Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition dated, confirmed for old and new consoles

Supports character transfers from older console game.

Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition - Diablo 3 plus Reaper of Souls expansion - has been confirmed for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and, as we knew, PS4.

It's coming out 19th August - a Tuesday (that's a worldwide date by the way).

Crucially, you will be able to transfer your PS3 or Xbox 360 Diablo 3 character into the new game to carry on your adventure. What's more, you can choose to transfer to PS4 from PS3, and to Xbox One from Xbox 360.

All four versions have same-screen four-player co-op and online multiplayer.

There's an Apprentice mode that boosts low-level players' power while fighting with higher level friends, and you'll be able to share treasures using an in-game mail system, including Player Gifts that are specified for a certain friend and contain rare treats.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game will be cheaper than the PS4 and Xbox One versions. Blizzard suggested $59.99 for game on newer consoles and $39.99 for the game on older consoles.

Pre-order now to get an Infernal Pauldrons in-game item.
