    Diablo 1 Added, Warcraft 1 & 2 Coming Soon
    Online Play Available Without Battle.net & LAN Support is Included
    GOG's bundle comes packed with two versions of Diablo 1. The first is a "vanilla" version, which runs on the game's 1.09b codebase with only one noticeable tweak: a scaling fix to ensure that the game renders at its original 4:3 screen ratio, no matter your display size (even though it otherwise transforms your screen in a way that resizes background windows in Windows 10). In comparison, trying to run the game via a mix of the original CD-ROM and official patch files can lead to a stretchy screen, should you not install any third-party mods.

    The second included version is a DirectX-fueled build of the game, whose extra tweaks were built entirely in-house by GOG. Among these are support for a variety of resolutions and refresh rates, a "borderless window" option, a v-sync toggle, a gamma slider, and a pair of visual filters: anisotropic filtering up to 16x and anti-aliasing up to 8x MSAA.

    If a smeary-looking Diablo 1 experience sounds good to you, go ahead and toggle that MSAA. But purists will appreciate another option in the menus: "integer scaling," which guarantees that the game's original pixels map to a 1:1 ratio, in all of their pixellated, 16-bit color-depth glory. In GOG's "DX" version of Diablo 1, the anti-aliased version does feel slightly smoother in motion, but the game's art style and animations were never meant to be covered in pixel-obscuring Vaseline. Thus, make sure to enable integer scaling.

    On 1 hand, outsourcing their retro game remasters to GoG is a good move cause they have experience with it.

    On the other hand, I find it hilarious that the first company to release a remastered retro Blizzard game that people have been waiting for wasn't Blizzard.

    Here's to hoping for Diablo 2.

    Starcraft Remastered doesn't count?

    Will pick this up, 10/10 will leave stacks of gold lying around Tristram.

    They really should have added the option that the third-party Hellfire expansion added, which was doubled movement speed while in town. I also find it damn weird this was outsourced and not an internal job as Prothescar mentioned.

    A shame that Fighter is still the most useless class in the game later on due to shield block animations taking priority over all else.
