That’s right, an expansion pack is on the way for Blizzard’s troubled online action RPG, Diablo III. Unveiled today at their Gamescom press conference, Reaper of Souls will introduce a new Act set in the city of Westmarch. It’s being described as a “darker” expansion. Whether that means there will be more bad saturday morning cartoon-quality villain dialogue or less of it remains to be seen. Malthael -the Angel of Death- will likely serve as the primary antagonist.
Details are light so far, but it has been confirmed that the expansion will introduce new endgame content as well as a new class, the Crusader, which is said to be similar to Diablo II‘s Paladin. The level cap will be increased to 70.
