Last year the developers of Diablo celebrated it's big anniversary by adding a mode to the game where you could play it with pixelated graphics and take on a dungeon that felt eerily like the original game. Seems like Blizzard is bringing the even back starting now and ending on January 31st.

"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. . . .

What is a Diablo game without shiny new loot to call your own? Completing activities in the anniversary event yields unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets, and more.

While some rewards are easy to find, others may have you scouring every nook or unlocking every achievement before you can get your hands on them. Can you earn them all? There’s only one way to find out!

I missed this last year so I think I'm going to take a quick peek and see how it the event plays!

Just so you can avoid the confusion I did, the portal doesn't appear until today (January 3) at 4PM PST, 7PM EST. You can get the pages from the cultists now, but the full event isn't quite in swing.

Yeah, I realized that last night after heading to the Portal and derping around a bit until I realized something was off. It seems the pages are just for a collectable and you can open the portal without them?

Yep, I think you get a cosmetic of some kind for collecting all the pages, but it seems entirely separate from the portal.
