Another console version of Diablo 3 is on the way, and this time it will hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition, as you might expect, includes the Reaper of Souls expansion. It's set to hit the new generation of consoles, along with PS3 and 360, on August 19.

Those who have already played on the last-gen consoles will be able to transfer their characters to the PS4 and XBO versions--in the same console family, obviously. Pre-ordering the "Ultimate Evil Edition" will get you exclusive Infernal Pauldrons, which provide extra health, life regen, and cooldown reduction at level 1. These console versions will introduce a new Apprentice Mode, which boosts lower-level players when they're fighting alongside higher-leveled friends. And like the other console versions, it will let you play couch and online co-op.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition will cost $59.99 on the new generation of consoles, and $39.99 on last-gen consoles.
