Blizzard celebrates 20 years of Diablo

Posted on December 29, 2016

December 31st will be 20 years since the release of Blizzards original dungeon dwelling classic Diablo. And to celebrate Diablo the Lord of Terror’s turning 20 Blizzard are throwing a party of sorts as only they can. This grand event will be celebrated across multiple games and platforms, with plenty of Diablo themed free loot for all.

Below is a small taste of some of the goodies Blizzard has planned for us…

Diablo III:

Recapture the feeling of your first play through of the original Diablo with The Darkening of Tristram tribute event. Venture through a reimagined version of the original cathedral in Diablo III and keep an eye out for some familiar items.

Heroes of the Storm:

The battle for the High Heavens continues, and a new Diablo-themed portrait is up for grabs! Can you emerge victorious on this hectic new brawl map?


In this Tavern Brawl, a hooded stranger awaits, holding a grim deck in his hands. Will you unravel the secrets surrounding this dark wanderer?


Bring the battle for Sanctuary into the fight for the future with in-game sprays representing your favorite Diablo III classes—along with a new player icon modeled after the Lord of Terror!

StarCraft II:

Put the Lord of Terror to work for you with a Diablo-themed worker portrait.

World of Warcraft:

Strange things are afoot in the world of Azeroth as denizens of Sanctuary cross over into an unfamiliar world.

What a great way to celebrate the last 20 years of a game,  here’s to another 20 great years Lord of Terror!
