Just in case you missed the announcement, or choose not to acknowledge it, Diablo 3 is coming to PS4 and PS3. PC gamers are not too happy about the announcement since it doesn’t include an online connection to play, while console players not familiar with the series are excited on how its going to turn out. Well, here’s some gameplay footage showing how the console version in action.

If you noticed, the first bit of footage shows a Barbarian rolling, this is a new feature for the console version to give a bit more control when it gets messy. The video shows the new UI which doesn’t seems right to me, especially how you switch gear.

The feature that will pretty much be a big selling point is the fact that the console version will not include an online connection to play. A simple feature stripped from PC players last year, owners of the console version will be allowed to play the game online or offline. You can also play the game locally without splitscreen. Playing locally with a player online is also possible.

Diablo 3 will be available for the PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. No release date was given yet.
