Diablo II is over 20 years old and to bring a respected remaster to fans and new players, Blizzard has been vocal about what changes they are making to the game to make it more accessible for all types of players, while still staying true to the original version.
Many qualities of life improvements have been detailed to be coming to the game that fixes many issues surrounding loot-filled ARPGs.
Players will be able to enable an option that allows them to hold a key to pick up items instead of having to consistently click on each individual item, which can place a lot of stress on players' hands.

One of the biggest improvements coming with the remaster is the addition of keybinds.
Players will be able to customize the game to their playstyle, with 12 bindable keys for abilities and the option to bind neutral skills, giving players complete control over the game.
Auto gold pickup was also an option added which can take advantage of, which was originally implemented as a quality of life feature for console players, but was received well by players will limited mobility in their hands during the alpha.
There is also a large amount of Audio accessibility being added, which will allow players to adjust the volume of individual sounds such as items, monsters, and skills.
