Blizzard is now confirming the existence of Reaper of Souls for PS4, and a playable version of the game will be found at Blizzcon this November. The expansion raises level caps, adds a new act and creates one new character class, the Paladin-like Crusader.
By the time Reaper of Souls is released some time in 2014 (I’d guess spring), Diablo 3 will have been out for quite a while on PC, and at least a fairly decent amount of time on consoles. With that in mind, if the expansion (on PC) is priced $30 the way Blizzard is implying, I have to imagine they’d come up with some sort of package where both the original game and the expansion could be purchased for $60 total. That would be FFXIV Power leveling a somewhat steep discount on the original, but by the time Reaper of Souls was released, I think it would be both an appropriate price and a good value given how much content players would be getting. Though I feel like I’m one of the only folks still evangelizing about how fun this console port is, so perhaps the game might seem like old news at that point to some.
Reaper of Souls is one of my most anticipated games of 2014, even if it’s just a lowly expansion, and it’s even better news that it’s on the PS4.
