The fate of Sanctuary will soon rest in the hands of PlayStation gamers around the world. Blizzard Entertainment today announced that they are in fact developing Diablo III not only for for the PS3 but also Sony newly announced PS4. system.
The PS3 and PS4 versions of Diablo III will be based on the core experience of the PC version, including 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 battle their way through the story in single-player mode and also experience the hack-and-slash joy of destroying demons and collecting loot together with their friends via seamless four-player online and local co-op modes.
During the recent Sony meeting Blizzard also announced 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.
