(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Diablo 3’s first expansion, Reaper of Souls, will be available for pre-order hopefully within the next few weeks.
According to Battle.net forum, Blizzard Entertainment is aiming for the pre-download to be accessible by the end of January.
“The exact date that the pre-download will start is still TBD, but we’re targeting this month if all goes well,” stated Blizzard Ent. community manager, Lylirra, on Diablo’s official forum.
When the download becomes available, it will install automatically.
Additionally, the upcoming patch 2.0.1 will contain all the expansion’s information, even for players who did not pre-order the download.
“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 pre-download, they’ll basically get everything that’s available whenever they patch up to 2.0.1,” they explained.
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is set to be “unleased” on March 25, 2014, and can be purchased for 39.99 for the standard edition, 59.99 for the deluxe edition.
