game for a while in certain forms, players can now get the rifle with Mave. Here’s how you can find the weapon and the NPC as of February 24.

It’s safe to say that the the Storm Scout is one of the most powerful weapons in Fortnite right now. While the actual damage that it outputs is impressive, it also shows exactly where the storm/circle will form in the future, giving a pretty notable advantage to those who use it.

While the weapon has been available in a variety of ways over the past couple years since it’s inclusion, Epic has now thrown players for a loop by changing up where it’s available.

Mave and Storm Scout sniper rifle location

Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper can now be found with Mave after the latest update from Epic Games.

While the Storm Scout sniper was previously available via the Lexa NPC near Hunter’s Haven, this is no longer the case. Instead, players will now have to travel a little bit further east if they want to pick up the powerful weapon.

As of February 24, the Storm Scout sniper rifle is available via Mave, just east of Catty Corner. Funny enough, she’s is located almost in the same place as Cole, who once sold the Hop Rock Dualies, so if you know where he is, you’ll be able to find Mave with ease.

If you’re still confused about what to do, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out:

  1. Land in the island and go to the location seen in the image above (it’s the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner, overlooking the ocean).
  2. Go up to Mave, who will be looking at a shine-like object on the cliffside.
  3. Interact with Mave and tab over to the Storm Scout sniper.
  4. Purchase the sniper.
  5. The weapon will automatically show up in your inventory after the leave the menu.

Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper costs 500 gold from Mave.

Like most Exotic weapon being sold at NPCs, the Storm Scout sniper rifle will cost players 500 Gold, so if you want the ability to get the weapon, you’ll need to save up a bit.

And that’s it! After you complete the above tasks you’ll have a Storm Scout sniper at your disposal. Of course, given the fact that we’re so close to the launch of Season 6, there’s always a chance that the location will change again in a few weeks.

We’ll keep this article updated for any further developments or changes regarding the sniper’s location should they arise. Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto.
