For those of you still playing Diablo II, Blizzard has announced a new 1.14a patch for the venerable roguelike action-RPG from 2000 that updates the game to run better on modern machines. This patch is the first official update for the game since 2011's.
According to a post on, "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."
The update also addresses cheat and hack detection that is inevitable with most older online multiplayer games. "There’s still work to be done, but we’re making improvements every day," promises Blizzard.
Diablo II was released back in 2000, and has been supported over the past 16 years with various updates, some that removed copy protection and CD-checking along with the usual gameplay tweaks.
