Blizzard Celebrates Diablo’s Anniversary With Events and Loot

In celebration of Diablo‘s 20th anniversary on December 31st, Blizzard is offering all sorts of goodies and events for a few of their most popular games. These will only be available for a limited time, though Blizzard hasn’t mentioned exactly how long. The games involved in the tribute include Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, Overwatch, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft.blizzarddiablo29dec2016505

There will be more information and details forthcoming, but for now here’s Blizzard’s mini run down of what will be offered in each game:

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.

It’s a little disappointing that Overwatch and StarCraft only get new character skins, but Blizzard did mention that it wouldn’t be holding events for Overwatch anymore. Nonetheless, new adventures and a recreated cathedral certainly sounds like a lot of fun. Will you be participating in these events? Which one are most looking forward to?
