Blizzard is still supporting one of its classic games.

The developer announced today that it has released a new patch for Diablo II, an action role-playing game that the company released back in 2000. The update focuses on making the title playable on modern PC operating systems.

“There is still a large Diablo II community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us,” Blizzard noted on its site. “This journey starts by making Diablo II run on modern platforms, but it does not end there.”

Blizzard noted that it wants to improve cheat-detection and hack-prevention in future updates.

Diablo III, Diablo II’s successor, came out in 2012, and it’s still popular with fans. However, some prefer Diablo II for its more old-school sensibilities (many were upset to see Diablo III get rid of skill trees, a sort of player progression that has you picking new skills along branching paths). It’s nice to see Blizzard support those fans by continuing to work on such an old game.
