Fans who recently got one of the Diablo BattleChest off the Amazone One-Day Deal, or who don’t know how to set up multiplayer may benefit from this info provided by a Blizzard Rep. Nothing like a good run through Diablo 1 to experience the bits of lore and content there to expand your knowledge in expectation of Diablo III’s storyline.
Datth: Diablo 1 will have trouble if you connect to Battle.net using a shared connection. It’s best to install the IPX protocol (since these are XP machines) and use that to connect to one another. It’ll also work on the Hellfire expansion pack from Sierra. You may find more information it here.
