In the next couple of days, on December 31st, Diablo will hit it’s 20 year mark after it’s original release date back in 1996. That is an amazing milestone, with Diablo ΙΙ still maintaining quite a fanbase since it’s release years ago. That being said, Blizzard is ready to celebrate the world of Sanctuary and all the “brave heroes who inhabit it!”
Soon enough, special in-game events and goodies will arrive in celebration of the 20 years of Diablo. These games will include:
- Diablo ΙΙΙ
- Heroes of the Storm
- Starcraft ΙΙ
- World of Warcraft
These events and items will only be available for a limited time, so be sure to check them out. Especially if you own several of these titles, as they should be very interesting. Blizzard has given a short description, which has added a bit of mystery to what you will be receiving in some of these titles:
Recapture the feeling of your first play through of the original Diablo with The Darkening of Tristram tribute event. Venture through a reimagined version of the original cathedral in Diablo III and keep an eye out for some familiar items.
