Diablo III (PS4) Playable in PS5

According to the recent list of games not backward-compatible with the PlayStation 5, Diablo III (PS4) is playable. However, the PS3 version isn’t compatible as none of the PS1, PS2 and PS3 games are compatible in PS5.

About 99.7% of the PS4 games are backward-compatible with the PS5 via the “Game Boost” feature which forces PS4 games to run at faster or smoother framerates.

If you plan to play your Diablo III (PS4) CD, you will need to buy the PlayStation 5 with a disc drive. Therefore, not compatible with the PS5 Digital Edition.

There is a workaround for those who decide to purchase the PS5 Digital Edition:

Transfer digital games from a PS4 console to a PS5 console

  • You can transfer digital games and saved data from a PS4 console to a PS5 console using WiFi data transfer. 
  • You can access PS4 games on a PS5 console directly from a PS5 extended storage drive.

The PlayStation 5 will be available in November 12th.

More Diablo Immortal Job Openings (Oct 2020)

A new job opening that appeared in my notifications made me visit the Blizzard Careers page to search for Diablo Immortal jobs.

Last time I took a screenshot of the Diablo Immortal jobs page was August 29. I compared it against the present page, and noticed some of the jobs listed back in August are gone, and more job openings have been listed since then.

Diablo 4 Quarterly Update: Sept 2020

Blizzard Entertainment published today the Diablo 4 Quarterly Update with some juicy details. Something to note is that the images are tagged as Pre-Alpha.

So we can assume the game is played only by the Diablo 4 team at this point. Not company-wide, yet. Still the UI looks pretty good this early.

Tip: To view full size images below, hold the mouse’s right-button on the image and open the image in a new tab.

Diablo Immortal Company Playtest Updated Sept 21, 2020

This marks the fourth Diablo Immortal Company Playtest build update since Aug 24 — pushed into the Google Play Diablo Immortal webpage. So far there has been the following updates:

  • Aug 24
  • Aug 26
  • Sept 14
  • Sept 21

There is something in common about these dates. All of them fall on a Monday — except the 26th, which could have been an emergency bug fix.
