Blizzard Has Released a Patch For Diablo 2 For The First Time in a Half-Decade

This shows how sad it is when companies can't even patch brand-new games.


When you buy a Blizzard game, you know you're going to get a healthy length of long-term support. However, with patch 1.14 for Diablo 2, released yesterday, Blizzard has really gone above the call of duty. Since Diablo 2's release in 2000, the Twin Towers fell, two presidents have served two terms each, it's amazing to think of just how impressive this game's longevity is.

The 1.14 patch for Diablo 2 introduces Mac OSX support, including a new installer, and improved cheat and hack detection and prevention. Blizzard's statement, "There’s still work to be done, but we’re making improvements every day," seems to indicate that this might just be the first in a series of new patches that will revitalize the aging Diablo 2. Hopefully, we'll see Starcraft: Brood War and Warcraft 3 receive similar treatment.
