Diablo III players on PC are used to getting regular updates that address bugs and balancing issues, as well as new content. The console version of the game hasn’t received the same treatment, and Blizzard is currently debating how it will support the Xbox One and PlayStation 4-bound Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition after launch.
“We're still working out all the details regarding if and how Ultimate Evil Edition will be supported post-launch,” a Blizzard community manager said on the game’s official forums. “(e.g. will we patch the game after it ships? if yes, should we only patch to fix bugs and address critical game issues, or should we patch in new content as well? at what frequency should we patch?), so we don’t have an answer for you right now.”
Blizzard did confirm that Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will ship on all platforms with all updates included up to patch 2.0.5, and that there will “likely” be a “Day 1” patch to add in fixes and content from patch 2.0.6 as well. That would bring it up to date with the current PC version, but Blizzard is already testing patch 2.1.0, which adds leaderboards, more challenging rifts, new environments, and much more content.
Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition launches August 19 for PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The game contains the main Diablo III game and the Reaper of Souls expansion. As we learned at E3, the PS4 version of the game includes infected from The Last of Us, as well as a special Shadow of the Colossus transmog set.
