Loop Hero Has Reached 150,000 Players in 24 Hours
Loop Hero, a deck-building roguelike game from Four Quarters, just launched on Steam, and it’s doing extremely well. In fact, in just 24 hours, the game has surpassed 150,000 players — which is impressive for a game from a small studio. Loop Hero is currently only planned for PC, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it landed on Nintendo Switch at some point.
Our team is overwhelmed by the response to Loop Hero and can't thank all our new community enough – over 150k players already!
Thanks you all so much! pic.twitter.com/iQqJzilPOZ

Diablo II: Resurrected Will Allow Save Transfers from the Original Diablo II
During an interview with IGN Middle East, Matthew Cederquist of Blizzard said you’ll be able to transfer your original Diablo II saves to Diablo II: Resurrected. Specifically, Cederquist said, “Back when we were working on [the remaster], we wondered if the old save files would work and we kind of shoved it in and it worked! And we were like, ‘okay, that’s the best feature ever.’” Diablo II: Resurrected will serve as a remaster of the original 2000 game and will launch in 2021.
