Diablo Immortal is Blizzard's new online action-RPG for mobile

Diablo Immortal is Blizzard's new online action-RPG for mobile

BlizzCon 2018 attendees are reacting to Diablo's new mobile game announcement very poorly with blatantly disrespectful questions at the developer session.

Players will be able to choose from six classes (Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Crusader, Demon Hunter, and Necromancer), and each class will have a set of at least 12 skills. Whether you're testing yourself against new difficulty settings, playing through the epic story campaign, searching for the flawless skill combo, expanding your collection of gear, racing through random dungeons, or traveling Sanctuary anew each season, you'll always have a fresh challenge to seek out. The game will take place somewhere in the 20-year span between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3, and will revisit some of those games' locations. On its site, Blizzard says Diablo Immortal will let players explore Sanctuary "in a persistent, always-online adventure anywhere, anytime". The partnership with NetEase is another indication that Diablo Immortal may not have been targeted at NA/EU.

At the time of writing, the official gameplay trailer, which we've embedded above, is sitting at 45,000 views. But they prepared wrong, and instead saw Diablo Immortal. One audience member asked if it was an "out of season April Fool's joke".

"Mobile technology today supports the kinds of AAA gaming experiences Blizzard is known for", Cheng said of the decision to bring Diablo to mobile.




It's a hard pill for many fans to swallow as Diablo 3 released all the way back in 2012.

Now, you'd think that Diablo would fit the mobile platform perfectly right?
