Blizzard Releasing New
Diablo 2 Expansion: Lord of the Dance

By Brian Briggs

Game developer Blizzard announced that they would soon be releasing a new expansion pack for their popular Diablo series entitled Diablo II: Lord of the Dance.

The story behind the expansion has the homeland of the popular Deckard Cain, Flatland, being invaded by a horde of fleet-footed dancers intent on destruction, and led by the Lord of the Dance, Michael.

Like the previous expansion, Lord of Destruction, Blizzard has retooled character skill sets and added two new character classes.

Janet Fitch, lead developer at Blizzard Entertainment, said, "I think gamers are going to be really excited to play the Leaper and the Fiddler classes. They've got some great skills. They're also going to be wowed by the Assassin's Plié Attack, the Druid's Dance of Thunder and the Barbarian's Spinning Hip Thrust."

New foes include zombie cloggers, tapper fiends, and prancing fairies.

The normally tight-lipped Blizzard developers did reveal that the final duel against Michael would not be a battle, but a dance off against the Lord of the Dance, himself. "I'm getting sweaty just thinking about it," said Fitch.

In related news, Diablo said he was pretty tired of being killed and plans to pass the torch to Diablo Jr. for Blizzard's upcoming Diablo III.
