The Xbox One version of Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will run at 1080p after a day-one patch, Blizzard Entertainment has confirmed. The patch boosts the resolution from 900p to 1080p. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for Xbox One also runs at 60fps, bringing the game's resolution and frame rate on par with the PlayStation 4 version.
"The game will be available [in] 1080p on both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One," Blizzard associate producer Tiffany Wat tells GameSpot. "Native 1080p resolution. You will need to download the day-one patch for the Xbox One to get that support, but it will be there. We're very happy about that."
That the Xbox One version of Diablo III will run in 1080p at launch this month is somewhat of a surprise. Blizzard Entertainment developers said last month that while it would be possible to get to 1080p some day, the studio did not expect to make it there for launch day on Xbox One.
Though Blizzard's statement today does not mention it specifically, the developer said previously that the Xbox One June SDK (an update for developers that boosts console GPU power) could allow Blizzard to improve the resolution though a patch.
Diablo III launches August 19 for Xbox One and PS4. Publisher Activision Blizzard announced this week that the game has now sold more than 20 million copies, including the Reaper of Souls expansion. Diablo III is currently available for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
