Blizzard continues to add features to Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls and this game just keeps getting better. These new features added with the Diablo 3 console patch give players even more options to upgrade their characters and new ways to do so. Stay tuned to areyougaming.com for all your dungeon grinding news and future patch updates.

  • So here’s what’s changed, and how that affects the feel of Diablo 3
  • Diablo 3 ros patch
  • Patch notes used to be something that were rarely needed on consoles of the past
  • Then, when I was older and braver, I started to play Diablo II alone
  • On balance, the console version feels more fun to play than the PC version
  • For the console version they modified the UI to better suit the controller

There is a slight wrinkle to the new controls. There’s also a quick dodge/dash ability that’s been added to the console version. It’s on the right stick – your character will leap or slide a few metres in the direction that you push it. It’s a little bit like a toned down version of the Demon Hunter’s Vault skill, but available to every build and every class. Having that ability changed the way I played the game: when facing ranged enemies I’d dodge their missiles before leaping in to attack. It made me feel more daring – I was more willing to leap into packs if I knew that I could dodge any big hits.


Players can drop into a game that's already in progress locally simply by pressing start on the controller. From there players will be prompted to sign into an account and select a character. To leave a game in progress, players can hit "start" and use the "drop out" option in the menu.

There’s another new mechanic in the console version: Nephalim Glory. Think of it is as an extra risk and reward. As you play, you’ll see gold blobs fall from enemies – like you see the red health pickups. Picking up the Nephalim Glory globes increases your damage output, with gold lightning and thunder appearing around your attacks. It’s a stacking buff: getting stronger for every pick up you collect. But it’s also a timed bonus – so if you want to maintain your buff you have to press on and kill more enemies.

Can I drop into a game of Diablo 3 locally, or do I have to start from the menu

And as in every video game, you as the “hero” are tasked of kicking Diablo’s ass out of Heaven and restoring peace and order to the world. I am going to say it again, the premise of the story is fricking cool and the cut-scenes are fantastic to look at, but the delivery sucks.

That may be due to the consoles considering one another to be “icky-gross booger-brains”

Attacking, using potions and magic/skills is mapped to all of the other buttons. Each button is a skill/magic/attack and the best part is that you can totally customize which is which. That gives you freedom to do what you want and play as you want. Slaying down hordes of monsters earns you experience. Earn enough exp and you level up.


Diablo 3 was originally released on Mac and PC in 2021. A PS3 and Xbox 360 release followed in 2021.

There are a few catches to be aware of. Firstly, co-op is technically local only, but this can be circumvented using Steam Remote Play Together. Secondly, every player must have their own input; one controller or keyboard per person, no sharing. Finally, progression and unlockables will only be saved to the host player’s save file, so whoever’s looking to unlock stuff should be the one to host the game.


The tracking of quest progress is tied to characters. When a game is started, the host is in charge of which act and quest are currently active for the game, and can pick any that he or she has unlocked for that mode.

However, it is a new age of gaming in which PC and Consoles alike receive frequent updates

I like using Diamond skin Crystal shell + Magic weapon Conduit. You can also try Diamond skin Prism and Magic weapon Deflection. In both variants, one is used as a shield for Squirts and another for resources.


The work Blizzard have put in over the past year to make Diablo 3 a better game is included as a default

Blizzard has dropped a patch for the PS3 version of Diablo III, and it fixes a number of bugs in the game, such as crashes that occur when quitting during a cutscene, or other multiplayer related glitches. It’s nice to see Blizzard taking care of the console version, which many see as superior to the PC game due to the lack of online-only DRM and the removal of an Auction House.

You have effectively duplicated that loot. If you get the Ice Caverns exit out, try again. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS3) Cheats. Victory and Sacrifice (20 points): Complete all quests in Act IV. Kill Diablo in Normal mode. Repeat this process as many times as desired. The console version of Diablo 3 has the same features as the PC version circa Patch 1/0.8. Kill all of them, including their leader Nigel, then talk to the man. I have put together some tips to level as quickly as possible. How to Improve Our Industry (With No Comment Section Wars), Why the XSX Looks the Same (and That's OK), The Positive Side of Streaming (You Might Have Missed). After all, if you want to play on Inferno difficulty, you’re going to need to max out your character as quickly as possible.


I bashed through a few levels last night with the above-named traitor and it works really really well. You can either head off on your own in their game or team up to take on boss fights. The number of enemies is increased and if we hadn’t accidently been on easy level I could imagine those hordes of various enemies would have been a serious mission to take on.

My friends and I loved to hang out in my basement when we were kids. It was a nice basement, had a big TV and an air hockey table. Of course, if my basement was crawling with horrific abominations, it probably would’ve been harder to get everyone down there, but I’m sure I could cajole at least 1-3 bodies down with me, and you can too! Here’s how to play co-op in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.


Diablo 3 Review: A must buy for hardcore fans, but for casual players that is up for discussion

On the Barbarian I was playing, Primary abilities were mapped to the A button, secondary on the right trigger. Defensive abilities were mapped to B while the Might abilities were on X. Tactics were on the Y button, while rage abilities were mapped to the right bumper.

Well nothing, but it does enhance the multiplayer experience. Utilising the Xbox Live (or PSN) service the matchmaking, friends lists and ability to jump in and out of people’s games is very easy indeed.


Diablo III console patch fixes a few issues

No, the 360 and PS3 versions of Diablo 3 do not have an auction house, real or virtual money. As a result, the item drops have been tweaked to be of higher quality overall, so players can self-sustain themselves.

What’s noticeable almost immediately is how little crap drops from the game as you play. Many of the items that would drop and be vendored back at town simply don’t appear. Instead, the game increases the amount of gold that drops around you. If junk items do drop, there’s an option in the inventory to mark them as junk, and the next time you’re in town, they’ll be sold to the vendor. How the game handles loot is also a little odd. Players that play on the same console will share a loot pool: and the arguments about who deserves what items. Players who play online on XBL or PSN get their own loot pool. But what’s handy is that you can mix and match how people join the game: with many from one console meeting individuals on their own machine.

  • Diablo 3: Console was reviewed on Xbox
  • Long story short, I am a “noob” when it comes to Diablo
  • Certainly not enough to keep up with the previous 'Diablo' titles

  • Not really comparable to Diablo 2, that established the genre
  • Gameplay is smoother on console

Obviously without the accuracy of a mouse the game does help you out with the targeting a bit and while this may annoy the purist Diablo fans it really made the experience a ton more fun for myself. It feels a bit like a twin-stick shooter, using one stick, but at no stage do you feel like the game is playing for you.


Also I haven’t played the PC version of Diablo 3 so I cannot make a comparison between the two versions

All games in Diablo 3 can function as a co-op game. Players can join open games through a matchmaking system or join friends' games online. When in a personal game, players can change the network settings to make the game offline, friends-only, invitation-only, or public.

It’s Diablo 3, but somehow a little bit different. On balance, the console version feels more fun to play than the PC version. So I’d love to see some of these changes, particularly the joypad support, morphed into Diablo 3’s PC home eventually.

Only one player can be in the normal game/inventory menus at a time. Other local players cannot continue playing as the menu takes up most of the screen. Local players will have to wait their turn for inventory/skill management. Any players connecting online will receive no interruption of play. If there are no online players, the game will pause when any local player is in a menu. If there are online players, the game will not pause.

Along with several bug fixes applied to the Season Journey, the StarCraft 20th Anniversary pet is now available to players. All players should unlock this item after patching and logging into the game (thanks, Massively).


There are two interesting effects of this. For one, it has a very different feel. Playing the Barbarian on console felt more like an action brawler than an RPG – I was hammering A to bash enemies, then pulling the trigger to whirlwind through groups. Deploying X, Y and B became tactical choices depending on the situation and cooldown. In large packs, I’d throw a hammer to slow down enemies, before leaping in to bash and whirlwind.

Rumor has it Diablo 3 is in the works for Nintendo Switch. The rumor surfaced back in March after what was presumed to be a tease for the port on Twitter. Blizzard said it was just the development team having fun with a Diablo-themed nightlight and nothing more.


Patch 2/1.0 includes a number of new features, such as Legendary Gems, a new upgrade that drops within Greater Rifts and The Vault (two new zones included in the patch). These new gems when paired with amulets and rings unlock unique new abilities, bringing even more diversity to the combat system. A socket can now also be added to weapons that don’t already have one with the introduction of Ramaladni’s Gift. Ramaladni’s Gift is a random item drop and has a one-time use before being consumed when upgrading your weapons.

Yes, if the player wants their character progress to be saved. Players 2-4 can sign in as guests to play online, but their game won't be saved. A Gold account is not required for saving character progress in local or LAN play - a silver account will work for offline purposes.


In local play, item drops are shared. Online players will see their own set of drops. In combo co-op, online players will receive their own drops as usual and local players will continue to have shared drops. Players can freely trade items between each other by dropping an item from their inventories.

Most guardians (except Vesalius) will follow you, so just go to the nearest choke point and let them come to you. Then stand so that you're aiming at the wall and the guardian is between you and the wall, and hold down all your buttons.
