Time to dust off your Diablo 3 character because Blizzard just unveiled the Reaper of Souls expansion where a new chapter follows the Lord of Terror’s defeat.
Just like Diablo 2, the Diablo 3 expansion brings another act to the game. This new act revolves around Mathael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom who vanished after the events depicted at the end of Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction. In this latest expansion, he returns as the Angel of Death and seizes the Black Soulstone, which contains the essence of the Prime Evil. It’s now up to you to track and defeat him.
Aside from the new act, Reaper of Souls brings a new character to the table which is the Crusader.
Driven by a centuries-long quest to cleanse the corruption blighting their beloved Zakarum faith, Crusaders are warriors of righteousness who have been hardened through relentless, brutal combat with the foul evils plaguing eastern Sanctuary. In addition to wearing immensely heavy armor and wielding a wide range of cruel and punishing weapons, this new playable class in Reaper of Souls uses battle magic to strengthen allies and weaken foes. A natural walking tank, the Crusader adds power and versatility to any party of adventurers.
Now for the other characters, there are new spells and abilities as well as additional 10 character levels bringing the max level to 70 aside from Paragon levels. This will allow for further character improvement beyond stats.
The game will also feature new and improved multilevel Legendary items, new Blacksmith and Jeweler item-crafting options, and more. There are also two new game modes that will be added – Loot Runs and Nephalem Trials. No word on PvP improvement has been announced.
Blizzard did not disclose when Diablo 3: Repear of Souls will come out in the market but if you want to keep up with the latest news and developments, you can visit http://www.diablo3.com/reaperofsouls.
