Diablo III: Ultimate Edition Game Bonuses Live

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Earlier this week, Xbox One owners of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition received Patch 2.1.0 that added new content and a few bug fixes to the game. To celebrate the release of this patch, Blizzard Entertainment has announced an event that will be lasting for an entire week. The event will add a temporary game buff that will last from now until 12.00 AM PDT on October 17th. Unlike the patch, this event is available on both platforms, although the in-game bonus will differ depending on whether you are playing the Xbox 360 or Xbox One version of the title.

Players of the Xbox One version of the game will encounter double treasure goblins, therefore double the loot. This means that the next seven days will be a perfectly good opportunity to work your way towards this achievement:

Players who, instead, own Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition (Xbox 360) will benefit from a 100% EXP bonus. This bonus will also stack with any bonuses that players may have earned / found from items, shrines, Pools of Reflection and other in-game sources. This means that it is the perfect opportunity to work on these achievements:
