The trailer showcases the new “Adventure Mode,” the new artisan: the Mystic, and the updated Paragon system.
Diablo III fans have been asking for a mode that unlocks all waypoints and simply lets them adventure as they see fit will finally have it, in the form of Reaper of Souls‘ “Adventure Mode.” Blizzard has released a new trailer that showcases the new mode, as well as many of the new gameplay improvements that are coming with the dungeon crawler’s expansion pack.
In Adventure Mode, players are free to explore the entirety of an Act’s map, searching out bounties and finding “Nephalem Rifts” (portals to mini-dungeons). The trailer also gave a little more detail on what the new clan system will look like (spoiler: it looks pretty similar to how World of Warcraft‘s guilds work).
The trailer then showed how the Mystic and her two functions (enchanting and trasmogrification) will work, before going on to show us a bit more about the upcoming changes to the Paragon levels system.
It is comprised of gameplay mostly from the Crusader’s point of view, giving us a peek at how he will play.
Expect to hear a lot more about Reaper of Souls over the weekend, when Blizzard’s annual BlizzCon convention will take place. Reaper of Souls is currently slated for a 2014 release date on PC and PS4.
