Diablo 3 has an expansion coming out next month, titled Reaper of Souls, but I am sure many of you knew that. There have already been some pre-order bonuses announced, which follow the standard of going across Blizzard’s myriad properties, and as such, really rewarding the Blizzard devotee. A pair of new rewards has been announced, which will be available to anyone purchasing the expansion before March 31, 2014, nearly a week after the release of the game itself. Leading this pair is an item actually meant for Diablo 3, The Wings of Valor artifact. This appears to give your character glowing wings. It looks nice, and cosmetic items tend to be very good giveaways, as they don’t change anything in the gameplay.
However, the real big deal here is the other thing being offered. Valla the Demon Hunter. Looking like a normal Demon Hunter from Diablo 3, this isn’t a reward affecting Diablo 3 itself. What it is though, is a reward for the upcoming Blizzard MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. That’s right, with the pre-purchase, or opening week purchase of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls, you get a free character for Heroes of the Storm. I would not be surprised if that alone drove more than a few pre-orders. You can head over to Battle Net to pre-order the expansion at any time.
