DIABLO 3 EXPANSION PACK UNVEILED
Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced plans for the first expansion pack to Diablo 3, its award-winning online action role-playing cash grab game.
Unveiled at the company’s seventh BlizzCon® gaming festival, Diablo 3: Raging Mists of Travincal will bring sweeping changes to the world of Sanctuary. Players will be able to adventure as one new playable race, the taxman, and take on new challenging zones that have twice the amount of item drops.
“In addition to the new referral systems, Diablo 3: RMT will add new features and a large amount of new items and loot for players to sell,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re excited to be offering a first glimpse of RMT for attendees of BlizzCon, and we look forward to sharing more information with everyone as development progresses.”
There are a couple new zones and stuff, maybe some new quests, but all of that is insignificant compared to the major enhancements we have made to the game. This is what our players wanted, not what we wanted. New features coming with the game’s first expansion include:
It is anticipated that Diablo 3: RMT will become the world’s most popular online action role-playing cash grab game (OCGG).

To keep pace with the continued growth of Diablo 3 as well as development on other Blizzard games, the company is currently hiring for numerous banking, financial, security specialists (with an emphasis on money laundering), promotional marketing specialist positions, and PR wizards.
