Blizzard Entertainment announced that it will release some of its classic games on GOG.com, starting with Diablo.
GOG.com and Blizzard collaborated on an updated version of the original Diablo, which includes compatibility with Windows 10, a host of bug fixes, and support for higher resolution graphics.
Players can also choose to play the game exactly as it was in 1996, complete with 20fps SVGA graphics, and the ability to matchmake through the classic version of Blizzard's Battle.net online-gaming service.
You can select to play either version of the game from a launcher.
In addition to bringing back the original Diablo, Blizzard is planning other GOG.com re-releases of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II.
Blizzard and GOG said that more information on the return to Azeroth will be revealed soon.
"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," said Rob Bridenbecker, vice president and executive producer at Blizzard Entertainment. "This has been a long time coming and we hope our players will be excited to jump back into these classic titles."
"Crawling through the original Diablo's dungeons, together with Blizzard, is a feeling of pure excitement," said Oleg Klapovsky, SVP at GOG. "It's a personal thing for many of us, and the most wished-for game in our community. Taking the first few steps beneath the Tristram Cathedral, listening to the guidance of Cain the Elder—it's all coming back, for old souls and newcomers alike.”
Diablo is available on GOG.com for $9.99.
