Diablo 3's next expansion is named "Reaper of Souls"?
It looks like the teaser for the next Diablo 3 expansion just went live and everything points to the new expansion being named "Reaper of Souls".


According to the official website "Reaper of Souls" is a trademark and linked to Diablo 3, with Gamescom coming up next week it wouldn't be surprising to see the expansion for Diablo 3 announced there.

    Hopefully it's not only a "story" teaser and they'll have some gameplay news to show as well :D

    "Reaper of Souls" makes me believe this will deal in large part with Malthael, the Archangel who went awry and wielded scythes, who just happens to be reminiscent of...?

    You got it, the Grim Reaper.

    I presume they're trying to keep the "Lord of Destruction" template going, even if that means sounding a bit cheesy.

    Also presuming this is Malthiel.

    Or it could be pointing to the fact that Adria "reaped" the souls of the 7 evils? Your idea ddoes make sense though and I'm sure they'll tie in Mathael somewhere. All I can say is I'm FUCKING STOKED!

    On another note I bet you we'll get a cinematic teaser but nothing too big; Blizzcon 13 will see Playable demo and most likely a huge gameplay presentation, as well as associated talks about story and development. I wonder where we'll be going in sanctuary, the picture doesn't really reveal too much other than it definiteley has something to do with a winged creature, which could be Mathael, or it could be tathamet although I'd bet they're saving Tath for the final expansion.

    Dont be stupid people, ofc its Malthael -_- Then only Imperius (he is corrupted by diablo, making him Fallen archangel of Wrath) and Adria (Diablo essence in her) remain, and my idea is that the ultimate "end of the franchise boss" can be some Tathomet consciousness in the depths of all 9 hells, a place where all demons are spawned from lets say Tathomet's original heart, just as angels are born from Anu's spine and where did all banished souls of the 7 demon lords went, forming back Tathomet, or at least his manifestation in form of fire and darkness, fighting you with 7 heads, each using different skills, on stages like WoW boss. Thats MY idea and i would love to see it. Np Blizz you can hire me i wont mind.

    Finally explanation who is the dude on Diablo 2 cover? In every Diablo the cover art has always presented the final boss of the game. Diablo 2 cover guy sure looks like the Grim Reaper himself (I have seen him, yes).

    Look at the bottom of the official site:
    ©2013 BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT, INC. REAPER OF SOULS IS A TRADEMARK, AND DIABLO IS A TRADEMARK OR REGISTERED TRADEMARK IN THE U.S., AND/OR OTHER COUNTRIES.

    D2 cover featured the dark wanderer... who was Diablo. Sorry for the spoiler :)

    So Overneathe, still sceptical about the expansion announcement at Gamescom? See you on 21st August!

    I'm not skeptical anymore, but I am sad that Blizz will start announcing things on different conventions. This means even more unneeded hype, but most importantly - the watering down of BlizzCon, which was by far my favorite out there.

    That was the Warrior, aka Prince Aidan, from Diablo, who had plunged Diablo's soulstone into his own forehead in an attempt to control the demon after defeating him. He became more and more skeletal in appearance as the story of Diablo II progressed and, to quote Marius, he 'hadn't been gaining strength, he had been losing what was left of his humanity.'

    Because the cover doesn't dictate anything. In Blizzard games covers have been a good guy, a bad guy, a random guy.... anything really. Just needs to have something to do with the game and look good.
