Gamers over the world can be now breathe easy as the much anticipated Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls beta is soon going to be out.
The usual trend witnessed is that the first phase for Blizzard betas is usually limited to friends and family of employees.
However, this time around Blizzard has made an exception and now plans to invite members of the press as well as long-time D3players. About 3,000 of the most active players will receive keys for this part of the beta test.
The latest instalment of the mega-hit game, Reaper of Souls is all set to introduce a fifth act to the campaign set in the backdrop of Westmarch.
Players must battle the undead forces of Malthael, the angel of death. While fighting this new threat, players will acquire new loot and recruit a Mystic to modify their items.
Players can also restart their adventure with a new Crusader class character. The expansion has been confirmed for PC, Mac and PS4 thus far.
Even if you’re not one of the lucky few invited to the early beta, you won’t be left completely in the dark about the new expansion pack. There’s no non-disclosure agreement for the testing so testers are free to share details, videos, and screenshots.
Blizzard has explicitly stated that “When reviewing this coverage, please keep in mind that the Friends and Family Beta is still an early glimpse at Reaper of Souls, which means that all content is subject to change before release”. “We also encourage you to be mindful of story spoilers, as the Friends and Family Beta includes the entire expansion, excluding the final boss fight.”
