Blizzard announces Diablo Immortal for mobile devices, opens pre-registration

Enlarge / Diablo Immortal's control scheme on smartphone. Players will travel places like the haunted temples of Bilefen, the Forgotten Tower, as well as the game's capital city of Westmarch. If you want an idea of how fans of the franchise are taking this just go and check out the ratio of likes to dislikes on the gameplay trailer and the announcement trailer.

The story in Diablo Immortal focuses on the aftermath of the destruction of the Worldstone in Diablo II with demonic invaders trying to bring back a rule of terror. Blizzard issued a rather large patch to the classic real-time strategy game. His goal is to gather the fragments of the corrupted Worldstone and use them to resurrect Diablo. If you meet a friend in that overworld, you'll be able to invite them to an instanced dungeon for a more traditional Diablo experience. These six classes were the only ones that were shown off at BlizzCon.

Cheng notes that this new entry in the "Diablo" universe will be a "full-fledged action RPG".

Diablo Immortal provides players with access to the following character classes: Wizard, Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Crusader, Monk, and Necromancer. Dropping in and out of groups will be done seamlessly so it sounds like it'll be a true drop-in drop-out kind of game.




In other Warcraft 3 news, Blizzard has also announced that the package will contain 62 missions across Kalimdor, Lordaeron, Northrend, and beyond. "Immortal will feel familiar and intuitive to both today's mobile gaming audience and those who played Diablo on console". It may not be the Diablo fans were expecting, but could potentially keep fans entertained until Diablo 4's eventual release.

"Diablo Immortal takes the series' dark, gothic fantasy world of Sanctuary and inimitable Diablo gameplay, and puts it in your pocket", said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. The game's launch date wasn't provided.
