A few MyGaming readers and forum members have been remarking that Kalahari has apparently scheduled delivery of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls pre-orders for 28 March – despite the game launching on 25 March 2014.
This stems from customers’ order pages stating the 28 March delivery date.
A Kalahari spokesperson explained that this is a bug in the company’s system which is being resolved.
Kalahari confirmed that it has stock of Reaper of Souls and pre-orders will be released on Monday to meet the Tuesday, 25 March launch date.
Kalahari added that deliveries outside of major centres may not receive the game on launch day, as indicated when the order is placed.
There is still time to place your pre-order at a preferred retailer ahead of the 25 March launch date – check out our pricing roundup: Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – pre-order price round-up
About Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls
Reaper of Souls adds chapter V to the Diablo 3; players will battle through the sprawling streets of Westmarch to the ancient walls of the Pandemonium Fortress. Of course, new denizens of hell will stand in the path of victory.
The defeat of Diablo, Lord of Terror, should have given rise to an age of hope. Instead, it has drawn out a shadowy being of immense power, whose malevolent purpose is yet to be revealed
Malthael, the fallen Archangel of Wisdom, vanished after the events depicted at the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. In Reaper of Souls, he returns as the Angel of Death and seizes the Black Soulstone, which contains the essence of the Prime Evil. It now falls to the players to track down Malthael and stop him before he unleashes irreversible havoc on the world.
Fortunately, a new hero is ready to join the cause and bring Malthael to justice—the Crusader. Driven by a centuries-long quest to cleanse the corruption blighting their beloved Zakarum faith, Crusaders are warriors of righteousness who have been hardened through relentless, brutal combat with the foul evils plaguing eastern Sanctuary.
The expansion will see the addition of a new hero – the Crusader – who wears heavy armour and uses a mix of brutal melee skills to get in close to enemies, while casting battle magic to bolster allies and weaken foes. The Crusader is described as a walking tank.
Reaper of Souls increases the game’s level cap to 70, and players continuing with the classic characters will find new weapons, armour, abilities, and spells.
Diablo 3’s Paragon progression system is also being upgraded for the expansion. Two new game modes will be added – Loot Runs and Nephalem Trials.
