Blizzard just announced a new patch for its classic RTS game, Warcraft III. The first Warcraft III update after nearly five years will fix potential compatibility issues with newer operating systems.

Blizzard announced the new update by posting a video featuring Robert Bridenbecker, the head of its Classic Games division, who said that the patch will be available to all Warcraft III players around the world at the same time. The update will change the game version to 1.27, but developers still haven;t reveal any details about other potentail features of the patch.

In the video posted by Blizzard, Robert Bridenbecker also said the company is just getting started with updates, as we’ll see more patches in the coming months.

As the latest update will fix Warcraft III’s compatibility issues with newer operating systems, all users who’ve had problems playing the game on Windows 10 should now be able to smoothly run the game.

Warcraft III still played by millions

Blizzard is still inclined to deliver updates to its older games being that its large portfolio of classics are still played by many players worldwide. Warcraft III isn’t the only game receiving an update either, as Diablo II also received a compatibility update a few days ago. Blizzard is on a roll with delivering fresh updates for its older games, so we wouldn’t be surprised if other games like Starcraft also receive a patch.

Warcraft III was released in 2002, and it became one of the most popular games ever. The game considerably helped Blizzard to become one of the biggest game publishers in the world. Players are still playing it 14 years later, so it isn’t a surprise that Blizzard wants to keep up with the latest software requirements, making the game playable on new platforms like Windows 10.
