BlizzCon 2018 is at the peak of its energy level with Blizzard revealing the latest entry into the Diablo series called Diablo Immortal for Android too. This new chapter of the blockbuster Diablo saga takes place between the end of Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and the beginning of Diablo III. Blizzard released a super cinematic trailer with in-game graphics showcasing the basics of the plot, classes, and overall gameplay.
At the end of Diablo II, the Worldstone was broken into pieces by the Archangel Tyrael, but apparently, the fragments still have enough of a funk for nefarious interests to want to use them to bring back Diablo/Al’Diabolos/The Lord of Terror/the bad guy from Diablo II. Leading the invasion of Sanctuary is the demon is known as Skarn, Herald of Terror—Diablo’s most powerful lieutenant—who now rallies a new demonic army. Skarn intends to gather the fragments of the corrupted Worldstone and use them to resurrect Diablo.
Diablo Immortal Gameplay
When it comes to gameplay, we know there will be six classes in total: barbarian, monk, wizard, crusader, demon hunter, and necromancer. Here these iconic and customizable characters are each designed 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. The baddies this time are Skarn along with many of the same enemies from other Diablo games. As it is an MMO you’ll be able to recruit others as you band together to fight.
It appears that up to six people can play together at once, which is more than previous Diablo games. 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. From the peaceful town of Wortham to the ancient Library of Zoltun Kulle to the suffocating jungle island of Bilefen, players will explore familiar vistas and until-now undiscovered corners of Sanctuary.
Diablo Immortals Registration
Diablo Immortal is co-developed by Blizzard Entertainment and NetEase, who in addition to having developed some of the most successful mobile games in history, has been a longtime partner of Blizzard in China. “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.” Diablo started out as a PC game, but Diablo III (originally released in 2012) has made its way onto the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and now Nintendo Switch.
So for Android users, pre-registration is open on the Play Store already, and interested parties are invited to check back in at the Diablo Immortal site as new information is forthcoming. So far, there doesn’t appear to be any release date set. Those eager to join the fight are encouraged to visit their Official Website to pre-register for special rewards.
