Fans of Diablo II have for the longest time been complaining about how the game doesn’t work properly on Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems. Blizzard itself admits that the update has been a “long time coming.”
The studio stated today in an official Battle.net post that the update is intended to deal with the system glitches introduced by modern operating systems like Windows 10 and OSX. Mac gamers who don’t intend on switching to the PC any time soon can now enjoy Diablo II on their brand new MacBook Airs running on the latest version of OSX.
“You can finally retire those old Mac PowerPCs,” Blizzard noted, releasing new PC and OSX versions of the game.
The studio also says that it’s working to improve their cheat-detecting and hack-prevention capabilities to deal with the raft of cheaters that have infested the Battle.net servers over the past couple of years.
“There’s still work to be done, but we’re making improvements every day,” they stated.
“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.”
You can download the new installer directly from Battle.net.
