Blizzard has just confirmed their plans to release a brand new bundle pack for Diablo 3 that will release later this year. The new pack will be available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and has been named the Ultimate Evil Edition.
Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition will include the original game, as well as the Reaper of Souls expansion, and it has been set for release on August 19th this year.
For those that have already played on their old gen consoles but would like to purchase Diablo 3 for either the PS4 or the Xbox One, there will be an option that will allow you to transfer your current character over to another console. This option is platform based, so only Xbox 360 characters can be transferred to the Xbox One, and only PS3 characters can be transferred to the PlayStation 4.
As expected, there won’t be any variation between the different console versions, and all four consoles will be capable of four player local and online multiplayer. Besides from the added expansion pack, players will also have access to a brand new Apprentice Mode that will reward low level players who play alongside more experienced players.
The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition will be available for $39.99, whilst the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be available for a higher $59.99. If you pre-order either the new version of Diablo 3 for any console, you’ll receive a code that will unlock wearable pauldrons that offer vitality and cooldown reduction.
