Raise Some Hell

Ages ago, angels and demons birthed your world in a forbidden union. Now they've come to claim it. Stand tall among Sanctuary's meek and wicked to battle walking corpses, horrifying cultists, fallen seraphs, and the Lords of Hell. When the High Heavens and the Burning Hells war, humanity must be its own salvation.

Unholy Trinity

The Diablo III game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Rise of the Necromancer pack are all part of the Eternal Collection: 7 classes, 5 acts, and seasons' worth of demon-smashing.

Eternal Replayability

Evil is never vanquished forever. Whether you're testing yourself against new difficulty settings, playing through the epic story campaign, searching for the perfect skill combo, expanding your collection of gear, racing through random dungeons, or traveling Sanctuary anew each season, you'll always have a fresh challenge to seek out.

Assemble the Perfect Arsenal

As you charge through Diablo III's five story acts, you'll collect gear from Sanctuary's furthest reaches, including legendary items that change your entire playstyle and armor sets that provide dynamic bonuses as you uncover more pieces.

Your Path to Power

Diablo III's power-building system is flexible enough for an afternoon or a full season. Push back the Burning Hells with spears, storms, and zombie dogs—over 800 unique abilities to unlock and master. Turn fire into lightning, split your magic blasts, and change your skills to create devastating power combinations.

It's Dangerous to Go Alone

Jump into local, action-RPG multiplayer with up to three friends, and crush demons from your comfiest couch cushions, no internet required—or fill out the ranks of your party online. You can play Diablo III shared-screen on a single Nintendo Switch™, remotely on up to four Nintendo Switch ™ consoles, or combine TV and handheld play.

If I had not started on PC and collected so many achievements, level ups and items... I would totally start on console. This game is so flawless and perfectly working over there. A whole new experience with fitting and satisfying controls.

And now you can also play it anywhere you go with the switch. Very exciting.

Too bad I played so much on PC already that I don't want to start over again. Well, I don't even want to play it anymore after all these years of rifting.

The game is quality, and absolutely perfect to be played on the switch. But it feels really gross to be priced at $60 still. It's been over a year since any real new content. I think it's a $30 price point, maybe $40. But when new games like Dead Cells are only $35 for switch I don't think it's worth.

I agree that would be fair to price a porting for less, but I think the reason Blizzard chose to go full-price is to make a statement: "This porting is not of lesser quality than PC version". If you think, the act of remarking such principles is typical of Blizzard.

      There's been a slight update to the new stash space for PC players in Patch 2.6.5. It's going to be gated behind Seasons and you won't be able to purchase it with Gold when the patch goes live.
      Additional stash space coming in Patch 2.6.5 will be gated behind the Season Journey on PC. They've enabled it all for testing purposes on PTR, according to the latest updated patch notes.

      Spin to win is all that matters in this week's Challenge Rift in North America. In Europe, you've got a take on a Legacy of Nightmares set.
