Quite a bit of people have fond memories playing Diablo II, whether it was a game they secretly played as kids or a game that they recently got into. Blizzard is aware of the nostalgia that fans hold for the game, and this latest entry in the series makes sure to cater towards those precious memories of slaying demons. This is how to play Diablo II: Resurrected with the original graphics.

While this remake touts modern graphics and a style more in-line with current Diablo, there’s a certain level of charm that fans of the original title find in it’s primitive graphics. As with any remake, there’s care that must go into the game to ensure that it will be a title both newcomers and veterans can enjoy. The addition of this neat feature is meant for the old-school demon slayers who want to relive this adventure as they did the first time, and the best part is that it isn't that hard to do.

To access the legacy graphics in Diablo II: Resurrected, all players need to do is find the “Legacy” button on the top-right corner while browsing through the menus to swap the style. Players must click the same button again if they’d like to return to the Resurrected graphics.

There’s also a simpler way to swap the graphics on PC, and that’s by pressing the G key on the keyboard to swap the look on the fly. This hotkey works no matter what the player is in, and can even be done in combat.

Diablo II: Resurrected released on Sept. 23 for Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and the Nintendo Switch.
