The original 1996 Diablo is now available for the first time digitally on GOG.com. Fans of Blizzard's classic RPG can choose between two modes; an old-school version with 20 FPS, SVGA graphics and Battle.net multiplayer support, or a more modern version with out-of-the-box Windows 10 compatibility, bug fixes and high-resolution support. Windows users can go to GOG.com and download the re-release for $9.99; there's no need to download the Blizzard app. Unfortunately, Mac users are left in the dust: The company told Engadget that this release is Windows-only and didn't say if it would create a Mac-friendly version of Diablo in the future.

Expect more games to come as a result of this new partnership between Blizzard and popular gaming marketplace GOG.com. A digital version of Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft 2 is in the works. Blizzard Entertainment would not confirm an exact date for the Warcraft releases to Engadget, only saying that it'll happen soon.
