Blizzard Is Celebrating 20 Years Of Diablo!

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
  • Hearth­stone
  • Over­watch
  • 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:

Diablo III:

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.

Heroes of the Storm:

The bat­tle for the High Heav­ens con­tin­ues, and a new Dia­blo-themed por­trait is up for grabs! Can you emerge vic­to­ri­ous on this hec­tic new brawl map?


In this Tav­ern Brawl, a hood­ed stranger awaits, hold­ing a grim deck in his hands. Will you unrav­el the secrets sur­round­ing this dark wanderer?


Bring the bat­tle for Sanc­tu­ary into the fight for the future with in-game sprays rep­re­sent­ing your favorite Dia­blo III classes—along with a new play­er icon mod­eled after the Lord of Terror!

StarCraft II:

Put the Lord of Ter­ror to work for you with a Dia­blo-themed work­er portrait.

World of Warcraft:

Strange things are afoot in the world of Aze­roth as denizens of Sanc­tu­ary cross over into an unfa­mil­iar world.
