On September 3, Diablo III will launch on the Xbox 360 in the U.S., Canada, Spanish-speaking Latin America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand for $59.99. Both console versions of Diablo III will be fully localized in English, German, French, Latin American Spanish, European Spanish, Russian, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese. Further release details, including retail availability in Brazil, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia, will be announced at a later date.
The console versions of Diablo III have been custom-tailored for gamepad-driven action, with a dynamic camera perspective that puts your hero front and center, as well as an all-new user interface and an intuitive control system that make vanquishing evil feel like second nature. Diablo III also supports four players via same-screen local cooperative play or online over Xbox Live. In addition, the game supports parties composed of both local and online players.
Players who preorder either console version of Diablo III will receive an exclusive in-game item: the Infernal Helm, which grants an experience point boost to any character who wears it. Certain retailers will also offer limited-edition preorder bonuses.
“In addition to the fine-tuning we’ve done for the console versions, we’re also including major content and design updates we’ve made to the PC version over the past year, so players can expect an epic Diablo gaming experience when and Xbox 360 version launch in September,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.
