Blizzard Confirms DIABLO 3: Ultimate Evil Edition for PS4 and Xbox One!

Earlier today, Blizzard has announced the release of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, which will be hitting shops August 19 for multiple formats – Xbox One, PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360.

This version of the game, which includes both the original Diablo III and its recent expansion Reaper of Souls, had only previously been confirmed for a PS4 release. 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 adds 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.

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.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls was released for PC and Mac back in March and, for the most part, has been favourably received by critics and gamers alike. Here’s the cinematic trailer for the said expansion game.
