Diablo III: Reaper of Souls announced
Blizzard formally unveiled the next Diablo III expansion, Reaper of Souls. I guess this puts the nail in the coffin on The Dark Below being anything other than a World of Warcraft expansion. The announcement was made at Gamescon in Germany. Press release is here.
The expansion adds in a lot of content that honestly should have been in the original game, such as longevity-adding features like a "loot run" mode and something called Nephalem Trials, which I anticipate will be ways the system can make procedurally generated content that exists apart from the main storylines and allows for fun dungeon runs without repeating the story ad nauseum. Also, a new class in the form of the Crusader, which I predict will be very paladin-like.
I look forward to playing this in 3-4 years! Unless Bobby Kotick starts cracking the whip...
