Blizzard deploys a Diablo II patch after more than four years

The 'ablo'

There is not a typo in that title. Blizzard Entertainment has released an unexpected patch for Diablo II. Yes, the second game in the series, not Diablo III, the one that was released shortly before the extinction of the dinosaurs. It’s the first patch the game has received in four years, and not one that most of the community had probably expected to ever have released.

Before you get too excited, it’s important to note that the patch’s primary purpose is to make the game compatible with modern operating systems rather than adding extensive new content. Still, it’s an altogether unexpected patch, and that alone merits a mention. Now, a new expansion, that’d be really unexpected.
