The first Diablo III expansion has been unleashed; read our Reaper of Souls review to find out the verdict.
Diablo 3’s Reaper of Souls expansion is almost upon us. On March 25th, or the night of the 24th in some places, the floodgates will open and players will finally be allowed to check out the next Act of the vastly improved ARPG.
More than a few of us here at PCGN are going to be playing, and we’ve got our own clan. We don’t want you lovely lot to feel left out, so we’re giving away one copy of the Collector’s Edition to one lucky bugger. The competition is UK only, and you can find out how you can win below.
One of the most notable additions that Reaper of Souls brings is a brand spanking new class: the Crusader. A big, burly, defensive warrior that uses magical shields and holy spells. But maybe you think you could come up with a better class, putting Blizzard to shame. Now’s your chance to show off your wonderful idea.
Let us know what class you would have added in the expansion, and give us some details about how it would function. Let’s face it, we're probably going to pick the one that makes us laugh the most, but don’t make that stop you from coming up with a well-realised character.
The competition ends on Midday (GMT) on Monday, so you’ve got the weekend to think about it.
Here’s what the Collector’s Edition comes with:
- Behind the Scenes Blu-ray/DVD Two-Disc Set - Meet the teams behind the Reaper of Souls expansion with this Blu-ray/DVD two-disc set, featuring interviews, roundtable discussions and behind-the-scenes commentary.
