Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is an expansion to the best-selling dungeon crawler by Blizzard. Set after the events of the base game, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls offers another act packed with demonic foes to slay, gear to gather, and experience points to earn.
With a huge pool of new enemies, bonus modes and objectives, and an all-new character class to try out, Reaper of Souls gives us more fantastic Diablo III content. Whether solo or with a squad of demon-slaying pals, you'll brave the city of Westmarch in a lengthy new story chapter, grind for gear in Adventure mode, and much more. There are enough new features in this expansion to give any Diablo III player a reason to return, offering dozens of hours of more loot-driven smashing and bashing.
Main Game Features
- New fifth story act to complete
- End-game Adventure Mode
- Adds the Crusader character class
The story in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls picks up immediately after the end of the base game, with an added “Act V” for players to complete. After defeating Diablo and recovering the Black Soulstone, your allies try to contain it in an ancient tomb. Unfortunately, they are quickly stricken down by the fallen angel Malthael, who steals the Soulstone for his nefarious purposes. As Malthael's undead army descends onto the town of Westmarch above the tomb, the heroic player must cleanse the streets, wiping them clean of the supernatural attackers. Besides saving Westmarch, you must also hunt down Malthael and reclaim the Black Soulstone, a quest that takes you through the crumbling Blood Marsh, the bright heavens, and beyond. While it's shorter and less character-driven than the base Diablo III story, Reaper of Souls is an action-packed expansion that ups the stakes and offers a much darker tone.
The Reaper of Souls expansion offers quite a big chunk of content, with the main focus being the new story act. There's a big emphasis on variety in the new act, with a huge slew of fresh enemies to fight. You'll battle spectral beings, quick death maidens, and hulking executioners, to name a few. The town of Westmarch is depraved and violent, even when compared to the content in the base game. Even if you've played through the original four acts before, it's worth running through them again, thanks to the new seasonal hero feature. There are now timed seasons with exclusive bonuses for players to get, such as legendary weapons and cosmetic gear. To participate and earn seasonal rewards, you must make a new character and begin your adventure anew.
Luckily, there's a brand new class to try out, the tanky and formidable Crusader. Specializing in shields, heavy weapons, and a bit of magic, the Crusader is a great class for those who keep on the defensive. Once you've completed the main campaign, you can partake in the new Adventure Mode, which allows you to freely roam around the core areas of the game. In Adventure Mode, you can take on new objectives such as randomly-generated dungeons called Nephalem Rifts, hunting down bounties, and more. Reaper of Souls raises the player level cap from 60 to 70, allowing you to equip an extra passive ability.
For those fast-clicking fans who love Diablo III's classic loot-driven action, Reaper of Souls provides more hours of the content you love. In addition to new enemies, character classes, and objectives, Reaper of Souls offers an addictive end-game mode that will keep you coming back for hours and hours.
With the promise of special loot in the new seasonal rewards, you always have a fancy new item to chase. Between the fantastic new story act and the endless fun of Adventure Mode, Reaper of Souls is a must-play expansion.
