Darkening Of Tristram
We're celebrating a new anniversary of the release of the debut of the very first Diablo game, originally released on December 31, 1996.
If you missed Diablo's 20th anniversary event last year, you have another chance. Diablo turned 21 on December 31, 2017, and while video games can't drink, they can recreate a nightmare world of horror that pulls you back to the roots of the franchise.
Last year, Diablo 3 celebrated the 20th anniversary of the franchise with The Darkening of Tristram which ported Diablo's original 16 levels into Diablo 3.
Diablo 3's Darkening of Tristram event, which sends you back to the olden days of Diablo 1, is a real blast from the past.
Let's face it -- as cool as Diablo was, Diablo 2 was the most popular and fan loved installment in the series.
It's the 20th Anniversary of Diablo, and Diablo 3 has some plans in store for us all with patch 2.4.3, the Anniversary Patch.
Update: Sorry to anyone who's just seeing this now, but Season 8 has ended.
Seeing the Darkening of Tristram happening in Diablo 3 makes me wonder if anything like that could ever be done in World of Warcraft.
Diablo's 20th anniversary event, the Darkening of Tristram, is live on the PTR.
