Diablo III: Reaper of Souls gets rid of the story

, | News

This weekend, attendees of BlizzCon learned about Warlords of Draenor, the next World of Warcraft expansion, and more details about Diablo III’s expansion, Reaper of Souls which will allow players to choose between playing in linear Campaign Mode or Adventure Mode. The new mode will unlock all waypoints on the map from the outset. Instead of playing through the story, you’ll be able to skip around in endless battles. Randomized Bounties will give players a goal to chase. These will vary from killing a specific beastie, to clearing a dungeon, or completing an event. Nabbing a Bounty will give players the normal gold and experience, and will give them special objects that can open Nephalem Rifts. These Rifts are portals to completely randomized mini-dungeons containing greater rewards and hazards. Finally, players can officially ignore the storyline.
