Blizzard has confirmed Reaper of Souls will be the first expansion for Diablo III at Gamescom 2013. Watch the cinematic video trailer below.
Reaper of Souls will have a new campaign, where you will be up against the Angel of Death Malthael. It will feature a new setting, Westmarch, a medieval Gothic fallen city. The expansion also increases the level cap to 70 – meaning your character will be able to get new skills and runes.
The end game has been completely rethought too. ‘End game‘ is when you have completed all of the campaign quests and challenges, but continue playing. Reaper of Souls promises to give players greater challenges once the main game is over.
The other major feature of Reaper of Souls is the new character class The Crusader. Carrying a shield and flail, this class is a mid-range melee fighter, which will give players yet more playing style choice.
Diablo III is currently available on PC, and is coming to consoles soon.
