Blizzard has taken an interesting decision to release a remade version of Diablo within Diablo III. The Diablo remake will be added to Diablo III as a part of the “20th anniversary” patch.

The new patch, known as The Darkening of Tristam will have four main bosses from the first Diablo and will include a 16-level dungeon.

Here’s what Blizzard mentioned about the patch in a press release:

Celebrate 20 years of Diablo by traveling back into the depths of the Cathedral where it all began in this upcoming Diablo III: Reaper of Souls content update. Get ready to explore a monster-filled dungeon 16 levels deep, and come face to face with the four main bosses from the original game—all with retro touches like special graphics filters and eight-direction character movement.
