Diablo II was released on June 29, 2000 by Blizzard who also developed the game.. Diablo II is a isometric role playing game.
Diablo II allows the player to choose between five different character classes: Amazon, Necromancer, Barbarian, Sorceress, and Paladin.
Diablo II’s storyline progresses through four chapters or “Acts”. Each act follows a more or less predetermined path, although there is some random-level generation in wilderness areas and dungeons between key cities. The game is not procedurally generated.
The player progresses through the story by completing a series of quests within each act, while there are also optional side dungeons for extra monsters and experience.
In contrast to the original Diablo, whose levels consisted of descending deeper and deeper into a Gothic-themed dungeon and Hell, Diablo II’s environments are much more varied.
Each character has different strengths and weaknesses and sets of skills to choose from, as well as varying beginning attributes. The maximum level that any character can obtain is99.
