Adjust Comment Print

Blizzard's previous promises of "multiple Diablo projects" bore fruit during the keynote with the announcement of Diablo Immortal, a "full-fledged action-RPG you can play everywhere with everyone". It features six customizable classes (Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer and Wizard) with more planned for the future.

Set during the twenty years between Diablo II and Diablo III, Diablo Immortal will tell stories about Tyrael, Deckard Cain, and other familiar franchise characters. BlizzCon's Diablo Immortal announcement was the last thing most core fans of the franchise wanted.

At the time of writing, the official gameplay trailer, which we've embedded above, is sitting at 45,000 views. Skarn intends to gather the fragments of the corrupted Worldstone and use them to resurrect Diablo. The partnership with NetEase is another indication that Diablo Immortal may not have been targeted at NA/EU.

In their quest to cleanse Sanctuary, players will embark on all manner of thrilling expeditions, including taking part in dynamic events across unique public zones, and hacking and slashing their way through instanced dungeons. One fan asked if this announcement was an "out of season April Fool's joke".

It's not. The team says the game is only coming to iOS and Android for now, and it's doubling down on the choice to keep this game mobile.

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

Diablo Immortal does not have a release date.

Diablo on mobile is going to be a risky prospect for some of us. The talk focused on games across Blizzard Entertainment's portfolio-along with a huge freebie from its corporate siblings at Bungie.
