RPG 27 June 2017

Diablo III: Eternal Collection is an extended version of Dialo II: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition. It comes with all previous updated and the Rise of the Necromancer DLC. It was developed by Blizzard Entertainment, creators of the Diablo franchise and other hit games like Overwatch, WarCraft, and StarCraft. This edition of Diablo III is based on the Rise of the Necromancer DLC that introduces the titlar class to the game. It also brings in some cosmetic bonuses. Nonetheless, Diablo III: Eternal Collection is still the full third installment of the series together with the Reaper of Souls expansion that continues the story in the new Act V. The plot focuses on Malthael, the Angel of Death, who decides to once and for all end the eternal conflict between the High Heavens and Burning Hells. In order to do so, he steals the Black Soulstone that contains the souls of Diablo and other Demon Lords. The Angel of Death can steal the souls of the dead and turn their remains into his servants, posing a direct threat for the inhabitants of the world of Sanctuary. Reaper of Souls also introduces a new class, the heavy-armed Crusader that uses giant shields, heavy weapons, and holy magic. The Expansion increases the level cap to 70, overhauls the paragon level mechanics, and introduces new challenges and ways of obtaining new, more powerful items.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is the first expansion pack for the best-selling action RPG game, Diablo III. The add-on created by the Blizzard Entertainment’s development team has added a fifth act to the main campaign, in which Malthael, the Angel of Death, is determined to put an end to the war between celestial beings and demons; the Black Stone binding Diablo’s soul is supposed to help him achieve this goal. The expansion also introduces a new playable character – Crusader – and raises the limit of character’s experience level to 70. In addition, the creators decided to modify the loot system; now we find it less often, but it is more valuable and better suited to a particular hero. Some changes have also been introduced to the visuals, making them much darker than in the original version of the game.

A sequel to one of the biggest hits by Blizzard Entertainment. The plot of Diablo II follows the events of the first installment. The victory over Diablo turned out to be merely an illusion. Having possessed the body of his conqueror, Aidan, Diablo plans to unleash his brothers – Mefisto and Baal – with the purpose of enslaving the human kind once and for all. The player’s objective is to thwart the demon’s dreadful plans. The mechanics are very similar to those featured in the first part of Diablo – the game still emphasizes dynamic hack-n-slash combat as well as skill and psycho-physical attribute development by gaining experience points. The visuals in Diablo II combine 2D and 3D elements and the soundtrack was composed by Matt Uelmen.
