SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,588MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Blizzard has released a brand new video for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. The expansion will hit live service on March 25th and this video gets players excited about what Act V and the expansion will bring to the game: Adventure Mode, Bounties, the Crusader, a new story for Act V and more. Included in the video is a momentary peek at the final face off against Malthael, the Angel of Death himself.

    make it $15 or $20 bucks and I'll give it a go.

    I've already paid $60 for D3 core game

    I have already bought this just to play it for 4 days before ESO comes out.  I will likely return to play it more in the future though when I get done with ESO its a great little multiplayer game but theres no rush to play it right away as other ppls success doesnt impact you in any way.

    Yeah I'm kinda turned off by the $40 price tag as well.  Sadly I don't think it's going to see a price drop anytime soon.  See: Heart of the Swarm.

    Why should they reduce the price? Just because you are too cheap to buy it? I'm sure there will be sales in the future, so if coming up with $40 is too much for you, you will probably have a chance to grab it in the future. Save your pennies!!

     

    I already pre-ordered. Can't wait!!

    $40 is the going rate for a AAA game expansion.

    While true, I can see why some do not feel the value is there considering they are only adding one new class, one act, and a design decision that finally addresses the randomness problem with the game. I am pretty critical of Actiblizzard and feel the expansion is a sham, but my wife and a couple of RL friends have really been enjoying the changes thus far so I already know I will be buying a copy for her. The game is easy enough for her to play so I am happy shes happy..

    I just can't wait for adventure mode.

    Does anyone know if you have to level to 70 before you unlock adventure mode or 60 or is it available right away? etc.

    BadSpock - Adventure mode is available at level 1.  In beta, I played Crusader and level him only on Adventure mode without touching the story :)

    I don't know if I want to start leveling a Crusader in Adventure Mode or just through the Campaign Act I-V and THEN hit Adventure Mode.

    Feels more like end-game to me, ya know?

    But, I've run through I-IV soooo many times now. Maybe I'll just play I-V on Normal and just roflstomp everything very quickly.

    maaaaan! i can not wait. after they released the patch recently i haven't put d3 down. it's almost on the d2 addiction level. only reason i've stopped as of yesterday is realizing all my gear and levels are probably pointless after expansion lol

    After playing Marvel Heroes and experience "Adventure Mode" lite after level 20, this is one of the main selling points to me as well.  It allows that randomized run while still having an objective to focus on.  One of the main things D3 did wrong was not making boss runs worth their weight like D2 had.  It takes so much away from the potential of the game so this at least adds something desperately needed.

    I'd imagine Adventure Mode would be accessed before cap but knowing Blizzard that'll be their "end game" thing...

    Funny how people defend price gouging. Kind of reminds me of that L'oreal commercial "Because Your Worth It" LMAO

    Funny how people complain about the price...when it's had barely changed in the past 30 years. Who is the greedy one?

    Barely changed in 30 years.... Interesting. Maybe i'm getting kind of old but I remember things a little differently.

    "Though it's a fully featured expansion, Diablo II: Lord of Destruction does pack a hefty retail price of more than $30. So, the question with Lord of Destruction, as with any expansion pack, is whether or not the price suitably justifies the enhancements included."

    @laserit, you have to account for inflation. The price of money has changed since then.
  • BearKnightBearKnight Augusta, GAPosts: 461Member

    Still looks too easy, too cartoony, texture quality still looks really low, and i'm told 4-player coop is still the max.

     

    No thanks

    ps: Is it still forced online play? If i cannot play the whole game while offline anywhere I go then that's an insant no still.

    It wasn't easy at release unless you were gifted gear or I suppose farmed the right ways (Which Blizzard apparently did not think was the right way).

    I swore I would not buy it, especially at $40 for such little content. I have the week off work now though so I figured I might as well splurge a little bit =)

    Are you apart of the group that insists glorified browser games like TL2 and PoE are better than D3 2.0? 

    Unless your playing on a garbage machine with the graphics turned to max the game looks incredible. It is smooth, dark, gothic and loaded with gruesome and ALIVE details everywhere. 

    When exactly did it get too easy for you? At release, inferno mode elites were next to impossible to kill and if you play on torment 5 or 6 without the proper gear you are in for a rude awakening. 

    The RoS patch has saved d3.

     

    They didn't include an offline mode to combat piracy. That is the day and age that we live in. Deal with it. Releasing an offline game in 2014 is an invitation to steal it and the industry loses millions because of piracy. It's a small part of the reason why we haven't seen as many AA titles in the past 2 years.

    You have to beat act 5 with one character before unlocking it. but then its unlocked on all characters if im not mistaken.

    I've been trying to find proper details on adventure mode for a while now and all I've managed to confirm so far is that a character has access to them once they complete the campaign. The wording that is used, in game and when talked about by officials.. doesn't mention anything about only having to unlock it once with one character. They haven't said either way... just things along the line of "Adventure Mode is unlocked when you complete the campaign".

The game is easy enough for her to play so I am happy shes happy..

    So? LoD added two classes, one act, a few UI improvements, new items, new monsters, increased stash space, revamped hirelings, and the ability to play at 800x600. The price ranged between $30-40.

    RoS is adding one new act, one new class, new skills for existing classes, new items, new monsters, several entirely new game play modes, a new crafter, a level cap increase, new recipes for existing crafters, and runs between $30-40.

    The 'design decision' you disagreed with was corrected with vanilla patch 2.0 free of charge, as well as several graphical enhancements. Clan support was added as well.

    I don't see the problem here. Looks to me as if both expansions are roughly equal in content, with LoS just slightly ahead. While I will grant you that LoD did tend to range closer to the $30 mark, if you take into account inflation & increased development costs, a ~$10 higher price is actually pretty reasonable.

    Hooray for hypocrisy, I guess.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!
