Reaper of Souls, the expansion to the fastest-selling PC game of all time – Diablo 3 – has been announced at Gamescom.
Opening up a dark and terrifying new chapter in the franchise, Reaper of Souls sees Malthael return as the Angel of Death as he seizes the Black Soulstone, which contains the essence of the Prime evil. Players must track down Malthael to stop him before he unleashes irreversible havoc on the world.
“From the beginning, Diablo has always been about the struggle between good and evil, and Reaper of Souls explores the darker notes of that conflict,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.
Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls is playable at Gamescom. Blizzard had revealed that more details about the expansion will also be unveiled at Blizzcon.
Those lucky enough to get hands-on with Reaper of Souls will see the key enhancements to the core gameplay in action, with a new act and character class to play about with as well as tons of new loot.
