Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition dated for consoles

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition launches on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on August 19. 

The console-exclusive Ultimate Evil Edition includes all of the content from the original Diablo III, as well as new features and updates from the Reaper of Souls expansion. With six customisable character classes, five acts, and hours of gameplay, this all-inclusive package sounds like it should be enough to keep Diablo III fans happy.

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 feature 4-player same-screen and online multiplayer.

The Ultimate Evil Edition also introduces a new Apprentice mode to boost 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.

"The Ultimate Evil Edition brings Reaper of Souls to console gamers for the first time, and wraps all of the content, features, and updates we've released for Diablo III into one epic package," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Whether you're a veteran of the crusade against the forces of evil on PC or are just stepping foot into Sanctuary for the first time, there's never been a better time to experience Diablo III from the comfort of your couch."

In addition to the Crusader hero and Act V, the Ultimate Evil Edition includes a revamp of the game's loot system, an expanded Paragon progression system for max-level characters, and several other improvements to the Diablo III game experience, including:

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

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

Nephalem Rifts: Fully randomised dungeons offering endless replay-ability 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 customisation options
All of this new content comes with the Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition, which players can purchase beginning August 19 at a suggested retail price of $59.99 for the PS4™ computer entertainment system or Xbox One, or $39.99 for the PS3™ or Xbox 360—check with your local retailer for availability.

Those who preorder their copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition will also receive the exclusive Infernal Pauldrons bonus in-game item. Wearable at level 1, these devilishly sharp transmogrifiable shoulderplates 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).

In addition, players who fought the forces of evil in the original PS3 or Xbox 360 versions of Diablo III will be able to continue their crusade against death. PS3 characters from the original game can be transferred to either the PS3 or PS4 version of the Ultimate Evil Edition, and Xbox 360 characters can be transferred to the Xbox 360 or Xbox One version.

One of my favourite games of last year. I could be tempted to pick it up again if anyone I know picks it up to play through on co-op.

I fancy playing this game. Meaning to get it in the PS3 so if I do get a PS4 might opt for it.

If you like the type of game you will have a blast, it is much better on the console than on the PC.

Why the long wait until August for the PS3 and 360 versions? Surely with the original Diablo 3 already available it shouldn't be that hard to create and release the Ultimate edition - unless we're been forced to wait to avoid making the XboxOne and PS4 look bad...
