Diablo 3 - New PS3 Screenshots, Details

Diablo 3 is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 early in September, with a PS4 version coming sometime later in 2014. The console versions of Diablo 3 features the same kind of gentle snap-on aim assist found when using ranged abilities in most twin-stick shooters. Diablo 3 for console supports up to four players per game in any mix of offline shared-screen, online shared-screen and online remote, or Local Area Network play. 

Another new feature for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Diablo 3 is Nephalem Glory. These are golden orbs that occasionally drop from monsters during combat that temporarily buff all characters in the area. The first rank adds a heal-over-time effect. Another orb grants a damage buff, and higher tiers add chain lightning and explosion to attacks. Picking up health orbs also adds to the effects’ duration. Diablo 3 for console currently has multiple difficulty modes: Easy, Medium, Hard and Master one through five, which roughly equates to Monster Power. As players advance through the Master ranks, monsters will become tougher and more deadly, and the percentage chance for loot to drop will increase.

Diablo 3 is an action-RPG set in the storied Gothic fantasy world of Sanctuary, one beset by the forces of Hell. Players choose from one of five hero classes, and set out on a desperate journey to defeat the demon Lord of Terror, Diablo, and his legions of hellspawn minions.
