Blizzard has teamed up with GOG.com to release the original Diablo digitally for the first time.
“We were bummed that these iconic games weren’t available to our players, so we‘re very happy to work with the crew at GOG.com to rectify that,” Rob Bridenbecker, Vice President and Executive Producer at Blizzard Entertainment, said. “This has been a long time coming and we hope our players will be excited to jump back into these classic titles.”
The game is priced at $9.99 and includes two versions: the original 1996 release and an updated version. The original version is just as it was in 1996 and features “period-appropriate 20 FPS SVGA graphics, and the ability to matchmake through the classic version of Blizzard’s Battle.net online-gaming service.” While the updated version has Windows 10 compatibility and a number of bug fixes.
The developer also revealed that Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II will be getting digital releases in the future.
