Diablo 3 Expansion ‘Reaper Of Souls’ Finally Announced
After a recent tease about something that looked related to Diablo 3, Blizzard have now announced a new expansion for the game, Reaper of Souls. The announcement was made during Gamescom and will be the first expansion since the games launch.
Players will face off against Malthael, the Angel of Wisdom, who has fallen from grace. Malthael has seized control of the Black Soulstone containing the soul of Diablo himself. Players will venture through a new city environment known as Westmarch. The expansion will feature new areas, monsters, and higher level cap as well as an improved loot drop system.
Reaper Of Souls will also add a new class to the Diablo roster with the introduction of the Crusader, a mid-range melee class that is similar to the Paladin class from Diablo 2. The Crusader can use attacks such as Shield Bash and Falling Sword to fight against fallen angels and Malthael’s minions.
I’m not sure if I’ll pick this up personally, long since stopped playing Diablo 3 but maybe I’ll return to it someday. What about you guys? Excited? Let us know in the comments!
