Diablo 2 is an action role playing game for computers. It was released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2000, and received additional content through the expansion pack, Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction, in 2001. Like many computer and console video games, Diablo 2 was initially released with some bugs and minor glitches. These problems are resolved through the releases of patches, which can be downloaded from a variety of locations across the Internet. If a patch is downloaded that you did not mean to download, it is possible to return the game to the state it was prior to the patch.
