Blizzard has announced on their Twitter page that an updated version of Diablo 3 will be released for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, and PS3 on August 19. Along with the core game, the newest DLC, Reaper of Souls, will be bundled along with it. The X1 and PS4 editions will cost $59.99 USD, while the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions will cost $39.99 USD.

A new feature that was added is an Apprentice mode, where a low-level player can join up with a high-level player in co-op. A new in-game mail system was also added, which allows players to share their loot among those on their friends list.

Those who preorder or purchase their game on launch day will be given the Infernal Pauldrons in-game item, which may be equipped right away. This item gives bonuses to health, life regeneration, and cooldown reduction. Unfortunately, the pauldrons are not able to be transferred across platforms.

Those who already own Diablo 3 for the previous consoles will be able to transfer their characters to the next-gen consoles. PS3 characters can be transferred to the PS4, while Xbox 360 characters can be transferred to the Xbox One.

Reaper of Souls was released for the PC and Mac back in March, and was received quite well by the community. Owners of the console versions have been disappointed thus far that Reaper of Souls was not released for the Xbox 360 and PS3. That wait will come to an end this August.

  1. Well, that’s good news. I never finished D3 on the PC (account got hijacked) and skipped it on consoles the first time around, so count me in on this one!
