Diablo 2 receives a new patch after four years

Diablo 2

The last time Diablo 2 was updated was way back in 2011.  That’s just changed because the ever-popular isometric dungeon crawler recently received a new update, patch 1.14a.

The patch can now be downloaded and focuses on dealing with system glitches when running the game on modern operating systems.

The update brings with it a new OSX installer as well as cheat-detection and hack-prevention improvements.

It’s interesting that Diablo 2‘s legacy lives on with Battle.net servers, with the game still up and running.

The community is still very much alive and kicking, and shows us what a high quality game Diablo 2 really is.

It’s amazing that such an old game still gets support from Blizzard. Moreover, in the announcement Blizzard said the following:

There is still a large Diablo 2 community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us. This journey starts by making Diablo 2 run on modern platforms, but it does not end there. See you in Sanctuary, adventurers.

Speculation suggests that Blizzard legacy titles like Diablo 2 and WarCraft 3 will be integrated into the modern Battle.net client.

Perhaps, we may even see some new content added to these awesome games. Share your thoughts with us below.
