The big Diablo announcement for BlizzCon wasn't the long-awaited Diablo 4 reveal, seems we have to wait a bit longer for that - but instead a brand-new game called Diablo Immortal. "A mobile massively multiplayer online action–role-playing game for Android and iOS devices" that is set between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3.
Which admittedly looks really good in action thanks to the pair of trailers we got, one cinematic and one showing gameplay. The trailers also confirm that Diablo Immortal is a joint development project between Blizzard and NetEase.
Here's the cinematic.
And here's the fast-paced gameplay, which is reminiscent of Diablo 3 in quite a few ways.
Six classes have been confirmed so far - Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard. And the world itself is said to be one that will evolve and change over time. It definitely sounds interesting and the multiplayer side will feature public zones in addition to instanced dungeons for groups alongside a full story and crafting, leveling, and looting in classic Diablo style.
“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. “With their incredible passion for Diablo and proven mobile expertise, the development team has spawned an ultra-responsive and breathtakingly beautiful mobile game, and we can’t wait for players to get their hands on it.”
We'll have more on Diablo Immortal as we go hands-on with the game at BlizzCon and speak to Blizzard about this new direction. Plus, sneak in the usual "Diablo 4?" question.
