plans to drop support for DirectX 9 and 32-bit clients in Heroes
of the Storm
this summer. They say that most of those playing their MOBA are
using the 64-bit client under DirectX 11 or higher, but apologize to those
affected by this. They recommend everyone upgrade, and also note there may also
be potential problems with DirectX 10 (or as we prefer, DirectX X). Here's word:
In the coming months, we’re planning to end support for DirectX9 and the
32-bit version of the Heroes of the Storm client. DirectX has had several major
releases since DX9, and the vast majority of players in the Heroes community are
now running the 64-bit version of the game, along with DirectX11 or higher.
Once support ends, Heroes of the Storm will no longer run for players who are
attempting to use the 32-bit game client or DirectX9. Please also note that
while the 64-bit Heroes client might still be playable on some machines using
DirectX10, this may not be the case for all configurations, which is why we
recommend that all our players upgrade to at least DirectX11.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you‘re not already using
the 64-bit Heroes of the Storm client and DX11 or higher, we encourage you to
consider making the switch prior to July of this year, which is when we aim to
go live with the planned changes.
