GOG.COM releases the unofficial Hellfire Expansion for the Original Diablo today
From Press Release:
JUNE 5, 2019 – After a successful re-release of Blizzard Entertainment’s original action-RPG Diablo® earlier this year, GOG.COM is pleased to offer players a chance to try the Hellfire™ expansion.
Originally developed by Synergistic Software and released in 1997, Hellfire was not an official Blizzard product and did not carry Blizzard’s endorsement or label. Despite that, in response to Diablo players who have expressed a desire to experience the content, Blizzard has given the OK for it to be included as a free add-on with Diablo purchases on GOG.COM.
Hellfire offers a non-canonical single-player storyline where players must defeat a powerful demon named Na-Krul who is threatening Tristram. The expansion also adds a Monk class, new weapons and items, new missions, locations, dungeons, and enemies. Hellfire will be accessible while launching the original Diablo.
The Hellfire expansion comes with high-resolution support and compatibility updates to allow it to run on modern systems, and it’s available now as a free add-on for everyone who purchases the Blizzard classic Diablo on GOG.COM. The game is currently 10% off during the Summer Sale Festival until June 17, 10 PM UTC.
