Which brings the month-long The Darkening of Tristram event to the game, represented by a mysterious portal that transports players to a re-imagining of the original Diablo from 1996 -- presented in Glorious RetroVision. We had a chance to make our way through all 15 levels of the retro dungeon last night and it's definitely worth your time. Doubly so (or, triply) if you're a fan of Diablo III. And thanks to the original music and sound effects from the '90s original, it's a fun trip down memory lane.

You can take a look at the retro look and feel of the update in the video below (at around the halfway point).

It's worth noting that this isn't a remake of the original Diablo, but instead a version of sorts of the dungeon layout and setup of that game filtered through the fast-paced action and skill system of Diablo III. That being said, the old school character movement, animation, and lighting is utterly charming and overall the multi-level dungeon is chock full of fun Easter Eggs and call backs to the original game.

Sadly getting owned by Path Of Exile who continually release new content without any fanfare despite having a fraction of Blizzard's resources.

Maybe they should have more fanfare then so people will know and want to play their game. Seems they have a fraction of the markettng skills Blizzard do too

Meh, outdoing a 20 year old franchise with existing fanbase and million dollar marketing budget by focusing on making their game good, Maybe i'm just sad to see d3 stagnating after playing 1000+ hrs.

I've never heard of Path of Exile and a quick google shows it to have tiny numbers in comparison to Diablo 3, so not sure they are really outdoing them. I appreciate if you like the game though.

Clocked the Tristram event tonight on Master, took probs 1-2 hours. Pretty fun but not much past that. It makes you appreciate the D3 graphics after playing the event, that's for sure.

I have never played Diablo before. You guys mentioned Path of Exile so I checked it out, it's alright. I was a warrior or something and I have been killing crabs and undead on the beach. Ill keep playing it and see how it goes.

Forget the Secret Cow Level. There should be a level filled with nothing but Hell Rodents that you kill. Because if there's one thing that Diablo is known for it's killing mice. click click click click

The depth in Path of Exile dwarfs diablo 3. Diablo 3 is basically the casual gamer's arpg, PoE is the real deal. All the scrubs get caught up in the blizz hype, keeps them away from path of exile though so i guess so its a good thing!

Cos thats what you want when you make a game, to keep people away. Sound business model right there.
