Blizzard Entertainment announces Diablo III for PS3, confirms franchise coming to PS4
Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that Diablo III is being developed for PS3. The company also confirmed plans to adapt the game for Sony's newly announced PlayStation 4. The PS3/PS4 version of Diablo III will be based on the PC version, so it will include all of the latest upgrades, such as the Paragon leveling system, customizable Monster Power, Brawling, and epic Legendary items.
In addition, Blizzard is designing an all-new user interface, including an intuitive control scheme and a new dynamic camera perspective, that will make questing and combat in the world of Sanctuary feel like second nature on PlayStation platforms. Players will be able to experience the game with their friends via seamless four-player online and local co-op modes.
Blizzard also unveiled today that the PS3 version of Diablo III will be shown live at PAX East, taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from March 22–24. Attendees there will be the first in the world to pick up a controller and experience the fast-paced action and visceral gameplay of Diablo III via the new custom-designed interface.
