To ring in the new year with Diablo 3, Blizzard announced today that The Darkening of Tristram and the Diablo anniversary event are now live.
With the event returning today until January 31st, players will be able to get exclusive rewards and challenge tough enemies. Expect precious loots as to delve once again in Tristram or the Cathedral with this rerun of the event.
An overview of the event:
The Darkening of Tristram Event
- Stop the Cultists
Your journey begins on the trail of a group of mysterious cultists causing trouble in Sanctuary. As you hunt them down in Adventure Mode, you’ll uncover clues leading to a portal into Tristram’s past, and the terrifying darkness that took hold of the town so many years ago. . . .
- Explore the Cathedral
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. . . .
- Discover Precious Loot
What is a Diablo game without shiny new loot to call your own? Completing activities in the anniversary event yields unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets, and more. While some rewards are easy to find, others may have you scouring every nook or unlocking every achievement before you can get your hands on them. Can you earn them all? There’s only one way to find out!
Since the event only returns very rarely, now is really the time to participate as it’s most likely that the event will return very later year. If you are still playing Diablo 3 regardless of what platform, definitely consider playing it again just for this event.
Diablo 3 is available now for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and the Nintendo Switch.
