Diablo 3's Annual Event Will Take Us Back to First Game

Diablo 3 players will soon be able to revisit locations from the iconic first part. All as part of the Darkening of Tristam event, which will be launched in early January.

Diablo 3 players can already get ready for a sentimental journey back to the days of the first game. As every year, in early January The Darkening of Tristam event will return .

Blizzard announced the return of the recurring event last night:

"Diablo’s anniversary is right around the corner, along with the Darkening of Tristram event! Whether you’re a series veteran craving nostalgia, or a newcomer hungry for your first taste of the franchise’s past, this annual loving homage to the earliest days of Diablo is for you."

As part of the event, the players will visit iconic locations from the first installment of the famous hack'n'slash series. It will be possible to visit the cathedral in the city of Tristram, as well as gloomy dungeons full of dangers, cultists, demons and monsters.

Back to the neighborhood

As part of the event, we will encounter enemies well known from the first game, traversing the familiar (or, for new players, unfamiliar) 16 levels from the first installment of the series on the engine of Diablo 3.

As part of the Darkening of Tristam there are all sorts of rewards to earn - achievements, portraits, pets, transmog effects and much, much more. Some of the trophies will be easy to discover, but others may require a bit more effort from the players.

Cultists heralding the event will appear in Diablo 3 on December 31 at 4 p.m. PST. The actual event will begin at the same time of January 3 and will last until the end of the month.
