The Infoceptor, a site dedicated to the coverage of Blizzard Games, has uncovered
confirming evidence about Blizzard's expansion plans for
Diablo II. Infoceptor staff
extracted a hidden text file that contained data that may reveal a potential
expansion's new classes, skills, items and monsters.
The data uncovered suggests that an expansion will feature two new classes: the Druid
and the Assassin. According to the data contained in the text file, the Druid will
possess magic skills including elemental and summoning spells. Infoceptor speculates
that the Druid would be a cross between a Necromancer and a Sorceress, with
additional self-boosting spells. The Assassin will be attack-oriented and may be
able to obtain the ability to become invisible.
Blizzard has not announced plans for a Diablo II
expansion. Infoceptor's speculation about a potential expansion is based entirely
on the data contained in a file that can be extracted from the
Diablo II CD itself. RPGamer
has placed a call to Blizzard and will bring you an official statement regarding a possible
expansion as soon as one is issued.
