Despite the fact that Blizzard Entertainment has not yet provided a detailed breakdown of everything that this patch includes, the company has stated that players can expect a significant number of bug fixes and other improvements as a result of the patch's release. In a blog post published a few weeks ago, the developer shared some details about the accessibility and visual improvements that have been implemented in the game, including Nvidia DLSS support, which we were previously unaware of Diablo 2 Resurrected Runes.
Nvidia's technology will prove to be a godsend for gamers who want to increase their frame rates without having to go through the hassle and expense of upgrading their gaming PC. The use of artificial intelligence upscaling allows it to maintain high image quality even when rendering games at a lower target resolution, which is particularly useful for gaming. Unfortunately, an Nvidia graphics card is required in order to take advantage of the feature, and there is no indication that AMD FSR will be supported in the near future.
However, given the already-low system requirements for Diablo 2: Resurrection, we're not entirely sure how beneficial Nvidia DLSS will be. However, it's nice to have the option.
Players will have even more key binding options for various abilities thanks to a new feature introduced by Blizzard Entertainment: the addition of an Active Skill Bindings bar. This feature was only available in the console versions of the game in previous versions because the developer was concerned that it would detract too much from the overall experience if it were made available on the PC version. However, the overwhelming amount of positive community feedback requesting this feature has, in the long run, helped to alleviate this concern.
According to the lawsuit, filed in July by the state of California (which has since been expanded to include quality assurance and customer service contractors), Activision Blizzard has engaged in years of discrimination and harassment against its employees and customers. According to Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, the company's initial response was deafeningly insensitive. In response, employees staged a walkout, Blizzard president J Allen Brack resigned, and the ABK Workers Alliance demanded that the company change its business practices, a demand that the company refused to meet. While the lawsuit is still in progress, you can keep up to date with the latest developments by checking this page regularly.
In connection with an investigation into the company's response to sexual misconduct and discrimination complaints lodged by its employees, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick has reportedly been subpoenaed, according to reports. Several months are expected to pass before the conclusion of the investigation, which began in September and is being carried out by an agency of the United States federal government. Meanwhile, a labor union has filed a lawsuit against the company, accusing it of engaging in unfair labor practices such as worker intimidation and union busting. Another development involves Activision Blizzard, which announced that it had reached an agreement with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in order to settle claims as well as to further strengthen policies and programs designed to prevent harassment and discrimination. An employee letter sent to all of the company's employees later announced the termination of forced arbitration, as well as the launch of a $250 million initiative to improve diversity and a significant pay cut for CEO Kotick.
According to a new report published in November, Bobby Kotick was aware of and actively suppressed reports of sexual misconduct during his tenure as president of the United States. Following the publication of the article in the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Kotick issued a formal statement in which he stated that the article painted an inaccurate and misleading picture of our company, as well as of myself and my executive leadership team, and that he regretted the situation. On being asked whether the board of directors at Activision Blizzard were confident in Kotick's ability to lead the company, the board of directors responded by saying that they were.
