Upcoming Diablo 3 Expansion ‘Reaper of Souls’ to Take Story ‘Darker’
Blizzard has officially unveiled the first expansion pack for Diablo 3 at a Gamescom media event today.
Titled Reaper of Souls, the expansion pack is set to raise the level cap, add new environments, monsters, and an all new class—the Crusader.
According to Josh Mosquiera, Game Director, the expansion pack will feature a new act with a “darker” storyline, which reads as follows:
Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, returns as the Angel of Death in Diablo III’s first expansion set: Reaper of Souls. Having seized the Black Soulstone and slain most of the guards protecting it, it now falls to players to track down Malthael and stop him before he unleashes irreversible havoc on the world. Fortunately, a new hero is ready to join the cause and bring Malthael to justice—the Crusader, a fierce melee warrior whose command of the battlefield is matched only by his unwavering conviction and uncompromising dedication to the Light.
Reaper of Souls does not currently have a release date though you can check out the teaser site which simply has a quotes from the Book of Tyrael reading “Death, at last, shall spread its wings over all.”
