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.

You Sure 1080p 60 fps is true for Sony ? it could be another lie.


Anyways, im happy Xbox one is on Par with PS4 now with this... Just shows that Xbox one is capable of doing 1080p 60 fps on games. its just that some developers are Lazy.


I honestly think MGS Ground Zero could of been atleast 900p but nope they make it 720p

<< LINK REMOVED >> Hit 1080p 60 fps on DIABLO. This doesn't mean every single game is capable of it. It's like when people talk about Forza being 1080p, yeah cool. But the original e3 presentation for it had a lot more than the final release, they cut out a lot of stuff to get that. It's resource allocation and such it's not just "everything can be 1080p 60fps we are just too lazy to do so".

it would be awesome if games on X1/ps4 would give us the option to choose between higher frame rates over resolution for eg. The crew, assassins creed, forza horizon all run at 1080p 30fps but id love to play them at 720p 60fps. Just an option id like consoles to have in the future but its nice when a game does both.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I think both systems could hit 900p 60fps easily. I agree FPS is more important for a smooth gaming experience. Hell Colonial marines is 1080p on my PC and it looks like ass. Its all in the art direction and detail.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Xone players are like the red headed step child of gamers. Every single post is whining and complaining "if this then that" Fact is everyone cares and if a game on PS4/Xone is not hitting current HD standards everyone complains. The only cliche posts I see are exactly like yours.

900p to 1080p is a minimal improvement but still a positive one. If day one patches can increase the games quality then why can't they fix Titanfall's 792p or Dead Rising 3' 720p or any of the other devs that released half baked graphics? Laziness I suppose.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Don't know that I'd call it pure laziness...I'm sure money is about 99.9% of the reason. Would cost devs $$$ to re-open those games and adjust for higher resolution. At this stage, is that really going to have a meaningful impact on sales of games that have been out for 6-9 months?

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> Probably not, but for however long the game exists in the Xbox ecosystem it's legacy will always be that it was "when the Xbox One couldn't handle modern full HD graphics". I insist that newer games like Titanfall have to still be patched because they can and will benefit from it.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> As a gamer, I'd love to see the titles updated. But it wouldn't change review scores or Metacritic scores. Even the technical specs themselves seem to be more fodder for fanboy arguments than anything else. Are there people thinking "no way I'm buying Rise at 900p but I'd get it at 1080p"?


Most people acknowledge that launch games are a poor indicator of a system's capabilities. Look back at things like Perfect Dark Zero and the first Madden compared to 2013 titles on the 360. No comparison.


Diablo, Alien Isolation, Destiny, Halo collection, Forza Horizon 2...AFAIK every forthcoming game with announced specs is hitting 1080p on Xbox One.

<< LINK REMOVED >> "Experience Diablo 3 in a way that only PS4 can provide, at 60 Frames Per Second in 1080p."

*Before anyone asks: No, sony never said that. It's a joke with the Watch Dogs inaccurate quote that Sony had published in their website.

All right people. Let's get this party started. I'm expecting atleast 1000 comments. I do NOT want to be disappointed today. We got XB1 and resolution in the same article so you can't complain about the lack of feeding material.
