The Darkening of Tristram Anniversary Event to Return on January 1st

The Darkening of Tristram Anniversary Event to Return on January 1st -

The Diablo 3 site has been updated with a reminder to players that the Darkening of Tristram event will be making a comeback on January 1st. The event first debuted in January 2017 for the Diablo 1 20th Anniversary and has been deemed an annual event. This year, it begins on the first and ends on the last day of the month so it's worth check in to grab the exclusive event rewards including the Butcher pet, portrait frames, achievements and a chance at that ever elusive Godly Plate of the Whale!

Darkening of Tristram Event

  • Classic music tracks
  • 16 dungeon levels & boss level
  • All 4 bosses
  • Character animations and pixelation included!
  • Retro UI
  • Adjusted retro movement for monsters
  • Lots of easter eggs and nods to the original game
  • Portrait frames
  • Banner & sigil
  • Pets (including Baby Butcher!)
  • Legendary Gem & Transmog - the Red Soul Shard
  • Butcher's Cleaver & Wirt's Leg transmog items
  • Simplified art to more closely match the 90s version

Follow the clues and you’ll soon find yourself in a realm of glorious RetroVision™, where an all-too-familiar cathedral looms. Explore the depths and you’ll discover familiar enemies and iconic items, all brought to life in the Diablo III engine. Meanwhile, deep beneath the catacombs, the Dark Lord himself awaits any intrepid adventurer who dares to challenge him. . . .

For me, the best part was the music from the original game. It really brought back some awesome memories of scary times back when online gaming was still new and shiny. 

Check out the details on the Diablo 3 site.
