After years of hints (which started before the PC version was even released), Blizzard has finally announced the existence of the console of Diablo III. And we’ll get our first chance to play it at this year’s PAX East expo (March 22-24).
Sadly, Blizzard is only bringing the PS3 version to Boston. So if you were hoping to get your hands on the new DualShock 4 controller, I’m sorry to disappoint. But the PS3 version is better than nothing, right?
“Diablo III looks and plays great on the PlayStation,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We put a lot of care and thought into the PlayStation version to make sure it would deliver an authentic Diablo gaming experience, and we’re really pleased with the results. We can’t wait for players to try it out at PAX East.”
Diablo III on the PS3 will feature all of the enhancements found in the latest edition of the game including “the Paragon leveling system, customizable Monster Power, Brawling, and epic Legendary items.” PS3 players should be on the lookout for “an all-new user interface, including an intuitive control scheme and a new dynamic camera perspective.”
Oh yeah, and couch co-op for up to four people as well.
