Diablo Is Now Available for Purchase on GOG

Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the original Diablo is now available on GOG.com for $9.99. The GOG version cannot connect to Battle.net and only supports up to 4 player multiplayer via LAN and P2P connection. The GOG-enhanced version offers several quality of life additions, including minor audio fixes, up-scaling support for resolution and refresh rate control, and compatibility fixes. It still keeps the period-appropriate 20 FPS SVGA graphics! GOG will handle troubleshooting for the game. Blizzard also announced that GOG.com will be the future destination for Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft II.

Darkness stirs beneath Tristram. An ancient evil sweeps across the land, plunging it into civil war and terrorizing the populace. A mad king, his missing son, and a mysterious archbishop are all pieces of the puzzle you need to hack through. You have journeyed to the source of this evil. The town of Tristram - now inhabited only by a handful of survivors, broken and twisted by the madness that has befallen them. A cathedral stands there, built over the ruins of an ancient monastery. Eerie lights and ungodly sounds are heard echoing through its abandoned halls, and that is where you shall venture.
