Earlier today, the Diablo YouTube channel followed up the release of the Barbarian trailer with a brand-new video that takes a 37-second look into the Paladin class in Diablo II: Resurrected. This melee-focused character appears to have all of the same tools from the original, just with a shiny new coat of paint.
The Paladin class is known for its physical strength and that’s on display right away in this trailer. At the start, we see the Paladin bashing an enemy with their shield in their left hand and slashing at another with the sword in their right. But as any Diablo fan knows, there’s much more to this class than running into a crowd of enemies and defeating them all with brawn alone.
There are many skills that the Paladin can learn to augment the class’ already formidable physical strength. Skills like Holy Bolt, Fist of the Heavens, and Blessed Hammer make this class arguably one of the best in classic Diablo II. In the trailer, a few of the skills are shown off absolutely laying waste to entires screens of enemies.
There’s no way to tell for sure if the Paladin class will be as good in the remake as it is in the original game, but so far this trailer is making these versatile warriors look incredibly powerful.
Diablo II: Resurrected is available for pre-order right now and is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch in just a few weeks on Sept. 23. You can find the official Paladin Class trailer for the game down below.
