Blizzard Announces Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for Next Gen
Blizzard have announced that the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition
is going to be released for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 on August 19th.
The version of the game includes the original and it's first expansion The Reaper of Souls
. Xbox One and PS4 versions are expected to retail for $59.99, whereas Xbox 360 and PS3 will carry a more modest $39.99 price tag.
Blizzard have confirmed that preorders and launch day copies of the game will come with the Infernal Pauldrons in-game item, which can be worn at level 1 and gives bonuses to health, life regeneration, and cooldown reduction. The pauldrons will not be able to transfer across platforms, however, but they can be transmogrified. So there's that, at least. Also, those who own the previous console edition of Diablo III
, for either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, will be able to keep their characters in this new edition. PS3 characters can also be transferred to PS4, and Xbox 360 characters can make the jump to Xbox One.
