Blizzard Mulls $30 Price & Collector’s Edition for Diablo 3 Expansion
The Reaper of Souls is fast approaching, and Blizzard wants your feedback on pricing and details.
According to a report by Polygon, Blizzard has sent a survey to select registered Diablo 3 users on Battle.net. The survey asks about pricing for Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls, and also asks participants about a Collector’s Edition.
From the survey:
“Our goal at Blizzard Entertainment is to make the most epic gaming experiences possible, so we want to get your feedback as a registered user of Diablo III,” according to the email sent out to gamers. “We invite you to participate in an online survey where your responses will help us determine which areas to focus our attention in the coming months.”
“Consider two versions of the expansion: a Standard Edition for $29.99 and a Collector’s Edition for $49.99. The Standard Edition includes the Reaper of Souls expansion; the Collector’s Edition includes the expansion, exclusive in-game content, and other bonus items.”
$30 for what should be a hearty expansion isn’t a tough price to swallow. We know Reaper of Souls will bring a new class (Crusader) to Diablo 3, along with a fifth act, wholly new environments, and a higher level cap.
The PC version of Diablo 3 sold 3.4 million copies on its first day of release, and 6.5 million copies during its first week. 4.7 million players accessed the game on day one (including 1.2 million players who netted the game via their World of Warcraft annual pass). Diablo 3 launched on consoles last month to critical acclaim.
