Diablo II just got its first patch since 2011 (October 27, to be exact). It’s not a content patch, but it helps ensure that the game can run on current platforms. How cool is that?


Here’s Blizzard on Diablo II’s 1.14a patch:

This update focuses on system glitches introduced by modern operating systems. In related news, you can finally retire those old Mac PowerPCs. Included with the update is a shiny new installer for OSX.

We’ve also begun working to improve our cheat-detection and hack-prevention capabilities. There’s still work to be done, but we’re making improvements every day.

There is still a large Diablo II community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us. This journey starts by making Diablo II run on modern platforms, but it does not end there. See you in Sanctuary, adventurers.

Good to see games continuing to get the support they deserve, not just from players but from developers, too.
