DIABLO 3 - The Anniversary Patch Celebrates 20 Years of DIABLO


The original "Diablo" is now 20 years old as of December 31st, 2016. For this reason, Blizzard decided to sort of remake the classic game within "Diablo 3" via patch 2.4.3. The launch date for the patch has not been officially announced, but it's "coming soon".

The patch will recreate the 16-floor dungeon from the 1996 game for the event called The Darkening of Tristram. The recreation of the legendary setting will include a pixellated visual filter, restrictive camera and limited animations for that old-school feel.

Other changes featured in the patch include revisions to the Greater Rifts, bug fixes, quality of life changes like taking down leaping enemies in mid-air, and the players' cache of dyes will now be held by Myriam, the Mystic.

For a detailed look into the changes of patch 2.4.3, visit the Battle.net blog.

Watch the trailer after the jump.
