Diablo III arrives on consoles this September, and we suspect the launch of this new expansion won't be too far behind.

“The lords of hell rage within the Black Soulstone, their souls 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,”a blurb details on the official Reaper of Souls website.

This new expansion will also raise Diablo III’s existing level cap from sixty to seventy, return the artisan known as The Mystic to the game, tweak and revamp the existing Paragon mode, and add a new multiplayer game type known as Loot Run which sees a team of players tackling a completely randomised 15-20 minute dungeon with environment, loot, enemies and bosses all determined by a dice roll.
