Twenty years have passed since the Prime Evils were defeated and banished from the world of Sanctuary. Now, you must return to where it all began—the town of Tristram—and investigate rumors of a fallen star, an omen that the End Times have begun.
Take a stand as one of humanity’s last defenders—barbarian, demon hunter, monk, witch doctor, or wizard.
Directly control your character against the hordes of the Burning Hells and unleash devastating powers enhanced for console controllers.
Lay waste to legions of evil throughout randomized, 3D environments. Face innumerable demonic villains, uncover quests in new locations, and claim an abundance of loot every time you play.
Play solo or form a party of up to four heroes—band together with local players on the same screen, invite online players via PlayStation® Network and Xbox Live, or mix and match. It’s dangerous to go alone!
A: Blizzard Entertainment’s epic action-RPG Diablo III is moving the eternal war between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells to a new battleground—the console! Armed with a controller and accompanied by an interface reimagined for console platforms, players will take the role of one of five distinct classes—Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, or Wizard—and embark on a dark journey to save humanity from ancient demonic forces on the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360. As these heroes adventure through rich and varied settings, they’ll engage in combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, grow in experience and ability, and acquire items of incredible power. Blizzard has also announced plans to bring Diablo III to the PlayStation®4 at some point later in 2014.

Not to mention we offer single screen co-op—say goodbye to split-screen!
