Diablo Immortal brings Diablo universe to mobile

Nichole VegaNov 03, 2018

Diablo Immortal is being designed from the ground-up to give you an authentic Diablo experience on touch-screen devices.

The game was unveiled as the closing segment of BlizzCon 2018's opening ceremonies and it will show players just what happened between the events of Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 3. Visit vast social hubs like Westmarch and conduct business with local merchants before setting off on your next adventure.

For lore nerds, the storyline in Diablo: Immortal takes place between the events of Diablo II and III. We can't wait to try out the new content and games that were revealed this year - particularly Overwatch's Ashe, who needs to get here ASAP. This is the first time Diablo fans will get to play within the universe using an Android or iOS mobile device, marking a big turn for the popular video game series. We can kind of consider Diablo Immortal as something like World of Diablo but with all of Diablo 3's classes (minus the Witch Doctor) and played from an isometric viewpoint. They are also making balance changes to heroes, units, and buildings in order to take Warcraft III's gameplay into the modern age. The partnership with NetEase is another indication that Diablo Immortal may not have been targeted at NA/EU. Today, the developer announced its second-ever mobile game (after the collectible card RPG Hearthstone) with Diablo: Immortal. From those skills, you'll be able to choose five which will be assigned to an active skill button. Players will be able to team up with others in open area locales, but the game will also feature more than a few instanced dungeons.

It's a hard pill for many to swallow as Diablo 3 released in 2012 so fans were expecting the logical next step forward for the franchise to be Diablo 4.

"Warcraft III is monumentally important to us here at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in everything we've done since, ' said J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment".

Warcraft 3: Reforged is set to release next year, and Blizzard has more info on it here.
