Upcoming Diablo 3 for consoles will mirror PC with patches

2 min read


You know what’s annoying about gaming? It’s the constant bickering between fanboys. My console has X, your’s has Y, therefore I am better. It’s silly, because we all know the glorious Master Race wins every time! Blizzard are looking to level the playing field, at least in the patch department.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition is just around the corner, with a release date of 19 August. Modern generation console owners can rejoice, because they will receive patches around the same time the PC does. John Hight, Production Director of Blizzard, confirmed over at Xbox Wire (Via Gamezone):

Hold on to your rare helms, because Blizzard just announced that future patches for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition on Xbox One will mirror the patches seen on the PC version of the game. This means that the PC version’s new 2.1 patch will shortly follow on Xbox One.

John Hight confirmed the same on the Playstation Blog:

One more cool piece of news for PS4 players: the next-gen console architecture makes it much easier for us to offer ongoing patch support for the PS4 version of the Ultimate Evil Edition. This means that as we continue to patch the game on PC, we’ll now be able to roll out related patch content, as appropriate, on PS4 as well. It’ll take some additional time beyond the PC patch rollout, but we’ll get them to you as quickly as possible

So it may not be at the exact same time, but console gamers will at least be more or less up to date with their PC Masters brothers. Reaper of Souls was pretty darn good, fixing what many people hated about Diablo III. Will you be picking it up for console?
