Crusade your way to level 70 in this new expansion.

Blizzard have unveiled the first details of their upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo 3. When it launches, you can expect new zones, the return of Diablo 2‘s Paladin (although it’s “The Crusader” now) and a level cap bump to 70.
The new Big Bad Guy in this one is the angel Malthael, formerly the Angel of Wisdom and now the Angel of Death, who steals the Black Soulstone that holds Diablo’s spirit and then lays siege to the city of Westmarch with an army of undead (in case you hadn’t guessed, this isn’t standard angel behaviour).
Westmarch forms the new setting for the game, and that’s where the
Paladins Crusaders come from. They’re “mid-range melee warriors”, but unlike their Paladin inspiration they’ve lost their auras and gained AOE attacks that help their co-op partners while simultaneously murdering demons.
One of the biggest new features will be ‘Loot Runs’, a new game mode that drops you and your friends into an entirely randomised 15-20 minute dungeon appropriate to your level so you can farm for mad drops. Check out the cinematic below (and the gameplay teaser) and let us know what you thought — the official site is also now live with more information.
