At a live stage event in Cologne, Germany during the Gamescom 2013 expo, Blizzard Entertainment has revealed the expected expansion for Diablo 3, Reaper of Souls. A cinematic trailer was screened to attendees, which will hopefully appear online soon, and we'll have more specifics for you on the expansion's contents shortly.
The obligatory new player class is the crusader, a holy-knight type character similar to Diablo 2's paladin, and described as a mid-range melee fighter with a sword and shield focus.
With Diablo defeated, the new big bad is a fallen archangel named Malthael, who takes on the role of the titular Reaper of Souls after returning from the void with a goal of destroying all demons, with no concern for human collateral damage.
The setting is centred around Westmarch, and area designed with a heavy Western European gothic influence, and brimming with new nasties to smite.\
The level cap has been raised to 70, and the loot system is getting another major tweak, referred to as "Loot 2.0" which will reportedly see less frequent magic items dropping, but of a higher quality.
Check out the cinematic trailer and gameplay teaser below.
