Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition to ship with patch 2.0.5

Posted on July 7, 2014 AT 04:42am

Blizzard has confirmed that the Ultimate Evil Edition of Diablo III will launch will all big fixes and features included in the PC version up to patch 2.0.5, and that it is still unsure of the extent of post-launch support that the game will receive.

Community manager “Grimiku” stated on the official forums that the game will ship with patch 2.0.5, but there will more than likely be a day one patch to take the game up to 2.0.6. However, beyond this the developer is unsure of how it will support the game.

“We’re still working out all the details regarding if and how Ultimate Evil Edition will be supported post-launch (e.g. will we patch the game after it ships? if yes, should we only patch to fix bugs and address critical game issues, or should we patch in new content as well? at what frequency should we patch?), so we don’t have an answer for you right now. That said, I can confirm that UEE will ship on all platforms with all updates included up to patch 2.0.5, and that there will likely be a “Day 1” patch to add in patch 2.0.6 content, too.

“As we move closer to ship and finalize our post-launch patching plans, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. Great question, though!”

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition is set to launch August 19 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
