Diablo Immortal, A New RPG, Announced For Mobile At BlizzCon 2018

Blizzard has said many Diablo games were in the works but they would not be ready to announce all of them for BlizzCon.

There are more details on the game's website as well as the Activision press release, including the six character classes players will choose from; Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer and Wizard. The game will introduce new abilities, new zones, and new dungeons.

Diablo Immortal's storyline will take place between Diablo II and Diablo III. Same goes for the gameplay trailer below, showing the basic mobile controls and UI on top of what looks like a rehash of Diablo 3. After months and months of rumours, speculation, and a bit of expectation dampening from Blizzard itself, Diablo Immortal was officially announced. The partnership with NetEase is another indication that Diablo Immortal may not have been targeted at NA/EU. Visit vast social hubs like Westmarch and conduct business with local merchants before setting off on your next adventure.

If you stuck around to the end of BlizzCon's opening ceremonies you were probably waiting for a big announcement regarding the future of the Diablo franchise. There was no announcement of a Diablo 2 or Diablo remaster.

The developers made it clear this was a full-fledged game and they are committed to bringing the Diablo experience to mobile devices. That interface, seen above, may look bonkers to Diablo's PC faithful, but it looks somewhat reserved compared to mega-popular mobile games like PUBG and Fortnite. Today is also the day that you can pick up the GameStop exclusive Diablo III: Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch bundle for $359.99 with free shipping.

Diablo Immortal is "coming soon" to iOS and Android devices.
