Last year saw the launch of the Darkening of Tristram event which was part of Diablo’s 20th Anniversary celebrations. In case you were wondering, it’s back this year.
If you missed it last year, it’s a recreation of the original Diablo dungeon crawl in Diablo 3. The visuals are made to look like the pixelated Diablo 1 graphics and the movement has been reduced to eight directions. While it’s not that a faithful recreation of the Diablo experience, and the end battle is nowhere near as exciting as the original, it’s a fun romp.
