Diablo’s 20th Year Celebrations

On December 31st, 1996; a new RPG rose from the depths of hell. Diablo was its name, and it changed the RPG genre forever. After the second game of the franchise, all ARPG (Action RPG) games were doomed to be called Diablo-like, Diablo-ish or Diably (ok I made that last one up).

Anyway, for the 20th year celebrations; Blizzard prepared us some in-game events, items and memoirs thoughout all of its games. These events will be activated soon, but for a limited time; so hurry up before losing the chance. Here is the list of games & events:

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?

Hearthstone:

In this Tavern Brawl, a hooded stranger awaits, holding a grim deck in his hands. Will you unravel the secrets surrounding this dark wanderer?

Overwatch:

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.

Well, apart from Diablo III and WoW, these “events” are limited to profile portraits of the Lord of Terror himself. Better than nothing, eh? Then let’s all wish a happy birthday to the mighty Lord of Terror Diablo! And don’t forget to say “hi” to his brothers, Mephisto and Baal; they feel hurt if they are forgotten.
