Post by: Sophia on May 12, 2014, 02:49:44 PM

Blizzard announced today via press release that the console version of the Diablo 3 expansion pack, "Diablo® III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition", would be coming to consoles on August 19. This version includes both the original Diablo 3 as well as the expansion pack, and retails for $59.99 on PS4 and Xbox One, and $39.99 on PS3 and 360.

On August 19, the Angel of Death invades console systems everywhere as Diablo® III: Reaper of Souls™ - Ultimate Evil Edition™ launches on the PS3™, PS4™, Xbox 360®, and Xbox One®. Prepare your living room now, nephalem, because by summer's end you'll face off against Death himself—with up to four players banding together on a single TV screen.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition is filled to the brim with fast-paced action, awe-inspiring heroes, and legendary treasure. It features all the content included in the Reaper of Souls expansion set, as well as Acts I through IV of the original Diablo III for those who have yet to vanquish the Lord of Terror on console.

The Ultimate Evil Edition goes on sale August 19 at select retail locations for a suggested retail price of $59.99 USD for the PS4 or Xbox One and $39.99 for the PS3 or Xbox 360. Keep in mind that this announcement is still fresh and retailers may require several days to get their pre-order pages set up, but here's an early look at the Infernal Pauldrons pre-order bonus item to whet your appetites:

Pre-order & get Infernal Pauldrons! Infernal Pauldrons require an internet connection to be redeemed.

The key for the Infernal Pauldrons can be found in any launch day copy of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. (Please note that the Infernal Pauldrons key requires an Internet connection to be redeemed and cannot be transferred across platforms.)
