Blizzard’s Hack-and-Slash Franchise gets bigger this year as Diablo III comes to PS4 and Xbox One.
The current-generation console port is set to be launched this coming August, and will include Diablo 3’s most recent expansion, Reaper of Souls. The full game package, dubbed as Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition, including the base game and the recent expansion, will come to PS4 and Xbox One this coming August 19, 2014, and will also be available for PS3 and Xbox 360.
Statement from Blizzard:
“The console version of Reaper of Souls has been designed to take advantage of the unique features of the console platforms. All four console versions of the Ultimate Evil Edition feature4-player same-screen and online multiplayer—whether you’re banding together on the same couch or joining the fray via PlayStation®Network or the Xbox Live online entertainment network, Reaper of Souls makes it easy to experience Diabloin the best way possible: with your friends.
The Ultimate Evil Edition introduces even more ways for players to share their adventures. A new Apprentice mode boosts low-level players’ power while adventuring with high-level friends, making it easier than ever to play together. Players will also be able to share treasures with other players on their friends lists via an in-game mail system, including mysterious Player Gifts containing rare loot for the adventurer whose name they bear.”
