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

Blizzard has hinted at this several times, but concluding your big opening ceremony with a Diablo mobile game seems like a misstep to us.

Diablo Immortal is a mobile Massively Multiplayer Online Action RPG (MMOARPG) developed by Blizzard Entertainment in partnership with NetEase, coming exclusively to Android, iPhone and iPad. 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.

Described as a "full-fledged action RPG you can play everywhere with everyone", It's now being developed in collaboration with NetEase.

If you're interested in pre-registering for Diablo: Immortal you can do so here. Nintendo typically unviels amiibo figures through its official channels first, but exceptions may have been made for Blizzard.

Familiar character classes like the Barbarian, Necromancer, Demon Hunter, Wizard, Crusader, and my boy the Monk return for loot-earning heroics.

The game takes place in-between Diablo II and Diablo III and attempts to fill in the gaps in regards to Tyrael (everyone's favorite angel).

It's an interesting and ambitious take on the franchise, but fan reaction is already mixed. One audience member asked if it was an "out of season April Fool's joke".

Thanks to Destructoid, we have a clear image of what the upcoming Treasure Goblin amiibo could possibly look like for Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Nintendo Switch.

The Diablo Immortal announcement was met with a mixed response that Blizzard likely expected. The team says it will be available "when it's ready". Blizzard has been teasing a Diablo-related reveal for BlizzCon ever since the convention was announced. Created to be a living, breathing, and constantly evolving experience, Diablo Immortal will regularly introduce new storylines, new playable character classes, new loot, and all-new challenges-which you can face side-by-side with your friends. or foolishly choose to confront on your own.
