For the first time ever, the Nintendo Switch version of Diablo III: Eternal Collection will play host to the Darkening of Tristram anniversary event. This limited-time event - which runs until 31st January - allows veterans and newcomers alike the chance to explore the franchise's past history by playing through the original Diablo levels and slaying multiple classic bosses.

The anniversary event will give you the chance to unlock unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets and more. Some rewards will be harder than others to find and may require you to unlock multiple achievements before they can be obtained. Here are some of the rewards on offer:

Below is Blizzard's official rundown of the event:

Your journey begins on the trail of a group of mysterious cultists causing trouble in Sanctuary. As you hunt them down in Adventure Mode, you’ll uncover clues leading to a portal into Tristram’s past, and the terrifying darkness that took hold of the town so many years ago. . . .

Follow the clues and you’ll soon find yourself in a realm of glorious RetroVision™, where an all-too-familiar cathedral looms. Explore the depths and you’ll discover familiar enemies and iconic items, all brought to life in the Diablo III engine. Meanwhile, deep beneath the catacombs, the Dark Lord himself awaits any intrepid adventurer who dares to challenge him. . . .

Will you be returning to Hell to participate in this event? Tell us in the comments.
