Diablo 3 features for PS3 and PS4 detailed, including direct control over characters

26 February 2013

Among the features for the PS3 and PS4 version of Diablo 3 will be the ability to play the game while offline, something that isn’t possible in the PC version.

You can have four people on the same screen. No split-screen, we just zoom the camera out. Or if you're offline..." said Blizzard’s production director John Hight, before being interrupted by the interviewer.

In the interview, conducted by Gametrailers, Hight also elaborated on some of the new features for console, confirming there will be a new camera for multiplayer, the ability to control the character directly rather than having to click on areas on the environment, and a new “evade” move that allows you to escape quickly from a group of enemies.

Hight also confirmed that the PS3 and PS4 versions will launch with all content from the PC version, up until version 1.07 and Blizzard will continue to support the game throughout its life-cycle.

Diablo 3 was revealed at the PlayStation Meeting last week, where the PS4 was revealed for the first time. A release date has yet to be confirmed, though PS4 is due to launch near the end of 2013.
