New Diablo II Expansion Set Details
8:37 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

GameSpot has received some new information and screenshots in regards to Blizzard's upcoming expansion set for their isometric RPG Diablo II. Titled Lord of Destruction, this expansion set adds two new character classes as well as a wealth of new items, abilities, and senarios.


One of the new items featured in the new screenshots is the Eaglehorn, classified as a Crusader Bow. A unique Elite weapon, the Eaglehorn adds bonuses such as +420 to attack rating, the ability to ignore a target's defense, and +200% enhanced damage.


Another screenshot shows one of the new "charged" items in the game. Charged items will recreate specific character class abilities, such as casting the spell Bolt. However, as the name implies, they will have a limited number of charges (uses) before they become worthless.


Lord of Destruction has just entered closed-beta test phase, with CDs shipping to testers right now. The final version is scheduled for release sometime this summer.
