Diablo III ‘Reaper of Souls’ Expansion Officially Announced

Posted on August 21, 2013 AT 03:34am

Diablo III game director Josh Mosqueira took to the stage at Gamescom today to officially announce that the game’s first expansion will be titled Reaper of Souls, just as the teaser earlier this month suggested.

Reaper of Souls focuses on Malthael, the angel of death, who has stolen the black soulstone which contains the soul of Diablo. The Crusader, a heavily armored class with abilities such as Shield Bash and Falling Sword, will be added with the expansion.

Loot 2.0 will also be introduced which increases the chance of picking up items for your class and reduces the amount of loot you get overall to prevent players from picking up lots of useless items. A new artisan is being added, the Mystic, who will allow you to re-roll the stats on items.

Finally, the level cap is being raised to 70 and the cap on Paragon Levels is being removed.
