As Warcraft will celebrate its 30th anniversary late this year, it's not surprising to see Blizzard bring back the two games alongside another classic, namely Diablo. These titles are now available on for $9.99 (Diablo and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness) and $5.99 (Warcraft: Orcs & Humans).

After last year's fastest-selling game in the company's history, namely Diablo IV, Blizzard is now ready to celebrate 30 years since the release of the first Warcraft game. While the 30th anniversary of Warcraft: Orcs & Humans will take place in November, the game is now available via alongside 1997's Diablo and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkeness, released at the end of 1995.

For those who missed these games back in the day, the graphics might be disappointing. However, there's enough in terms of gameplay and storytelling to make most players want to come back for another solo or multiplayer experience. In just a few words, these are the highlights of Blizzard's three classics that are now returning via

  • Diablo: 16 randomly generated levels with plenty of randomly rolled loot, three character classes (Warrior, Rogue, Sorcerer), up to four collaborative multiplayer sessions
  • Warcraft: Orcs & Humans: Blizzard's first RTS with two separate campaigns with a total of two dozen missions, two-player versus mode, and more.
  • Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness: Including a map editor, it also features 28 missions across two campaigns.

Although the prices of these classics are not high, it would have been nice for Blizzard to offer a 3-in-1 bundle deal. For now, those interested can get Diablo and Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness for $9.99 each, while Warcraft: Orcs & Humans goes for $5.99. On the other hand, those looking to spice up their wardrobe could grab the Diablo III Special Edition t-shirt for men by JINX off Amazon for less than $20.
