Today, January 4th 2021, the nostalgic jubilee event "Darkness of Tristram" starts in Diablo 3. In the annual homage to the early days of the Diablo series, well-known challenges and special rewards await you. On the official website the developers of Blizzard revealed what you can expect on the nostalgia trip in the next few days.
The darkness in Tristram has returned
The anniversary of Diablo is imminent and with it the event The Darkness in Tristram! Whether you're a veteran of the series and love to indulge in nostalgia, or newbies who would like to learn more about the series' past, everyone will get their money's worth with this annual loving homage to the early days of Diablo.
Stop the cultists
Your journey begins on the trail of a group of mysterious cultists who are causing trouble in Sanctuary. As you track them down in Adventure Mode, you will find clues that lead to a portal into Tristram's past and the appalling darkness that reached out to the village so many years ago …
Explore the cathedral
If you follow the instructions, you will soon find yourself in a realm of splendid RetroVision ™ with an all-too-famous cathedral waiting for you. Explore the depths and encounter well-known opponents and cult objects, all brought to life in the Diablo III engine. Meanwhile, deep beneath the catacombs, the Lord of Terror awaits all the daring adventurers who dare to challenge him.
Discover valuable loot
What would Diablo be without shiny new loot to earn? Complete activities in this Anniversary Event to earn unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, companions, and more.
While some rewards are pretty easy to find, others require you to scour every nook and cranny or unlock all of the achievements before you can get your hands on them. Will you be able to earn them all? There is only one way to find out!
Your journey begins …
Exclusive rewards and challenging opponents await you, but only for a short time! The cultists will appear on January 1st at 1:00 AM CET and the portal will open on January 4th at the same time. Both parts of the event will end on February 1st at 1:00 a.m.CET.
Enter the dungeon, collect your rewards and survive the horrors that live there – or die trying and be lost forever …
