Blizzard Entertainment says that Diablo III, the latest chapter in the action–RPG series, is now available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 throughout North America, Latin America, Europe, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
In Diablo III, players take on the role of one of five heroic characters—barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter—and embark on a perilous quest to save the world of Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells.
As players make their way from the demon-besieged town of New Tristram to the Diamond Gates of the High Heavens, they’ll engage in pulse-pounding combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power, and meet key characters who’ll join them in battle or aid them along the way.
Would-be heroes who seek to confront the Lord of Terror and take the fate of mankind into their own hands can purchase the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Diablo III at retailers worldwide for a suggested retail price of $59.99.
The PS3 version of Diablo III is also available for purchase digitally via the PlayStation Network. The Xbox 360 version of the game will be available via Xbox LIVE starting October 4.
Both console versions of Diablo III have been localized in English, German, French, Latin American Spanish, European Spanish, Russian, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese for multilingual demonic warfare.
