“With Reaper of Souls, we’re taking Diablo III back to its darker, deadlier roots and also giving players a new way to experience the game,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to adding a new character class, a new act, and tons of fully randomized new content, we’re opening up the world so players are free to explore the game as they see fit, whether it’s following along with the story line or charting their own course across Sanctuary.”

Thankfully, Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls will not be distributed in the Philippines by the infamous X-Play but will be brought to us instead by Asiasoft at an SRP of Php1,800 for the Standard Edition and Php3,500 for the Collector’s Edition. A list of retailers and outlets that will be accepting pre-orders for Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls will be released soon.
