Yesterday was a massive day for Diablo 3 as Blizzard released their v2.0.1 game update which brings it in-line with changes coming in the Reaper of Souls expansion which is released on 25 March.
It’s quite amazing how many Diablo 3 players are not clear as to what they will and won’t get if they don’t want to purchase the ROS expansion. There are many new features and improvements to enjoy with the newly updated core game and we’ve put together a really in-depth guide which explains exactly how Diablo 3 has changed for the better.
