Warcraft 3 Is Back With Patch 1.27

Warcraft 3 Is Back With Patch 1.27

The last patch for Warcraft 3 was back in 2011, but it seems like Blizzard has been trying to update older games to be compatible with newer systems. A few days ago, Diablo 2 got a compatibility patch, and now patch 1.27 gives Warcraft 3 the same type of update.

The patch makes it so you can play Warcraft 3 with a modern systems, you can find the patch notes below:

Specific Changes and Improvements

  • Throw away that old PowerPC Mac in the closet, we’ve created a new installer to support Mac 10.10 and 10.11
  • Improved compatibility with Windows 7, 8.1, and 10
  • Fixed a crash caused by Chain Lightning

Known Issues
  • Windows 8.1 and 10 saved games are still stored in a location that requires running as system admin
  • Some graphical issues with the cinematics are still occurring
  • Changes to gamma settings will not take effect in windowed mode
  • Cyrillic characters are still not displaying
  • Disabled ambient sound while a MIDI issue is being resolved

So with both Diablo 2 and Warcraft 3 getting compatibility updates, could this mean that Starcraft is next? And what other games could Blizzard be updating in the future?
