It seems as though A lot of people are looking forward to the end of 2016. Blizzard Entertainment will start your 2017 right next month with a Diablo anniversary event that will span over all of their current games. Unfortunately, there are no screenshots of the content available yet, so we will all have to wait until closer to January to see what these events will truly be like.
Here is the information Blizzard Entertainment has provided so far.
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!
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.
The first Diablo game was released on December 31, 1996, so more information should become available as we inch closer to that date. Blizzard has stated that any in-game event items will only be available for a limited time. Blizzard has stated that they wish to hold the Diablo anniversary every January in Diablo III, but it is highly unlikely that these Diablo-themed items will be available in the other games again in the following years after the big 20th birthday bash has come and gone. Therefore, Diablo fans should keep an eye out here on Second Union and the official Blizzard Entertainment website to make sure that they can get all of the goodies before they are possibly gone forever.
