It looks like it’s not just cult classic Diablo II that’s getting a lick of fresh paint this week, as Blizzard has now released a compatibility patch for its classic strategy game Warcraft III. Patch 1.27a is the first update to the game in over four years and contains mostly fixes to make the game run properly on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, and a new installer for Mac OS 10.10 and 10.11. Older versions of the Mac OS are not supported and are causing crashes, but the patch has been otherwise well received.
Blizzard has been responding to questions and comments on the Warcraft III forum and has promised that more patches will follow. The team won’t be limiting itself to just bug-fixes and compatibility improvements either, with “a balance change and new map pool” still to come.
