Blizzard to celebrate Diablo's 20th anniversary across multiple games

Blizzard is celebrating the 20th anniversary for Diablo by opening up a number of different events centered around the franchise.

In Heroes of the Storm, there will be a new Diablo-themed portrait to be won in a new brawl map.

Diablo's 20th anniversary is celebrated with in-game events and goodies in Blizzard's other games, but the celebration is just the beginning as more is in store. Diablo III will be receiving an in-game event named "The Darkening of Tristram", allowing players to run through a re-imagined version of the cathedral present in the original Diablo. Venture through a reimagined version of the original cathedral in Diablo III and keep an eye out for some familiar items. Gamers dabbling in the free-to-play MOBA will be able to experience a new brawl map along with a new portrait to acquire. You can either roll a new character or use a now existing one, however during the reveal at BlizzCon 2016 the developers urged that the best way was to start fresh. Hearthstone players can take part in the Tavern Brawl where they will have to play a new hooded stranger with a grim deck. "Will you unravel the secrets surrounding this dark wanderer?" Diablo will be added as a new player icon, and in addition, new sprays will be added that represent the classes of Diablo III.

Put the Lord of Terror to work for you with a Diablo-themed worker portrait. The event was announced earlier this year at BlizzCon, and it's a recreation of the original game within Diablo III.

In World of Warcraft, denizens of Sanctuary are crossing over to find themselves in an unfamiliar world. Stay tuned as we'll be sure to let you know when these events are slated to begin once Blizzard announces that information. Set in the fictional world of Sanctuary twenty years after the events of Diablo II, the player is tasked with stopping the forces of hell and main antagonist, Diablo, The Lord of Terror. "Diablo 3" is still strong and Blizzard doesn't have the plan to release another game. Fans of the original game will instantly recall this location for playing a major role in the game and in the defeat of Diablo for the first time.
