Introducing Ax Wizard! Overall this content is just enough to get you back into the world of Diablo, and with old school flair to boot. Luckily, this isn’t the only Blizzard Game getting in on the action! All of Blizzard’s titles are getting minor flairs and hurrahs from the world of Sanctuary.

Heroes of the Storm: The battle for the High Heavens continues, and a new Diablo-themed portrait is up for grabs! Can you emerge victorious on this hectic new brawl map?

Hearthstone: In this Tavern Brawl, a hooded stranger awaits, holding a grim deck in his hands. Will you unravel the secrets surrounding this dark wanderer?

Overwatch: Bring the battle for Sanctuary into the fight for the future with in-game sprays representing your favorite Diablo III classes—along with a new player icon modeled after the Lord of Terror!

StarCraft II: Put the Lord of Terror to work for you with a Diablo-themed worker portrait.

World of Warcraft: Strange things are afoot in the world of Azeroth as denizens of Sanctuary cross over into an unfamiliar world.

Of course, Diablo III is getting the meat of the content, instead of just unlocks, but what they have put out for Diablo III is delightfully throwback. You can’t even zoom in to see you character better, you are stuck with the perspective the game gives you. All in all, the 16th level labyrinth and the old school UI and filter is enough to keep me playing Diablo through the event. I hope this content set the bar for the first new class DLC content announced at BlizzCon, the Necromancer.
