Simu Liu Stars in a New Stay-Motion Trailer for Diablo 2: Resurrected
At present, type of out of nowhere, a brand new trailer for Diablo II: Resurrected was launched and it’s, nicely, actually totally different. For starters, it’s live-action and it additionally options Marvel star Simu Liu, as a “sinner.”
Within the trailer, Liu performs an unnamed man (presumably the participant character?) in search of permission from some type of priest to commit acts of sins in opposition to the Lord of Terror, Diablo, believing the one solution to defeat darkness is to descend into darkness himself.
The trailer is fairly quick and there’s not a lot else apart from what I described, however it’s nonetheless a fairly neat little video to get gamers overestimated for the discharge in two days.
The timing of the discharge of this trailer is a bit unlucky for Activision-Blizzard, nevertheless, as Liu goes via a little bit of controversy this week. Some individuals are claiming to have dug up a Reddit account of Liu’s that purports some inflammatory takes; claims that Liu hasn’t but firmly denied or confirmed, however has appeared to acknowledge. True or not, it’s a bit awkward throughout, particularly contemplating Activision-Blizzard is working via some points themselves proper now.
I can’t think about the reply as to whether or not Liu stated tousled stuff on Reddit previously goes to have a lot bearing on folks’s enjoyment of Diablo II: Resurrected, although, when it launches on Sept. 23 on all main consoles and PC. So simply benefit from the trailer beneath, or don’t, it’s as much as you.
The response to the trailer has been principally constructive if Likes/Dislikes are something to go off of. Though there’s a greater share of Dislikes than you’d usually discover in your common promotional materials.
