Always on DRM is becoming a common practice for most PC games and consumers widely agree that when Diablo III required a constant online connection to be played, things were getting pretty ridiculous at this point. However with the game making the trip to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, will that feature remain active?
Doesn’t look like it. In an interview with GameTrailers, Sony’s John Hight stated that “You can have four people on the same screen. No split-screen, we just zoom the camera out. Or, you know, if you’re offline…” This means that gamers will at least be able to play local multiplayer on Diablo III without connecting to the internet and will likely even be able to play the single player without being online, because it’s an amazing world we live in.
