For the past couple of years, Blizzard has been running an annual event within Diablo 3 known as the “Darkening of Tristram”. Basically this will take players back to Tristram, the town that was in the original Diablo, and let them play through some of the levels, collect gear, and what not. Basically it helps to switch things up in the game which can admittedly get a bit repetitive.
For those who do enjoy the yearly event, you’ll be pleased to learn that the Darkening of Tristram has returned for 2019 and is actually live. The event kicked off on the 3rd of January, 2019, and is expected to run until the 31st of January, 2019, so you’ve got the entire month to take part in it. As expected there will be loot exclusive to the event so you’ll want to check that out before it is gone and you have to wait until next year.
Blizzard has been milking Diablo 3 for quite a while now, and while it is in the style of the developer to offer extended support for their games, many have been hankering for a Diablo 4. Many got their hopes up last year for BlizzCon where Diablo Immortal was unveiled instead of Diablo 4. It was received with massive backlash, although Blizzard attempted to placate fans by reassuring them that they still had a few more Diablo projects in the works.
Diablo Immortal has yet to be released so while the initial reception might have been frosty, for all we know it might end up being a really fun game to play.
