Diablo has been released on GOG, with other Blizzard classics to follow

While this is technically Diablo's first disc-free release, the original Diablo did have a shareware version of the game, playable without the disc, called Diablo Spawn.

Diablo first released in 1996, and Blizzard say that the GOG experience will remain faithful to the original release, with traditional graphics and classic Battle.Net matchmaking, but if you'd rather a slightly updated experience, you're still covered.

Upon purchase, you can choose which version of the game to launch whenever you start it up, so feel free to switch back and forth.

Diablo is available from today on GOG.com for just $9.99. You also get a DirectX version of the game complete with tweaks directly from GOG.

Blizzard has announced that the original Diablo is now available via digitial distribution for the first time.

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. "This has been a long time coming and we hope our players will be excited to jump back into these classic titles".

GOG's collab with Blizzard has seen them not only re-release Diablo in its ye olde 20fps form (with online Battle.net multiplayer fixed) but also whack together a fancified version.

Much to the joy of gamers everywhere, Blizzard recently has made a decision to re-release one of its most legendary titles, Diablo.
