Diablo III Anniversary Event

Battle.net has details on "The Darkening of Tristram," an event that will kick off in Diablo III on January 1st to celebrate the anniversary of the action/RPG series. Here's what to expect:

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 loving homage to the earliest days of Diablo is for you.

Read on for more, including a closer look at the anniversary dungeon and its unique rewards.

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!

Your Journey Begins…

Exclusive rewards and challenging enemies await you, but they won’t last forever! The anniversary event begins January 1 at midnight PST and ends January 30 at the same time. Enter the dungeon, reap your rewards, and survive the evils within—or die in the process, never to be heard from again. . . .

Bought this game via the Steam Winter Sale. Enjoying it a lot. I like how WASD and jumping adds to the gameplay mechanic and overall design. No ARPG should be made without them, ever again.

so, it's a new dungeon w/ a bit of story ?

If they really wanted to impress , they would do a remake of DI & DII in the new engine and give it free as an update

That's a lot of money for an old game discounted everywhere.

But sure. And if Ford really wants to impress they'll give us all free GTs. If Dell really wants to impress they'll send us all Alienware computers for free. Why not?

Indeed, though I forgot to play it.. so maybe this time! Haha. Game's feeling pretty "blah" nowadays though, even after the last (awesome) set rebalance patch. Diablo 4 or bust!
