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.
