Diablo III community manager Stephany Johnson has revealed that while an official date is yet to be decided, the developer is “targeting this month” for the Reaper of Souls preload.

“Not yet! The exact date that the predownload will start is still TBD, but we’re targeting this month if all goes well. Note: this download will begin automatically (meaning, you shouldn’t need to do anything special),” she wrote.

The preload will include everything in the expansion to try and alleviate server strain on March 25. “This download will begin automatically, meaning, you shouldn’t need to do anything special,” Johnson added. “Similar to what we’ve done with other games, the pre-expansion patch (2.0.1) will contain all of the expansion data that’s on the normal disc. So, for players who don’t predownload, they’ll basically get everything that’s available whenever they patch up to 2.0.1.

“Expansion-only content like the Crusader, Act 5, and Adventure Mode won’t be playable until luanch and only players who purchase Reaper of Souls will have access to them.”

Diablo III Reaper of Souls is set to release on March 25.
