Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will launch on August 19th on the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. The title includes all the content from Diablo III as well as the Reaper of Souls expansion, balanced and adjusted for console controllers. The pre-order bonus is a set of “Infernal Pauldrons” that provide bonuses to vitality, life per second, and cooldown reduction, as well as supplying fodder for transmogrification with the appearance of flaming shoulderpads. They’re all the rage this season!
Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will retail for $59.99 on the PS4 or Xbox One and $39.99 for the PS3 or Xbox 360. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear at this time that characters from the regular console version of Diablo III for the Xbox 360 and PS3 will transfer over the Ultimate Evil edition, nor does it seem that Blizzard will be offering a way to upgrade the old version to the newest.
Update: You will be able to transfer characters from the old version to the new!
