Diablo II Receives New Patch That Improves Modern OS Compatibility

In a rather interesting turn of events, Blizzard has released a new patch for one of their undisputed classics, Diablo II. The patch fixes a number of problems that incurred with modern operating systems like OS X, which is also getting a new installer. On top of that, the developers are improving cheat detection and hack prevention and are seemingly planning bigger things for the future:

This update focuses on system glitches introduced by modern operating systems. In related news, you can finally retire those old Mac PowerPCs. Included with the update is a shiny new installer for OSX.

We've also begun working to improve our cheat-detection and hack-prevention capabilities. There's still work to be done, but we're making improvements every day.

There is still a large Diablo II community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us. This journey starts by making Diablo II run on modern platforms, but it does not end there. See you in Sanctuary, adventurers.
