Blizzard Teases Diablo 3 Expansion with New Site

Diablo 3 expansion teaser

A teaser web page doesn't look like much yet, but Reaper of Souls could be the next installment of the popular game of Hell.

Blizzard likes teases, surprises, and just being coy. Case in point: A new Diablo 3 page has emerged on the official site with "Reaper of Souls" as part of the URL. The image on the page is called "D3X teaser." Yes, D3 fanatics, this could finally be the expansion you were looking for.

The new page reveals only a quote from the Book of Tyrael, the angel that became mortal: "Death at last, shall spread its wings over all." The words are placed over what appears to be archway that leads to a place that only Blizzard knows.

The company has already said it will reveal a new cinematic for the game at GamesCom in Germany in less than two weeks that will "capture the attention of the Heavens, Burning Hells and all the shadowed places that lie between." Given the timing of this sneak peak, that trailer is probably for this expansion as opposed to any more promotion of the yet-to-be-released PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Personally, I am hopeful that any expansion will rekindle my enthusiasm for the game. I got bored with it after a month, and the controversial auction house has done nothing but damage the game, a fact that former Diablo 3 game director Jay Wilson acknowledged at GDC this year.

With this reveal, that leaves open what the recently trademarked "The Dark Below" could be. Aside from a new IP, it could very well be the next expansion to World of Warcraft, or perhaps a large content update for the game.
