Have you ever played that one game, that convinced you to get a particular system? I did this year, at BlizzCon. Sitting up in a press lounge, my massive arse swallowed by a leather couch and just jamming Diablo 3 with a random Hungarian convinced me to get a PlayStation 4. And now, the expansion for that RPG finally has a date.

Reaper of Souls lands on PC and Mac next year March 25. It’ll cost ya $40, or around R400, and features a new act, a new class in the form of the Crusader and several other features. The standard edition of the game goes for the price above, while the Digital Deluxe Edition will set you back $60/ R600.

What makes that one so special? Here’s how Blizzard describes it:

You also have the option to prepurchase the Digital Deluxe Edition, which contains a wealth of in-game goodies: a collection of exclusive helm- and weapon-transmogrification recipes to distinguish your hero among the champions of Sanctuary; a loyal Spectral Hound minion to keep your adventurers company on their epic journeys; three additional character slots to accommodate new heroes; an in-game Treasure Goblin companion pet for World of Warcraft; and an assortment of Crusader-themed Battle.net portraits and Malthael-themed decals for StarCraft II.

I had a genuine blast playing the game on console, which is the version that I’m personally waiting for. The controls were rad, the visuals smoother than my chest and the co-op worked. If you’re still not convinced however, you can ready Matty Fig’s preview on the PC build.
