The first Act of Diablo III brings us back to Tristram, where an unknown object fell from the skies and struck the Tristram Cathedral. The Official Web Site states that this 'harbinger of doom' will awake ancient evils and call for heroes of Sanctuary to defend their world. Not many areas of the Act were revealed, but those that were revealed are showing what the entirety of the Act could look like.
The player starts in Overlook Road, where they are tasked to follow the road to the New Tristram. The first NPC they talk to is Captain Rumford, who then tells you what happened. The player then proceeds to follow Old Tristram Road to Old Tristram, formerly Tristram, and eventually to the Tristram Cathedral to investigate what happened there and rescue Deckard Cain.
Once inside the Cathedral, the player witnesses the destruction that the unknown object left behind. The holes that it left are shining with blue or turquoise color. On the last level, the player encounters an old enemy from the past, the Skeleton King.
