Diablo III: The Darkening of Tristram

Grab your torches, as Blizzard announces the return of The Darkening of Tristram event in Diablo III to celebrate the anniversary of the action/RPG series. This offers the chance to stop the cultists and collect some phat lewt, but tempus fugit, and this all concludes when January comes to an end. Here are all the details:
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.

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 cultists have begun appearing since December 31 at 4 p.m. PST, and the portal opens January 3 at the same hour. Both parts of the event end January 31 at 4 p.m. PST.

Enter the dungeon, reap your rewards, and survive the evils within—or die in the process, never to be heard from again. . . .

There's nothing here to stop, it's the same anniversary event as the past however many years. They probably have one script to double-click that automatically schedules it to go live and makes the news post.

Exactly. I was still playing D3 back when the first retro thing happened. We got all amped up that Diablo 1 was going to basically be in the game and then it turned out to only be the first 3 levels. And the loot drop was shit too. Total letdown.

But hey, Blizzard will coast on Overwatch for another 10 years so we're cool right?
