Diablo II Turns Five
10:19 AM | Franklin Pride | Comment on this story

On June 30th, Diablo II reached its fifth anniversary. Blizzard released a short post thanking gamers for this landmark, but did not announce any new content for the Diablo series.

Through the tortured body of a possessed hero, Diablo, Lord of Terror, made his way east from Tristram across the vast deserts surrounding the ancient city of Lut Gholein and ultimately into the bowels of his domain in Hell, where his horrific army was amassing. It was five years ago today that he reunited with his brothers, Mephisto and Baal, in a nefarious new plot to enslave the world of mortals. Despite the awe-inspiring power of the Prime Evils, it seems the sheer will of humanity had been underestimated. For across the world, legions of Necromancers, Amazons, Paladins, Sorceresses, and Barbarians rose to the challenge and again confronted the forces of evil head-on. Blizzard, and indeed the whole of mankind, thank you for your five years of dedication to this noblest of causes.
New content could be coming as a prefix to this short release, so stay posted for further updates if that is the case.
