The MOP Up: Diablo III’s anniversary dungeon returns


Anyone who missed out on Diablo III’s anniversary dungeon can get back in on the fun and rewards thanks to its reprise all month long. As you may recall, the Darkening of Tristram is the recreation of Diablo I’s iconic dungeon inside of the third game.

“Exclusive rewards and challenging enemies await you, but they won’t last forever,” Blizzard said. “The cultists have begun appearing since December 31 at 4 p.m. PST, and the portal opens January 3 at the same hour. Both parts of the event end January 31 at 4 p.m. PST.”

This is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have, drop us a tip)!
