In addition to support for four-player local co-op, and mechanics that will allow players to import their last-gen characters into its current-gen versions, the Diablo III: Ultimate Edition will also feature:
- The Reaper of Souls expansion
- A free-roam Adventure mode
- A level cap that goes up to 70
- The Crusader and Mystic classes
- Randomized bounties
- Nephalem rifts to plunder
Those who act now, and pre-order the game before its release date, will also gain access to the Infernal Pauldrons – a piece of armour, which boosts characters’ vitality, as well as their life-per-second and cooldown rates.
