Diablo II Expansion FAQ
9:21 AM | Charles George | Comment on this story

Late Monday Blizzard Software posted a list of frequently asked questions about the upcoming expansion set for their incredibly popular Diablo II These questions should cover the concerns of just about any Diablo II player looking forward to the expansion set. The FAQ had this to say about some features that many hoped would be included in the original -- Guild Halls for guilds to store their collective goods, and an Arena for Player vs. Player combat:

Will there be Guild Halls in the Expansion set?

We made a decision not to include in-game Guild Halls in the Expansion, but at the same time we wanted to include what we thought were the greatest benefits from the original Guild Hall concept. This includes a bigger stash size and a few other things that we want to make available to ALL players of Diablo II, and not just those core gamers who seek out Guild affiliations. We know that guilds are an important part of our community and we are not dismissing their importance. We are instead trying to reach as many Diablo II players as possible with the widest amount of fun new content as we can. The goal of the Expansion is to make it a great addition for new and experienced players as well.

Will the Expansion include Arenas?

At this time Arenas are not a part of the Expansion set.

The FAQ also brings up some very interesting questions (and answers!) about more gameplay-specific things such as exceptional, set, and socketed items. This as-yet-unnamed expansion (one preview referred to it as Diablo II: Lord of Destruction) should be out for the Mac and PC in the First half of 2001.
