Blizzard Entertainment announced today that Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is in development for the PlayStation 4. When it was announced in August during Gamescom, the expansion was confirmed only for the PC. No release date has been announced.

It is not clear if Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is also in development for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls will be playable to the public on the PS4 at BlizzCon 2013, which kicks off next month in Anaheim, California.

Those in attendance at the event will get a chance to try out single-player and same-screen co-op demos, set on the streets of Westmarch as one of the game's original five classes.

BlizzCon attendees will also get a chance to try out the DualShock 4's new features for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, including the "Share" functionality and touchpad. BlizzCon 2013 physical tickets are sold out, though virtual passes are on sale.

Reaper of Souls will introduce a new class, the Crusader, and increase the level cap to 70. All of the game's classes will get new skills, passive abilities, and runes. The Crusader class is a descendent of the Paladin order and includes a version of the Fist of the Heavens skill seen in Diablo II.

Diablo III's philosophy toward loot will also be changed with the Reaper of Souls expansion. Loot will drop less frequently, but the loot that does drop will be of higher regard, Blizzard said.

Diablo III launched on the PC and Mac in May 2012 and has shipped more than 12 million copies to date. The game was released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in September. Diablo III's gold and real-money auction houses will be removed in March 2014.

According to a report from this summer, the PS4 version of Diablo III will be released in 2014. An Xbox One version has not been announced.
