20 years of Diablo and fans are given a treat. It may not be Diablo IV but it is a treat nonetheless. The Darkening of Tristram" patch has been released to Diablo III. Fans have been waiting for something new and at the start of the year, Diablo didn't disappoint.

According to a report, the patch 2.4.3 will bring the players to the Cathedral's different levels - all 16 of them and defeat the four Bosses. The interface has been improved as well and characters are changed bringing back the features to the original Diablo.

Before downloading patch 2.4.3 make sure that it is already available in your area. Players from Asia and Europe will have to wait for the release before they can install and enjoy the patch. Blizzard has released "The Darkening of Tristram" as their way of commemorating the 20th anniversary of Diablo. Not to burst the bubble, though, for reasons only known to Blizzard, the "The Darkening of Tristram" is only available for the month of January.

For the time that The Darkening of Tristram is live, players can go to the cathedral and see it in its original form. There will be a lot of nostalgic items as well. Diablo III also have new Legendary and set weapons and armors in store. One of the new items in store is an addition to the Akkhan set - the 7th piece of the Crusader's Armor.

Diablo III may not be a full and total remake of Diablo but it is enough to keep fans happy. The patch is available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. As Diablo celebrates its 20th anniversary, there will be a special portal that will allow players to enjoy the dungeons. To fully enjoy the game for this month, Blizzard is recommending that players create a new character. It is not a requirement but just a recommendation.
