Back in 2016 during BlizzCon 2016, we’re sure many Diablo fans were disappointed when Blizzard revealed that instead of announcing the rumored Diablo 4, the developer announced a remake of the original Diablo in the form of an in-game event called the Darkening of Tristram, which Blizzard also confirmed would be an annual event.

2017’s Darkening of Tristram event has long ended, but the good news is that if you missed out on this year’s event, not to worry as Blizzard has since reminded gamers that 2018’s event is around the corner. The 2018 Darkening of Tristram event will be kicking off on the 1st of January, 2018 at midnight PST and will end on the 30th of January, 2018 at the same time.

The event will bring about new adventures that gamers can look forward to, as well as new 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!” We expect that Blizzard will continue running this event for the foreseeable future, but in the meantime analysts have suggested that Diablo 4 could possibly arrive in 2019.
