For months now the Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition has been advertised for PS4, leaving Xbox One fans to wonder if they’d ever see this release. Today it was confirmed that the latest iteration of Blizzard’s clicktastic RPG is coming not only to Xbox One and PS4, but Xbox 360 and PS3 as well.[youtube http://youtu.be/6VYi_gblQj4]
The Ultimate Evil Edition includes the original Diablo 3 adventure and the new Reaper of Souls expansion. This version of the game will also support 4-player local and online co-op as well as an Apprentice mode, which will boost lower level character’s stats when playing with their higher level friends.
The burning question I’m sure you all have is; “will my characters and save data transfer from the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions?” They absolutely will. You’ll be able to take all of your characters and your precious loot with you if you decide to upgrade to the Xbox One or PS4 version, but it’s worth noting that there is a bit of a price difference between the generations. Xbox 360 and PS3 players can purchase The Ultimate Evil Edition for $39.99, but for those playing on current gen, you’ll have to shell out the full $59.99.
Now the question I have to ask myself is; “Am I seriously going to own Diablo 3 on three separate platforms?” And the answer is yes. I will own the holy trinity of the most un-holy series of all time. I’ve eagerly been awaiting confirmation of an Xbox One version of the game and now I know what I’ll be doing in August.
Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition is scheduled to release on August 19th for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, and PS3.
