Blizzard has announced that the closed beta for their upcoming major expansion for Diablo III, Reaper of Souls, is now live.
According to Battle.net, "Invitations to this next phase of our public test are now being delivered to nephalem worldwide. If you've been invited to the Closed Beta, we'd love to hear all about your adventures on the forums, watch your live streams, and see screenshots and videos of your experiences in Sanctuary. Please keep in mind that Reaper of Souls is still in development, which means that all content in the Closed Beta is subject to change and isn't necessarily representative of the final game."
The expansion is expected to be released in early 2014.
