Earlier this year, Blizzard Entertainment finally got back into the console business with Diablo III on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Many felt that Diablo III on consoles was the definitive version as far as gameplay was concerned, but those consoles could not properly recreate the visual experience that the PC version offers. With next gen consoles, that’s now entirely possible.
Over the weekend, Blizzard showed off Diablo III running on the PlayStation 4, and it looks just as good as the PC version does. It also shows off some gameplay from the new Diablo III expansion – Reaper of Souls – which will be available on PS4 and PC.
With improved visuals and the gameplay enhancements seen in the earlier console versions, Diablo III on the PS4 may just be the definitive version of Blizzard’s action RPG.
There’s no word yet on whether or not Diablo III will make its way to the Xbox One in the future. At the moment, it appears to be a next-gen exclusive on Sony’s machine, but it’s hard to imagine that it will stay that way for long.
Oh, and while you’re at it, check out Blizzard’s other trailer for Reaper of Souls that details some of the new features found in the expansion:
