Three Legacy Blizzard Titles Come To Battle.Net
A return of the classics
Return to the mid-’90s, where two storied universes from Blizzard Entertainment® began, as three of our legacy titles launch today on Battle.net for the first time! This year is the Warcraft universe’s 30th anniversary–the perfect time to revisit the first tales of Azeroth–and hot off the heels of the release of Diablo IV last year, adventurers can experience where it all began in the cursed town of Tristram.
Face the Lord of Terror (again?) in Diablo
Beneath the cathedral of Tristram, past the catacombs and deep caves, a Prime Evil grows in strength. Terror grips the townsfolk. They pray for an adventurer to descend into the darkness, avenge their fallen friends, and save Tristram. Will you answer the call? With three iconic character classes, 16 levels of old-school dungeon delving, and multiplayer demon-slaying, the stage is set for your return to 1997’s Diablo–the title that launched one of gaming’s most enduring action-RPG universes. Diablo is now available on the Battle.net Shop for USD $9.99. For more details, check out the blog.
Revisit the Horde and Alliance origins in Warcraft: Orcs & Humans
As fearsome invaders from another world threaten the peace, Azeroth calls for a hero to lead its human defenders in battle…or conquer this realm in the name of the orcish Horde! Explore two dozen missions across two separate campaigns, battle your friends in 2-player versus mode, and more! If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to fight at the dawn of the Warcraft saga, this is your chance to see how it all began. The very first game in the Warcraft universe and Blizzard’s first RTS, 1994’s Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, is now available in the Battle.net Shop for USD $5.99. To learn more, head on over to Battle.net.
Fight for honor in Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
The greatest strategists of the Alliance and the Horde race towards a terrifying clash as war continues to rage across Azeroth. It’s up to you to defend this world and its people…or crush these pitiful weaklings and claim their realm for the Horde! Follow both factions in 28 missions across two epic campaigns, go Beyond the Dark Portal once you’ve completed the Tides of Darkness, and get creative with the Warcraft II map editor. Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness is available now for USD $9.99 – details on the website.
