Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls video profiles The Crusader

A new Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls trailer shows off the new Crusader player class.

The Crusader is a new class that will be added with Reaper of Souls expansion, due for release on March 25.

According to the official blurb:

"Crusaders are righteous warriors who have been hardened through relentless, brutal combat with the foul evils plaguing eastern Sanctuary. In addition to wearing immensely heavy armor and wielding a wide range of cruel and punishing weapons, this new playable class uses battle magic to strengthen allies and weaken foes. A natural walking tank with a plethora of mid-range melee abilities, the Crusader adds power and versatility to any party of adventurers."

The Crusader class will be exclusive to players who purchase the Reaper of Souls expansion.
