Those of you playing Diablo III via either the Battle.net desktop client or the game's launcher may, from this week, notice a 6GB background download initiate.
That's quite big, and for good reason, because that download contains a lot of files forReaper of Souls, Diablo III's first expansion pack set to launch on March 25 -- the client will download the Reaper of Souls files regardless of whether or not you've actually pre-purchased it. Also included in the download is files for patch 2.0.1, which will serve as a pre-expansion patch when the time comes.
