Prepare For Reaper Of Souls With Diablo’s New Update
Reaper of Souls, the upcoming expansion for the not so great Diablo III, is sort of a second chance for Blizzard. Diablo III failed, on a few levels, to deliver to fans an experience worth the years and years of waiting, with new ideas such as the Auction House essentially breaking gameplay. That’s all gone now, and Reaper of Souls already looks much better just because of that.
Suffice to say, I’m pretty excited for it, even after never returning to Diablo III after completion. Now it seems like I’ll have to log in, as Blizzard has release a patch for their action-RPG that prepares it for next month’s release.

A new patch will add two new features to Diablo III for Reapers of Souls, namely Clans and Communities. Clans are what you’d expect them to be, with players now able to form groups with each other and share common interests. Much like guilds in an MMO, Clans will have a 120-person limit, and player’s can only belong to one clan at any given time.
Communities are a more casual and social form of clans, with players able to join others based on their geographical location. You can share in a dedicated chat, with no limit being enforced on Communities. This is more suited for those just looking for casual partners to party up with, rather than dedicated dungeon crawler companions.
It’s something I wouldn’t have exactly needed in a smaller game such as Diablo, but at least these are changes that players can get behind. The update puts these features in open public beta, nearly a month ahead of the Reaper of Souls release.
Reaper of Souls still doesn’t fix the biggest problem with Diablo III however, as it will not feature offline play.
