BlizzCon 2013 is less than a month away, and when would be a better time to show off the new upcoming expansion to Diablo III than then? November 8th and 9th are the two days you can get hands-on with the expansion for both PC and PS4. The expansion adds a new playable character called the Crusader, new items, skills, runes and of course new monsters to slay. If you aren’t going to BlizzCon then you can purchase what they call a “virtual ticket” and watch the 2-day event from your computer. And yes, this expansion will also be ported over to the 360 and PS3 games when it is released in 2014.
