The Diablo franchise anniversary goes full retro

Blizzard's Diablo anniversary event is coming sometime in January and will contain a full redo of the first Diablo game using Diablo III assets.

Players will be able to dive deep into 16 levels of Tristram's underbelly for a limited time during the anniversary celebration. The developers have put a lot of effort into creating an old school vibe, with a shifted camera angle, throw-back restraints on player rotation and movement, new animations, a pixelated screen filter, redesigned retro UI and a generally broodier and darker tone.

There is no clear date set for when the update will go live, other than coming soon - but it should arrive before the end of January, or it wouldn't really be much of a birthday party.
