Diablo-3-Reaper-of-Souls-5

Gamescom is happening as we speak, and Blizzard blew as away once again! Blizzard announced the “Reaper of Souls” expansion pack for Diablo 3. Game Director Josh Mosquiera took the stage to reveal a new class, the Crusader, a burly and heavily armored character. Reaper of Souls will feature a new act, a higher level cap, new endgame options and, of course, more loot.

Did you read that! A new Class!!! Hell Yeah!

“The Crusader class is a holy knight, not unlike Diablo 2’s Paladin. They are described as “a war machine made human. The Crusader packs skills like shield bash and a deadly technique called Falling Sword, which basically turns the Crusader into a bolt of lightning crashing down from the heavens.”

Here’s the video:

“Diablo was defeated, and for a time we knew peace, but it was not to be…” 

This is what we’ve been looking for since day one! We are huge Paladin fans!

Reaper of Souls centers around Malthael, the angel of death, who has seized control of the black soulstone, which houses the soul of Diablo himself. Blizzard promises a “darker” game this time a round, and Malthael is certainly dark, able to siphon souls from the people of Sanctuary, even allowing him to turn citizens into his minions. Of course, Reaper of Souls will include new monsters, including fallen angels.

No Release date yet unfortunately. We’ll keep you posted! Here’s a few screenshots from the video:
