'Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition' coming Aug. 19 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will soon be able to join their Xbox 360 and PS3 counterparts in playing "Diablo III," with some new content added in for good measure. Today, Blizzard Entertainment announced "Diablo III Reaper of Souls: Ultimate Evil Edition" will be out on Aug. 19 for Microsoft and Sony's two currently supported home console systems.

Blizzard says that the new console version of their fantasy action-RPG will contain all of the content of the original game, plus what was included in "Reaper of Souls," the expansion pack that was first released in March for the PC version. All four console versions will support four player multiplayer for both offline and online play. There's also a new Apprentice mode that will allow new low level characters to play with higher level friends by boosting their power. There's also a new way to share treasures with other players via a new in-game mail system.

The price for the game will be $59.99 for the PS4 and Xbox One versions, and $39.99 for the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions. People who have already bought the previous version of "Diablo III" for the Xbox 360 and PS3 will be able to transfer their characters to the new game
