Welcome to DIABLO: THE HELL 2 mod homepage!


Greetings! I am Mordor. Author of The Hell 1 and The Hell 2 mods.

The Hell 1 is a playable Hellfire mod. Time-proven (in development since 2006), solid design, stability, rich content, immersive gameplay, true to Diablo 1 in every aspect and balanced near perfection. You want to play - this is your choice. Confirmed to work with Diablo GOG version.

The Hell 2 is a new Ultra HD mod for Hellfire (yes, it can run in 4K). It's in development right now, but available for beta testing. v1.0000 release is planned for July 26, 2019. We mainly have multiplayer bugs to fix. TH2 offers a lot of content, features and updates (full list will be available with the release of v1.0000 but the main ones are below):
1. Based on Hellfire, so it adds at least 50% more content than any other mod right now, right from the start. And in truth, it's more like +500% (and before you ask, yes, it removes/corrects controversial decisions from Hellfire that David Brevik was salty about): 24 basic dungeon levels and even more special quest levels in Singleplayer mode.
2. New engine: full support for ultra HD, wide screen, window modes, borderless, fullscreen, switching them on the fly (Alt + Enter), higher framerates (up to 80fps).
3. Functioning multiplayer (through Hamachi / ZerotierIPX wrapper).
4. ALL of the original Diablo bugs fixed. You can check DSF buglist on lurkerlounge if you dont trust it.
5. A lot of content and modernized gameplay features: items, monsters, music, randomizations.
6. Darker atmosphere of the game. Even more diabolic than original.
7. 29 new and changed classes to play: Warriors, Archers, Sorcerers, Monks, Rogues and Savages.
8. Rich options to configure: adjust the style of play to your own individual needs.
9. 4 game modes to choose from: Normal, Hardcore, Ironman and Nightmare.
10. 3 new item slots: gloves, boots, belts. 3 weapon slots to alternate between.
11. Expanded inventory. 10 x 7 instead of just 10 x 4 now.

What are The Hell mods and why were they created?
Diablo 1 wasn't a game that its development team were given the time to finish properly. I saw a lot of unleashed potential in it. First, it's based on Hellfire. So, it has 50% more content than other Diablo mods. Second, I made it all feel like Diablo experience by removing or fixing goofy stuff from Hellfire. After about 13 years in development The Hell grew so big that it outruns Hellfire by 10 times when it comes to decisions implemented: fixes, content, gameplay features, balance.

My mission is to create an ultimate action-RPG, with the most succesful gamedesign ideas from the most popular aRPG games mixed into one game, plus add my own ideas to that, that were successful in TH1, plus highly flexible system of options to allow each player to fine-tune the mod for their own personal preference. I believe TH2 will become addictive and enjoyable mod in the end. By the way, when TH2 is ready, we will start developing the new mod Abaddon.

Now, the blog below is a place where I post some unique content regarding mods Diablo: TH1 and TH2. Development news, screenshots, videos, polls, educational posts and guides. Lots of technical stuff. Sometimes I ask for opinions to get some feedback. Things like that.

Mod creators can't sell what they are making, mods always have to be free. But we create mods for you players, and we only have you players who can support our effort. Without your support, no development can take place. By helping ME, you allow me to spend more time on the mod development and less time on other jobs to earn the living. And eventually that helps YOU in return because you can enjoy a better quality mod as a player. That's all there is to it. 

Around half the posts here are in free access. Basic main information is always in free access here. That's a rule with no exceptions. The other half is for patrons only, and it often provides additional information: behind the scenes of what's going on in the development, some screenshot sneakpeeks, videos, my analytics on various topics regarding Diablo 1 and the mods, some polls regarding certain adjacent topics, intermediate mod build releases, etc. For only $1 per month you get access to all the basic patron-only content and for $5 you will be able to download intermediate versions. Also, you witness the mod being developed faster because this allows me to pay more attention to it. See Rewards column to the right for a full list of amazing rewards you can get depending on the Tier you choose (rewards are actual for the duration of patronage, except for tiers of $50 and $100: these never expire). So, support the mod, because you are all that I got here. Every dollar matters, pledge whatever sum you are comfortable with. Subs are appreciated regardless of pledge sum.

Pledges go toward the mod, making it better for everyone.
