The next chapter in Sanctuary’s epic saga has been unveiled. Originally debuted at gamescom 2013 on August 21 in Cologne, Germany, this is the opening cinematic for Diablo III’s first expansion set, Reaper of Souls.
No One Can Stop Death
The Prime Evil rages within the Black Soulstone, its essence screaming for vengeance and release. Before the artifact can be sealed away forever, Malthael–Angel of Death–manifests in the mortal realms with a deadly new purpose: to steal the Black Soulstone and bend its infernal power to his will.
CHARGE FORTH AS THE CRUSADER
Impenetrable armor, gleaming weapons, and heavy, heavy damage–wield the power of the Crusader, unbreakable new hero of the mortal realms.
TAKE ACT V BY STORM
From the sprawling streets of Westmarch to the ancient walls of the Pandemonium Fortress, battle with a host of deadly new enemies throughout the all-new Act V of the Diablo III storyline.
RISE TO NEW HEIGHTS OF POWER
Advance your hero of choice through additional levels of supremacy, mastering bold new powers of raw, demon-slaying potential along the way.
NEVER STOP EXPLORING
Travel freely to any area, conquering new and diverse challenges with unimaginable rewards.
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.
