Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition Dated for Consoles

Blizzard has announced that the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition will release on 19 August for consoles.

Although originally announced for just the PlayStation 4, Blizzard has now confirmed that the title will also be releasing on PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The next generation versions of the game come with the suggested retail price of $59.99 (R650), while the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will go for $39.99 (R440).

Blizzard has also confirmed that you will be able to transfer your characters from the PS3 version to the PS4 version, and the same for Xbox 360 to Xbox One versions of the game as well.

Users who pre-order the game will receive the exclusive Infernal Pauldrons, which Blizzard describe as thus:

"Wearable at level 1, these devilishly sharp transmogrifiable shoulder plates provide Health, Life regeneration, and Cooldown Reduction. The key for the Infernal Pauldrons will be available in launch day copies of the Ultimate Evil Edition (cannot be transferred across platforms)."

Blizzard has outlined what improvements to expect from the Ultimate Evil Addition, which you can see below:

  • A revamp of the game's loot system

  • An expanded Paragon progression system for max-level characters

  • Adventure Mode: A new game mode that gives players the freedom to go anywhere and slay anything

  • 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.

  • Bounties: Randomized objectives that reward players in new ways for exploring Sanctuary

  • Nephalem Rifts: Fully randomized dungeons offering endless replayability and heaps of loot

  • Level Cap to 70: Formidable new spells and abilities that take players to new heights of power

  • The Mystic: A powerful new artisan who provides heroes with loot-customization options

Do Gaming’s review for Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls said, “Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls will ultimately be a success, but not on the back of its story. Luckily for the game there are multiple redeeming factors such as Adventure Mode, which help keep the franchise from stooping into darkness once more.”
