All roads are yours to tread. With every waypoint unlocked, you can proceed to any of Diablo III’s acts in a non-linear fashion, and enjoy the game at a pace that you set. As you play In Adventure Mode’s sandbox, you’ll amass blood shards that can be exchanged for mysterious artifacts, and earn achievements and victories across the breadth of the world.
Experience the spectacle, terror and diversity of challenges in darkest Sanctuary. Take on your choice of continually refreshed, unpredictable missions for the reborn Horadrim: eliminate threats, conquer dungeons, complete events, and more. When you capture a bounty, you’ll be showered with gold, power, and Horadric caches stuffed with potent items. You’ll also find rift keystones, which will grant you access to another realm entirely…
Step into the ultimate trial: endlessly new, completely randomized dungeons melded from the deadliest and most atmospheric locales on Sanctuary. Each rift is home to a varying amount of levels and monsters; they also hide mighty pylons, which boost your battle prowess in rule-shattering ways. Delve as deep as you dare, fight against remixed enemies and horrifying rift bosses, and earn tremendous (even legendary) rewards.
Reaper of Souls™ is the expansion to Blizzard Entertainment’s epic action RPG Diablo® III—a dark and terrifying new chapter in the ongoing conflict over the mortal realm of Sanctuary.Back To Top
Following the defeat of the Prime Evil by the Nephalem in Diablo III, the mortal realm of Sanctuary should have entered an age of hope and prosperity. Instead, this event has drawn out a shadowy being of immense power, one more sinister than any demon.
Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, vanished long ago. In Reaper of Souls, he returns as the Angel of Death and seizes the Black Soulstone, the ancient artifact containing the essence of the Prime Evil. It is now up to the Nephalem to track down Malthael and thwart his plans, a journey that will take them through the legendary city of Westmarch, across the fetid swamps of the Blood Marsh, and into the ancient halls of the Pandemonium Fortress.Back To Top
In addition to expanding the story of Diablo III with an all-new, action-packed Act V and introducing the incorruptible Crusader class, Reaper of Souls increases the game’s level cap to 70. Players forging ahead with their existing Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard characters will benefit from an array of fearsome new spells and abilities as they advance in level.
The expansion also builds upon several key features of the Diablo franchise, with a greater emphasis on randomized environments, horrific new monsters, epic new quests, and substantial updates to the loot experience. The redesigned loot system in Reaper of Souls focuses on rewarding players with even better treasure through targeted “smart drops,” new and improved multi-level Legendary items, and a third artisan, the Mystic, who can augment an item’s power and appearance.
A new Adventure Mode has been added as well; with all Waypoints unlocked in this mode, the entire world becomes the player’s battlefield! Included in Adventure Mode are two new game features, Bounties, a randomized objective system, and Nephalem Rifts aka Loot Runs, a randomized dungeon system, provide fun and rewarding challenges for players to tackle when they’re looking for new ways to test their might. Diablo III’s Paragon progression system has received several updates for the expansion, adding even more endgame character advancement and replayability.Back To Top
In Reaper of Souls, players are able to experience the world of Sanctuary through two different games modes: Campaign Mode and Adventure Mode.
In Campaign Mode, players reprise their pivotal roles as the heroes of Sanctuary in this latest chapter of the continuing Diablo saga. All quests, cut-scenes, in-game movies, and NPC dialogue are be available and progression is intentionally linear.
Adventure Mode is Diablo III’s new sandbox mode, where players have the freedom to explore and play the game however they like. All waypoints are now unlocked, soplayers can go where they want, when they want. The waypoint list has been replaced with a waypoint map, a metaphor for the world that serves as a guide for Bounties and a checklist of completed gameplay options. The world is literally your battlefield! Adventure Mode also includes the aforementioned Bounties and Nephalem Rifts.Back To Top
Quiet and elusive, Malthael was an enigma even to his own kind. In the years following the destruction of the Worldstone, this revered member of the Angiris Council grew increasingly distant and withdrawn, prone to long periods of isolation. Malthael’s eventual disappearance led to his transformation into the Angel of Death—a cataclysmic threat to the people of Sanctuary.Back To Top
Crusaders are righteous warriors who have been hardened through relentless, brutal combat with the foul evils plaguing eastern Sanctuary. In addition to wearing immensely heavy armor and wielding a wide range of cruel and punishing weapons, this new playable class uses battle magic to strengthen allies and weaken foes. A natural walking tank with a plethora of mid-range melee abilities, the Crusader adds power and versatility to any party of adventurers.
The Crusader class is only available to players who purchase the expansion.Back To Top
In Reaper of Souls, the game difficulty settings have been updated to Easy, Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, and Torment. Similar to the way the tiered settings and Monster Power work in Diablo III, higher difficulty levels present more powerful enemies who will potentially reward players with more powerful loot! Players are not required to defeat the game on a lower setting in order to unlock a higher difficulty setting (though some difficulties require higher-level characters). These settings can be selected at any time, for both Campaign Mode and Adventure Mode, making it more convenient than ever to find the level of challenge that’s right for you!Back To Top
