Blizzard's Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls expansion adds new class, raises level cap
Announced during Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, is the first expansion to Blizzard's popular Diablo III computer game. Called Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, the expansion adds a new character class and raises the game's level cap.
Pitting players against Malthael, the fallen Angel of Wisdom, Reaper of Souls presents a much darker story than that of the series' third core game. Malthael himself hasn't been seen since the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.
In addition to raising the game's character level cap from 60 to 70, Blizzard is adding not only new loot, but also new monsters, quests, randomized levels. A new character class, the heavily-armored Crusader, is also being added.
The "M for Mature" rated Diablo III is currently available for PC and will be released September 3 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
No release date has been publicly announced for the expansion.
