There's a whole lot of content to dive into in The Darkening of Tristram event for 2021. It appears the content will be mostly the same as last year since Blizzard Entertainment didn't mention anything really new in their official announcement

First up, once you've hunted down the cultists and entered the portal, you will be transported to the original Tristram, combined with a grainy, pixelated filter to recreate the visuals of the 1997 classic.
