    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 title, or at least a tease leading to it.

    Consider, 3-4 word phrases with "of" in them constitute 90% of all Blizzard expansion packs, and this seems to hint at the "that one bitchy angel from Act 4 turning evil" storyline most fans sort of anticipated from how events in Diablo 3 unfolded. What do you guys think?

    <li>The page is here: <a href="http://us.battle.net/d3/en/reaper-of-souls/">http://us.battle.net/d3/en/reaper-of-souls/</a></li>

    The screenshot of the page is below, in case it goes away.

    Says that \"Reaper of Souls\" is Trademark of Blizzard so I guess name is now 100% confirmed?

    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.

    While I agree that D3 is not fantastic game, I did end up spending around 300 hours in it. And I can\'t wait to spend another 300 playing the expansion!

    As far as Blizzard teasers go, this one really is very terribly lame.

    Maybe they\'ll spice it up over the next few days, with the changing image and such.

    *yawn*, so it will be the d3 expansion, who cares? i haven\'t been playing for a 3/4 year.
    i\'d rather see the actual game being fixed. an expansion at this time and day is just travesty

    In modern times, gaming companies whiteboard a full, complete game. Then they split that game up into 3 pieces and sell it to customers 3x in the form of a \"vanilla\" version and two expansions.

    What this means is that D3 vanilla is a beta. D3X is ALSO a beta. D3X2 is actually the full game.

    Those of you actively playing are just beta testers.

    I have faith that Blizz will make a good game out of D3. But I also know its still in beta. They need 7-8 years to make a couple major beta patches and test it all to eventually get it where it needs to be.

    In the meantime, they keep beta testers busy by tossing in paragon levels and stuff like that. lol.

    The words at the base of the door look like "Press" and "Beef" to me....

    The pessimist in me says the expansion will start out good, and then slowly Blizzard will dumb it down to make sure my grandma can play. And then they will remove more features and \"streamline\" the UI so that it\'s easier to play when ported to the iPad.

    Now, let\'s hope that the content and itemization of D3X1 actually live up to its name \"Reaper of Souls\" (like once D1/D2). ;)

    I created a simple wallpaper for this reveal piece:

    http://diablo.incgamers.com/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/9849/title/reaper-of-souls/cat/510

    Hopeful for the logo at gamescon this year for more wallpaper works in the future.
