Reaper of Souls, the Diablo 3 expansion, is slated to be made available for preload later this month, according to Blizzard.
Speaking on the D3 forums, community manager Stephany Johnson said the exact date is still to be decided, but the developer is “targeting this month if all goes well.”
“This download will begin automatically, meaning, you shouldn’t need to do anything special,” she said. “Similar to what we’ve done with other games, the pre-expansion patch (2.0.1) will contain all of the expansion data that’s on the normal disc. So, for players who don’t predownload, they’ll basically get everything that’s available whenever they patch up to 2.0.1.
“Expansion-only content like the Crusader, Act 5, and Adventure Mode won’t be playable until luanch and only players who purchase Reaper of Souls will have access to them.”
Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls will be released for Mac and PC March 25. The digital, standard edition will run you $40 while the digital deluxe edition will set you back $59.99.
