Blizzard has officially announced Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition for PlayStation 4. This next-gen version of the game is set to release next year and will include both the original game and the upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion.

“Vanquish your foes with the righteous might of the new Crusader class. Rise to new heights of power with an increased level cap, taking your hero to 70 and unlocking new skills (as well as a fourth passive slot) along the way,” the developer writes.

“Befriend Myriam, the Mystic, to customize both the properties and appearance of your equipment. Explore endlessly with Adventure Mode, where all waypoints are unlocked and world itself is your battlefield. Hunt down objectives and complete all-new Bounties for legendary rewards. And don’t forget to prepare for the slew of new monsters lurking behind every shadowy corner, awaiting a chance to rip your hero limb-from-limb!”

Sadly the Ultimate Evil Edition will not support Remote Play with PlayStation Vita, according to senior level designer Matthew Berger. “The Vita is an amazing piece of kit, but the screen is still smaller,” he said. “And when you look at–and also it has its own aspect ratio–and when you look at Diablo III, there’s a lot happening on-screen already. You get surrounded by your enemies, lots of effects flying off in every direction. The inventory can be pretty complicated to navigate sometimes when you have lots of items,” he told GameSpot.

“So it would be a little bit more of stretch. It’s kind of percolating in the back of our mind, but we don’t really have any plans right now.”
