I enjoyed my time with the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls beta, but we still have over two months to go until its release. In an interesting turn of events, Blizzard may let users preload nearly all of the content at the end of this month, so when the actual launch hits, it'll just unlock. The reasoning towards this move is that when the game finally does come out it won't put a strain on their servers.

It makes perfect sense, and should help solve a lot of the connection problems that plagued the original launch. If you're still playing vanilla Diablo III, you should get all of the content updates as they come, along with the removal of the Auction House, which is coming up.

I don't understand how to pre-download [Blizzard via PCGamesN]

Reaper of sales: Diablo III expansion has sold over 2.7 million

In its first week of availability, the first Diablo III expansion, Reaper of Souls, has reaped 2.7 million sales. Uhm. I mostly just wanted to write "Reaper of sales." I don't have anything else to say. Good job to Blizzard for responding to fan feedback with a $40 expansion that everyone went out and paid for, apparently. Path of Exile is free if you like click click click click games.more
