No Mac Beta for Diablo II Expansion Set Test
8:58 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Blue's News has noted that Blizzard recently updated its FAQ for the upcoming
beta testing of Lord of Destruction, the expansion set for the popular isometric RPG
Diablo II.


When the FAQ first came out, it did not address whether or not Mac owners would be able to get
in on the testing as well, leaving many Mac owners guessing (and probably e-mailing Blizzard). However, in their
recent update, they provide a definite answer to the question:

[Q]: Will there be a Mac version of the Beta available?

[A]: No. The focus of our Beta is on servers rather than specific client systems.
While this is no doubt a disappointment to many a Mac Diablo II fan, it's worth noting that Blizzard
has been very good to Mac owners in recent times, releasing their major titles
for Macs, shooting for near-simultaneous releases with PC versions, and even allowing IMG some time in their studios for a preview
of the upcoming Warcraft III.


Lord of Destruction is due for the Mac within the 1st half of 2001, with an expected price of $30.
