Those waiting patiently for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls to finally hit the consoles can now mark their calendars with an official release date for the Ultimate Evil Edition.

The Devil, in the form of Blizzard Entertainment, has been tormenting console fans for awhile now, teasing a version of the Diablo III expansion Reaper of Souls for their Microsoft and Sony boxes. Now the demon shall be unleashed on August 19, with versions for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The Ultimate Evil Edition will come with the original Diablo III, and all updates seen on the PC, as well Act V of the expansion. Blizzard is already starting pre-orders for the game for $59.99 on the next-gen consoles and $39.99 on the current gen. If you want to pre-order, you'll get a nifty set of Infernal pauldrons wearable immediately at level 1. They provide bonuses to Vitality, Life per Second, and Cooldown Reduction and can be transmogrified.

No other pre-order details are available yet, but Blizzard promises them "soon," or when they're ready. So start warming up your credit cards.

That's a sexy proce-point for the last-gen consoles but jeez, they still want forty bones for a digital vanilla copy on the PC? sheesh, f that ish.

This is the first news I've heard that this expansion is coming out on PS3/360. Up until now, I was under the impression that Blizzard pulled a Phantom Pain on everyone.

I'm now really excited for this, knowing I don't have to buy a whole new console to enjoy it (or re-purchase the game on PC).

Although I enjoyed the base game and expansion with friends on the PC I can't help but feel it's a but unfair for the now current gens to be gouged for the base game price being still unchanged with it being a game from 2012 and the expansion will be at least 4 months old by the time it comes out on the consoles, this still seems like a Blizz related blame though, not just a "lol blam the corps huehue", especially when Blizz has been known to be shitty with their pricing methods.

Still it's great they'll be able to take their own crack at at Malthael, I only wish the Wii U got a slice of the cake since I'd have loved to see full on tablet functionality and I'd still kill for the novel idea.

Oh look, Blizzard is developing it only for the new consoles and leaving us 'last gen' folk in--

Wait, really? It's coming to the PS3? This isn't just some cruel joke, or a typo? This is actual fact? Yay! My spirits have been raised. A little miffed about the price tag, but I'll deal. Do I have to buy the whole game again, or can I just download the new Act and class

i gotta say, those giant shoulderpads are better than a short term boring wings effect
