Diablo 2 Resurrected is a remastered version of the classic action role-playing game Diablo 2, which was released in 2000. The game features improved graphics, sound, gameplay, cross-progression, and cross-play between PC and consoles. The game also preserves the original game's content and mechanics, including the ladder seasons.
Ladder seasons are competitive game modes in which players race to level up their characters and acquire the best items. Ladder seasons have a limited duration, after which the ladder characters are transferred to the non-ladder mode, and a new season begins. Ladder seasons offer some exclusive rewards and challenges for players who participate in them, such as Diablo 4 ladder-only items, runes, and Runewords.
Diablo 2 Resurrected has followed the same ladder seasons as the original Diablo 2, with minor changes and updates. The current ladder season, season 4, started on May 4, 2023, and is expected to end soon. The next ladder season, season 5, will likely start in September 2023. Here are some of the things that players can expect from Ladder Season 5 of Diablo 2 Resurrected.
New Ladder Characters
To join the ladder season 5, players must create new ladder-only characters that start from level 1. Players can choose from seven classes: Amazon, Assassin, Barbarian, Druid, Necromancer, Paladin, or Sorceress. Each class has its own skills, talents, and playstyles that suit different preferences and strategies.
Players can also choose from four ladder modes: Pre-Expansion Ladder, Pre-Expansion Hardcore Ladder, Ladder, and Hardcore Ladder. Pre-Expansion Ladder and Pre-Expansion Hardcore Ladder are modes that only include the original four acts of Diablo 2, without the Lord of Destruction expansion content. Ladder and Hardcore Ladder are modes that include the five acts of Diablo 2 with the Lord of Destruction expansion content. Hardcore Ladder is a mode that adds an extra challenge by giving players only one life; if they die, their character is permanently deleted.
Exclusive Ladder Rewards
One of the main attractions of ladder seasons is the exclusive rewards that players can obtain by playing them. These rewards include ladder-only items, runes, and Runewords that are unavailable in the non-ladder mode. These rewards are usually more powerful and rare than the regular ones, making them highly sought-after by players.
Ladder Season 5 is expected to be an exciting and competitive game mode for Diablo 2 Resurrected fans. If you want to join the race to Diablo 4 level 99, you should prepare yourself for the upcoming season and get ready to face the forces of Hell. Good luck!
