This could turn out to be very, very awesome.
On Thursday, Blizzard announced that its best-selling Diablo III title currently runs on the new MacBook Pro at the native resolution of its Retina display and that the developer is working on further improvements to the title specific to Apple’s latest notebook.
Per AppleInsider, Blizzard said it was “pleased” that Apple decided to include Diablo III I its keynote presentation at the Worldwide Developers Conference last week.
“While we can confirm that the game runs natively on and takes full advantage of the full screen resolution for the new MacBook Pro, we need to do some work to optimize it for windowed mode on the new system,” the developer said. “We will provide our Mac players with an update when we have further details to share.”
In recent benchmarks, Diablo III consistently ran around 30 frames per second on the Retina Display MacBook Pro when playing at the highest possible resolution of 2,880 by 1,800 pixels with all settings on high and anti-aliasing disabled.
Apple’s native applications in OS X already take advantage of the Retina display of the new MacBook Pro, and separate updates are also available for iMovie, iPhoto, Final Cut Pro and Aperture.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
