Diablo III game director Josh Mosqueira has just revealed all the new details of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls expansion during Blizzard Press Conference at the Gamescom 2013 in Germany.

Reaper of Souls focuses on Malthael, the angel of death and a first-class villain that seized the black soulstone which houses the soul of Diablo himself. Blizzard is promising a darker tale this time around. Indeed, Malthael can siphon souls from the people of Sanctuary, which allows him to turn citizens into his minions.

Blizzard also plans to revamp the loot system in the game. Loot 2.0, as Blizzard calls it, will have more drops for the class you are playing at the time.  Loot runs are also being added to the game: 20 minute random dungeons with a random boss for quick loot and coop adventures.
