Diablo 2: Resurrected was welcomes by and large by the Diablo community, but the game has some serious issues that the devs need to address. At the time of writing, the game does not support or run on CPUs that don’t support AVX (Advanced Vector Extension) set. Most users of older CPUs won’t be able to run the game as their processors do not support the extension. This is a problem as a large majority of the gamers are still on CPUs that do not support the extension. Keep reading and we will share all there is to know about the extension set and if there is Diablo 2: Resurrected AVX Fix.
Can you Fix Diablo 2: Resurrected AVX Issues
Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do that’s worthwhile to fix the error. Some tweaking on the Hex editor has allowed players on other games like Cyberpunk 2077, Teardown, etc. to bypass the limitation put by the AVX extension, but frankly, it’s too much work with no guaranteed result, so we will not post it here.
There is some good news though for players with the Diablo 2: Resurrected AVX issue. The developers are aware of the problem and working on fixing the issue. An update was shared by the devs on the Blizzard forum that notes that they have discovered a solution to fix the AVX problem. The solutions will be tested for a few days and then, rolled in a patch.
So, it won’t be long before you will be able to enjoy the game without having to update the CPU or go through tedious technical troubleshooting.
If you have a system that’s older than 2011 or your CPU version is prior to the year, it’s likely that you don’t have the AVX extension set and are unable to play the game in its current state.
In other news, users on Windows 7 are also struggling with a range of issues when it comes to launching the game, we hope that the devs have some fix for that as well. That’s all for now, we will update the post when we know more about the issue.
