The re-released Diablo has two modes: the original game from 1996 with Battle.net multiplayer matchmaking support, and an updated “DX” version that’s optimized for Windows 10.Althoughh the updated version doesn’t have Battle.net support, it has DirectIP multiplayer. The updates are resolution and refresh-rate control, vertical synchronization control, borderless windowed mode, aspect ratio-correct upscaling, and bug fixes.

Here’s the game’s official description:
“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.”
