It has been twenty years since the demonic invasion was thwarted and the Worldstone destroyed, and Sanctuary has enjoyed relative peace and stability. However, hellish forces are stirring again. All over the world are reports of horrors and atrocities, and a fallen star landing in Tristram marks the beginning of the prophesied End Times.

''Diablo III'' is the latest in the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series, released on May 15, 2012. The gameplay is essentially the same as previous entries, but with more AntiFrustrationFeatures (such as gold being picked up on touch rather than having to be clicked), and with new trading aspects, including an auction house that was eventually removed for causing more problems than it solved.. It also brings back the Barbarian character class[[note]]but not the same Barbarian from ''VideoGame/DiabloII''[[/note]], and introduces four new classes: Monk, Witch Doctor, Wizard, and Demon Hunter.

A console version for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}} was released on September 3rd, 2013 with UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox One}} versions (including the Reaper of Souls expansion) following in 2014. The console versions allow offline play, don't have any Battle.net functionality (instead using the console platforms' online services.)

The game was given an ExpansionPack, ''[[http://us.battle.net/d3/en/reaper-of-souls/ Reaper of Souls]]'', in March 2014. It introduced a new act, a new class (the Crusader), a new level cap, powers and more, and answered one of the biggest lingering questions about the storyline, namely what happened to the missing angel Malthael. The console version of ''Reaper of Souls'' was released as part of the Ultimate Evil Edition, which includes the original game, on August 19 2014 on UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}, UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, UsefulNotes/XboxOne and UsefulNotes/PlayStation4.

The second expansion pack, ''Rise of the Necromancer'', was released on June 27, 2017. It introduces a new class, the Necromancer.
