Diablo® III: Reaper of Souls™ – Ultimate Evil Edition™ is just around the corner, and we've got some exciting news for players who are thinking of joining the crusade against death on the PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One™.
Thanks to the powerful new architecture of next-gen console platforms, we're happy to confirm that we will be able to provide ongoing patch support for Ultimate Evil Edition on the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. As we continue to patch Reaper of Souls on Windows and Mac, we will also be working to bring game updates to the PS4 and Xbox One.
John Hight, production director on Diablo III, discussed the announcement in an interview with Xbox Wire—"When we started on this adventure, we thought we'd never be able to do updates on the console side in the same way we do with the PC. This allows us to be more responsive to our customers. Our goal is to eventually make these updates simultaneous."
Patch 2.1.0 is currently in development for Windows, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One. This patch will introduce exciting new features and content to Ultimate Evil Edition on next-gen platforms, including (but not limited to) Greater Rifts, Legendary Gems, new Legendary powers, and the Vault—a mysterious realm filled with untold riches, located just beyond a Treasure Goblin's portal.
We look forward to exploring (and expanding) the world of Sanctuary with our console players, and hope to see many of you in Westmarch on August 19!
