Diablo 1 Is Being Sold Digitally For The First Time, And More Blizzard Classics Are On The Way

It’s sometimes to easy to dismiss Blizzard, but let’s not forget it’s the company behind some of the best games of all-time, including the likes of the Diablo franchise.

If you never had the chance to play the original Diablo game all the way from 1996 then you’re in for a treat, as it’s just become available for digital download for the first time ever thanks to GOG.com.

The new partnership between GOG and Blizzard isn’t just bringing Diablo to the table though, as a whole slew of classic Blizzard games are planned for release in the future.

Warcraft: Orcs & Humans and Warcraft II have already been announced, and it’s likely we’ll be seeing even more offerings as the months go by.

As for the newly-released Diablo, you can pick up one of two versions of the game: either the bare bones edition (which includes everyone’s favourite Battle.net matchmaking and a very nostalgia 20 frames per second) or there’s also a deluxe version of the game which has been optimised for Windows 10 (but there’s no Battle.net matchmaking for this version!)

Costing just £7.89 (just over $10 USD), Diablo is 100% worth picking up for some serious weekend nostalgia. Download it from GOG.com right here.

We’re hoping for some seriously great classic games coming to GOG via its partnering with Blizzard.

What classic and old-school games would you like to see published again thanks to this new partnership between GOG.com and Blizzard?
