Blizzard has outlined its plans for Diablo’s 20th anniversary celebrations in Overwatch, Hearthstone, World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, and StarCraft II.
“Starting soon, you can experience special in-game events and goodies in Diablo III, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, Overwatch, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft to celebrate a few of the things we love about Diablo,” the developer explains. “These events and items will only be available for a limited time, so be sure to check them all out before they’re gone.”
Overwatch players can look forward to new in-game sprays for each of Diablo’s classes and a new player icon, while Hearthstone players will get a new Tavern Brawl against “a hooded stranger.” Get all the details below:

Diablo III‘s Darkening of Tristram event is scheduled to begin later this month. The event introduces a new dungeon that is 16 levels deep containing the four main bosses from the first Diablo, the original music, and a new “Retrovision” graphics filter that makes the game look like the original and locks players to old-school eight-directional movement.
