A hero must rise
Diablo, the Lord of Terror, has fallen to a brave hero beneath the church of Tristram. Now that hero is gone, replaced by a Dark Wanderer who roams the world of Sanctuary leaving death and destruction in his wake. As a hero of humanity, you must face the minions of Diablo’s evil brothers and stop the Dark Wanderer before he fulfills his terrible destiny.
Become a legendary hero
Battle Hell’s minions as the Amazon, Sorceress, Necromancer, Paladin, or Barbarian, each with unique skills and abilities. As you journey across the immense world of Sanctuary, you’ll learn new skills, find powerful new weapons and armor, and enhance your gear with magic as your hero’s power and legend grow.
Master multiple levels of difficulty
As you grow in power, you can take on the minions of Diablo in Nightmare Mode for greater challenge and greater rewards. Grow strong enough and enter Hell Mode, where your foes become truly fearsome, but the rewards are epic!

Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
Defeat the last Prime Evil
The expansion to Diablo II adds a host of new features to the game, including two new playable classes – the shapeshifting Druid and the cunning Assassin. Explore the snowy homeland of the Barbarians, face fiendish new monsters, and arm yourself with thousands of new weapons, armor, and magical items in the fight against Baal, the last of the Prime Evils.
Two new character classes
Unleash the fury of 60 new skills and spells as the stealthy Assassin, who employs a deadly array of traps and martial arts, or the shapeshifting Druid, with his powerful nature magic and minions. Both new characters can be played through the original four acts of Diablo II as well as the new fifth act.
Defeat a new army of evil
You have put an end to Diablo’s vile reign, but now a final challenge arises. Baal has fled into the frozen highlands of the North, and you must pursue him to save the mortal plane from eternal corruption. Battle over a dozen fiendish new monsters, including Overseers, Putrid Defilers, and the Reanimated Horde, as you fight through fortified battlements and face relentless siege engines.
