Diablo 3’s retro Diablo anniversary event has returned in 2019

Right on time with Imperius’ addition to Heroes of the Storm

While people might not have gotten a five second title card for Diablo IV at BlizzCon, which is assuredly in development, Diablo is getting a few other celebrations this month.

In addition to Imperius’ appearance in Heroes of the Storm, who is now playable in the PTR realm, that Diablo anniversary event that went live back in 2016 is back again. As promised Blizzard is bringing the festivities to Diablo III during the month of January annually, and you can access the “Darkening of Tristram,” classic Diablo content and “RetroVision” aesthetics and all, until January 31 at 4PM PT.

In case you haven’t done it before, here is a handy guide on how to access it! If you’ve already finished it and hit up all the achievements you probably don’t need to do it again as it’s the same event. The Wirt’s Leg bug from last year is still present, but as of this afternoon Blizzard is investigating it.
