Blizzard Entertainment’s epic action-RPG Diablo® III is coming to a new platform. In an experience reforged specifically for the console, players will adventure through rich and varied settings, engage in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, and grow in experience and ability, all while acquiring items of incredible power.
Evil Is in Its Prime
Twenty years have passed since the Prime Evils were defeated and banished from the world of Sanctuary. Now, you must return to where it all began—the town of Tristram—and investigate rumors of a fallen star, an omen that the End Times have begun.
Pick Up and Slay
Take a stand as one of humanity’s last defenders—barbarian, demon hunter, monk, witch doctor, or wizard.
Directly control your character against the hordes of the Burning Hells and unleash devastating powers enhanced for console controllers.
Conquer a Dynamic Battlefield
Lay waste to legions of evil throughout randomized, 3D environments. Face innumerable demonic villains, uncover quests in new locations, and claim an abundance of loot every time you play.
Diablo 3 has finally made its way back to a console. With the original releasing on the Playstation back in 1998, it’s been a while since we saw an entry on a console. Having spent hundreds of hours on the PC version, I was extremely surprised at how well the port turned out. There is a big loss of clarity and some toned down physx (not physics) but it makes up for it by actually being a fun game to play.
[Event Coverage] Blizzcon 2013 & Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Interview with Senior Level Designer Matthew Berger
Blizzard Entertainment’s wildly popular Blizzcon wrapped last weekend. During the con, attendees had a chance to play upcoming games, as well as the Diablo 3 expansion Reaper of Souls on the PlayStation 4 system. Representatives from Sony were on hand to showcase the upcoming port of Diablo 3 in a timed demo. The demo featured the new Crusader class available for the first time for people to test out and play.
I had a chance to interview Senior Level Designer Matthew Berger during my time at Blizzcon and we discussed a couple of the new elements being implemented in the PlayStation 4 version. The games features are broken down as follows.
Blizzard just announced that Diablo III is being developed for the Sony PlayStation 3 as well as the newly announced PlayStation 4!
Diablo III for the PS3™/PS4™ will be based on the core PC game and feature all the latest updates, including Paragon levels, the Infernal Machine event, Monster Power, Brawling, and more. This version is also being tailored with customized controls, a new user interface, and a dynamic camera perspective to provide an awesome Diablo III experience for PlayStation gamers.
Players will be able to wage war against the Burning Hells on their own in single-player games as well as team up and destroy countless demons with their fellow Nephalem in multiplayer games. For multiplayer, players will have the option to choose between four-player online (complete with matchmaking) and four-player local co-op modes for their couch-based warfare.
Just got my latest issue of Game Informer and other then some real nice Borderlands 2 screens and a decent Dark Souls page there was a sidebar stating that the N64 Remake of Golden Eye will be hitting the PS3 with move support September 30th.
The year just gets better and better for PS3 owners. The story mentioned 16 player online with a new challenge mode along with improved AI and visuals to boot (how improved over the Wii version? We’ll just have to wait a bit and see for ourselves).
