While gamers play through Diablo 3 Season 25 and unlock the best abilities of the Lords of Hell, other events will be arriving alongside it.
Blizzard has confirmed that the Darkening of Tristram event will be back in Diablo 3 on January 3, complete with new rewards and challenges, beginning at the start of the month.
It should also be noted that while the Darkening event kicks off on January 3 in North America, gamers in the UK will get access at Midnight on January 4.
And before that happens, exclusive rewards and challenging enemies will arrive, including The cultists, on December 31 at 4 p.m. PST.
A message from Blizzard explains: “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.
“Enter the dungeon, reap your rewards, and survive the evils within—or die in the process, never to be heard from again.”
Here are some of the events and challenges gamers can expect when the Darkening begins later this month:
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.
