Blizzard’s Diablo III website is teasing something called 'Reaper of Souls' ahead of a possible reveal at Gamescom next week. The site currently features the following quote from Diablo sourcebook Book of Tyrael: "Death, at last, shall spread its wings over all."
Online speculation points to Reaper of Souls being the first expansion pack for the game, which launched on PC in May 2012. Blizzard is to host a Gamescom press conference on August 21, and studio president Mike Morhaime recently told Polygon that the company will be "sharing more Diablo-related news" at the German trade show.
Morhaime said in November 2012 that Blizzard was working on an expansion, telling investors: "The most important thing for us always comes down to the quality of the expansion and the gameplay, and so that will be a big factor in terms of driving our schedule." Here’s a list of the classes we want to see added to the game, including some familiar faces and a few new ideas.
Diablo III is set to launch on PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 3, and on PS4 next year.
