The Diablo III Reaper of Souls expansion pack may have been out on PC and Mac since March, but console players have been kept waiting for their opportunity to join in the quest to stop Malthael. That wait is now over with the launch of Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Players will be treated to the new Act V story in Diablo III, as well as a couple of new gameplay modes that will improve the longevity of the game. Character level caps have been increased to level 70 and a new class, the Crusader, has been introduced. The Crusader is a heavily armoured character with abilities similar to the Paladin in Diablo II. This means using passive auras to affect the battlefield, while wading in as an impenetrable wall of destruction.
Adventure mode has also been added to the game to provide a new way for players to enjoy old content. This mode simply lays out the multiple locations on a map, allowing players to travel back and forth without having to sit through all the story dialogue all over gain. It is massively helpful for the players who want to grind for the best gear, but don’t want to listen to Deckard Cain again.
Nephalim Rifts are also randomly generated dungeons for players to delve into for more loot. Just open one up and rush in to clear out the monsters and claim the prize at the end. It adds a much needed amount of variety to what can be a rather monotonous hack-and-slash progression.
Nemesis kills are also implemented in multiplayer mode to allow players to gain rewards for avenging their friends; while an in-game mailing system is in place to make it easier to share items between friends. Those who played Diablo III on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be able to transfer progress to the new edition of the game.
