Blizzard has posted a sexy splash screen in a subheading on their Diablo 3 Battle.net page. It’s not linked from the main page and it doesn’t link to anything else, but it’s pretty and fans are furiously rumoring that this is the Diablo 3 Expansion preview and title. More details coming very soon from Gamescom?

  • The page is here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/reaper-of-souls/
  • The full splash image. (Note the number-like designs on the lower right and left of the door. Release date clues?
  • The splash image of the page is below, in case it goes away.

    Update #1: In comments, bottlekott provides the full relevant quote from the Book of Cain:

    And, at the End of Days, Wisdom shall be lost
    as Justice falls upon the world of men.
    Valor shall turn to Wrath-
    and all Hope will be swallowed by Despair.
    Death, at last, shall spread its wings over all-
    as Fate lies shattered forever.

    Sounds like foreshadowing for an Angel of Death type scenario to me. Note the angels on the DiabloWikiAngiris Council hit all of those terms. Malthael is Wisdom who has been lost for long ages. Tyrael was Justice and he fell upon the world of men in D3C. Imperius was the Angel of Valor… now turning to Wrath? Hope is Auriel and Fate is Ithereal. There is no Angel of Death, unless one of them becomes that, driven by events in D3C?

    Update #2: Thanks to Chris via email for pointing out that if you paste the URL of that teaser page into your Facebook, you get this:
