Diablo III Anniversary Event Returns, Taking Players Back to the Original Game

Published

 on

Diablo III

Since 2017, Blizzard has run an annual limited-time event in Diablo III that celebrates the history of the franchise through a homage to the first game.

The event is called ‘The Darkening of Tristram’ and sets players the task of exploring the ancient Cathedral and the many labyrinthine passages below it, which are filled with evil cultists, demons, and undead monsters.

Players can access the event in Adventure Mode, which will give them the opportunity to explore the events that unfolded in the very first Diablo game. The event utilises what Blizzard calls “RetroVision,” a visual style that replicates old-school PC graphics.

Of course, special rewards are available for those fans who take up the challenge, with unique transmogrification effects, achievements, and mini pets available for completing certain activities during the event.

2019 will mark the first time that the special event is available for Nintendo Switch players, since Diablo III was only ported to the console towards the end of 2018.

The Darkening of Tristram Anniversary event is set to run until January 31, 2019.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
