Dark fantasy quests and Cold War operations join together in a massive week of gaming, with tons of new games joining the PlayStation family this Tuesday.
Malthael, the Angel of Death, has invaded the world of Sanctuary in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 and PS3. Wade into battle with the new Crusader class, and tackle Act V in one of the most iconic action RPGs in gaming history. Uncover legendary loot, unlock powerful spells, equip awe-inspiring weaponry, and horde mountains of gold in Blizzard’s latest chapter in the Diablo series. And for those that already began a quest on the original Diablo III on PS3, carry over hero progress into Reaper of Souls without missing a step.
But that’s just the beginning. Keep the world’s super powers at bay in Counterspy — a stylized action game set in the Cold War — on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Infiltrate enemy positions, use wit and cunning, and keep the governments of the world from tearing each other to pieces.
