Blizzard releases Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion

If you pre-purchased it then you probably already know, but today is release day for the long-awaited expansion pack to Blizzard's popular dungeon crawl action game Diablo III, Reaper of Souls.

Reaper of Souls adds a new champion to the mix: the Crusader, a holy warrior trained to wield sacred power against the forces of darkness. The game expands play with a new act that brings you to the city of Westmarch and on towards a battle to the death with Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom.

What's more. Reaper of Souls raises the level cap to 70; adds a new game mode - Adventure - that gives you the ability to go anywhere and slay anything that crosses your path; employs random objectives called Bounties; adds Nephalem Rifts, completely randomized dungeons that offer endless replayability; and The Mystic, a new artisan that provides you with custom loot options.

Reaper of Souls is available in Standard Edition available online and in stores for $39.99, or a Digital Deluxe Edition that adds a heap of bonuses like special helm and weapon recipes, a minion, three additional character slots, and more.

Blizzard releases Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion


As silly as it may be, every time I see Diablo-something on iMore--there's a moment, in between seeing the thumbnail and reading the title, that gets me excited on the possibility that blizzard surprised everyone and released something on iOS.

Well, they won't have surprised everyone. They've announced plans to bring Hearthstone, their recently-released collectible card strategy game, to the iPad.
