Posted December 14, 2016 04:37:00 Diablo 3 developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced the launch of a new expansion, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, to be released next year.
Diablo III: Rebirth will be the fifth expansion in the series, after Diablo II, Diablo: Reaper and Reaper of Kings.
Blizzard says the new content will be more than just a single expansion and will include all-new maps and new features, such as a revamped World Boss.
“Reaper of Souls brings players a new story driven campaign, new playable characters and new dungeons and raids to conquer, all while also expanding the lore and setting of Diablo 3,” said Blizzard Entertainment in a blog post.
The new expansion will also add the first playable female character in the franchise, and a new character, the Black Widow, in the Diablo series.
There are also new quests, classes, weapons, armor, mounts and other items.
It’s unclear how much of the new expansion Blizzard is talking about at this time, but in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Diablo 3’s creative director, Jeff Kaplan, said that Reaper of Soul will add new maps and more features to the series.
He said the expansion is “probably not the last we will see of the series.”
Kaplan added that the game will be coming to consoles “probably sometime in the next few years.”
Reaper Of Souls will launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 14.
