In this new behind the scenes video, Blizzard’s production director John Hight, lead designer Joshua Mosqueira and senior designer Jason Bender explain the process of bringing Diablo III to Sony’s PS3 and next-generation PlayStation 4.
Blizzard is designing an all-new user interface, including an intuitive control scheme and a new dynamic camera perspective, that will make questing and combat in the world of Sanctuary feel like second nature on PlayStation platforms. Players will be able to battle their way through the story in single-player mode and also experience the hack-and-slash joy of destroying demons and collecting loot together with their friends via seamless four-player online and local co-op modes.
“Diablo III looks and plays great on the PlayStation,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We put a lot of care and thought into the PlayStation version to make sure it would deliver an authentic Diablogaming experience, and we’re really pleased with the results.”
Diablo III is expected to release for the PS3 later this year.
