Blizzard Entertainment have announced that their first major update for the console version of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition is now live.
Straight from Blizzard HQ, the update adds the following…
Whenever Treasure Goblins are defeated, there’s now a chance they will spawn a new type of portal through which players can enter.
Legendary Gems are a new type of gem that can drop in Greater Rifts and The Vault and will offer powerful abilities when socketed into Rings and Amulets.
Greater Rifts are a special type of timed Nephalem Rift. Upon completing a Greater Rift, players will be able to choose between one of two rewards: a chance to upgrade their Legendary Gems or (if they complete the Greater Rift level within its allotted time) the opportunity to move on to the next Greater Rift level.
Ramalandni’s Gift is a new Legendary item that will allow players to add a socket to any weapon that does not already have one.
When adventuring in Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts, players will have a chance to encounter a new randomised environment: The Cesspools.
There’s more on the official website, too.
Mick was suitably impressed with the console edition of Diablo 3 when it launched, what with its fancy bells and whistles (new camera angles), so it’s nice to see Blizzard supporting the release on all formats.
