Today, GOG.COM has re-released Synergistic Software's Diablo: Hellfire expansion to Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo. It comes free for current owners of the title, and the Diablo and Diablo: Hellfire bundle will remain 10% off until the end of the sale, which is on June 17 at 10 PM UTC.
Released in 1997, Hellfire was not endorsed by Blizzard and is not an official Blizzard Entertainment product. Despite this, due to repeated player requests, Blizzard Entertainment has allowed GOG to include it as free add-on with Diablo purchases on GOG.COM, along with the high-resolution support and compatibility for modern systems that Diablo's GOG release shipped with.
Hellfire has a non-canonical campaign, where players have to defeat a powerful demon named Na-Krul who is threatening the town of Tristram. The expansion adds the Monk class, new missions, locations, weapons, items, dungeons, and enemies. To play it, just use the launcher to access it.
Also included in the GOG Summer Sale Festival are all Bethesda games, which are 50% off. These include Fallout 1 and 2, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game of the Year Edition Deluxe, and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind GOTY Edition.
Other games added to the sale include Torment: Tides of Numenera and the Wasteland series for about 50% off, respectively, Quern - Undying Thoughts for 60% off, Monstrum for 80% off, Dreamfall Chapters: The Final Cut for 70% off, and Magicmaker for 75% off.

Quick Take:I am astonished that Blizzard allowed Hellfire to see the light of day again. Made due to outside interference, Blizzard basically did their best to ruin Hellfire during development, and then did their utmost to make themselves and everyone else forget about it after it's release. That they are now willingly releasing it is quite honestly the most surprising thing that Blizzard has done since announcing World of Warcraft: Classic.
