Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Video Showcases Crusader Class
Blizzard has released a new video detailing Diablo III: Reaper of Souls’ Crusader class.
The video, which clocks in at about 3 minutes and 40 seconds in length, starts off by describing the history of the Crusaders and their quest to save their religion from the evil lord Mephisto. This section lasts about a minute and 30 seconds, after which the video transitions into a more straightforward description of the class itself.
It describes the Crusader as a fighter that “faces evil head on” and “[annihilates] its foes with the power of the light.” According to the video, the Crusader powers it abilities with Wrath. Wrath accumulates gradually during combat and can be used to “unleash his mightiest abilities.” These would include “Heaven’s Fury,” “Shield Bash” and “Holy Judgment.” The Crusader will also be able to perform a charge attack, taunt enemies away from allies and enhance other player characters to improve their performance in battle.
Players will get their first taste of the Crusader when the Reaper of Souls expansion releases for PCs and Macs on March 25th. It will cost $39.99 for the standard edition. A Digital Deluxe Edition is also being sold for $59.99. A console version is, apparently, also in the works.
