Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition to get first major content update

The first major content update for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition will be released soon and brings a fair bit of content.

Here's what's included:

The “What’s New” screen

A “What’s New” screen will now appear whenever a player logs into the game (and presses “Start” at the Main Menu) after a new patch has been installed. As the name suggests, this screen will provide a quick overview of new features included in the patch.

The Vault

Whenever Treasure Goblins are defeated, there’s now a chance they will spawn a new type of portal through which players can enter. Inside this mysterious new realm known as “The Vault,” mighty treasures await…along with Sanctuary’s newest boss: the Baroness Greed.

Portals to The Vault can only be accessed in Adventure Mode, and that they will not appear inside Nephalem Rifts or Greater Rifts.

The Cesspools

When adventuring in Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts, players will have a chance to encounter a new randomised environment: The Cesspools. Originally designed as the sewers of Westmarch, this festering, dank underworld is now ready to explore and plunder!

Greater Rifts

Greater Rifts are a special type of timed Nephalem Rift. There are an infinite number of Greater Rift levels, and each level will be progressively more difficult than the last. Upon completing a Greater Rift, players will be able to choose between one of two rewards: a chance to upgrade their Legendary Gems or (if they complete the Greater Rift level within its allotted time) the opportunity to move on to the next Greater Rift level. Players can continue progressing through Greater Rift levels so along as they complete the current Rift level before its timer expires.

Greater Rifts can only be accessed in Adventure Mode.

Ramaladni’s Gift

Ramalandni’s Gift is a new Legendary item that will allow players to add a socket to any weapon that does not already have one. This item can drop randomly in the game world and will be consumed on use.

Legendary Gems

Legendary Gems are a new type of gem that can drop in Greater Rifts and The Vault and will offer powerful abilities when socketed into Rings and Amulets. Players will have the opportunity to upgrade their Legendary Gems over time by completing Greater Rifts.

Are you still playing Diablo III: Ultimate Edition? Is so tell us what you think. If not, you can order below.

I'm still waiting for news of a "Reaper of Souls" expansion pack on it's own as I already have the original game on PS3.

There won't be a physical separate expansion as the price of the PS3/360 version is cheaper than the PC expansion alone. Plus you can then sell the original version and save some more. If there was a physical expansion it would cost more in total. However if you bought it digitally then there would be a need, as it makes the original a waste, considering you can not sell it.

It won't be released as a stand alone. Think DD: Dark Arisen

The only difference there is that the original DD was not available digitally.
