Blizzard Announces Diablo Immortal; A Diablo Mobile RPG

It appears that up to six people can play together at once, which is more than previous Diablo games (up to four).

Well guess what, you entitled crybabies.

Blizzard kicked off BlizzCon 2018 with a packed Opening Ceremony, showing off brand new characters, expansions, cinematics, and more.

As for mobile gameplay, Blizzard says it developed the touchscreen experience to "feel completely natural", including directional controls, simple skill activation, and a native Battle.net UI.

Diablo Immortal is a game set after the events of Diablo II: Lord of destruction and before the events of Diablo 3, although it looks like an oversimplified version of Diablo 3. Yes, but I won't dismiss Diablo Immortal out of hand.

Mobile games are incredibly lucrative when done correctly and that was likely part of the inspiration to move Diablo to a mobile platform.

Diablo Immortal does not have a release date.

The announcement featured a sizzle reel of gameplay footage, and though the footage was labelled a work in progress, it was pretty astonishing.

Diablo: Immortal - which Blizzard is co-developing with NetEase - is no mere port of any previous Diablo PC or console game.

If you count yourself among the previously-mentioned fans who have been holding out for word about Warcraft 4, you're still out of luck.

With Diablo Immortal, every class gets new abilities that we haven't seen before.

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".

You are entitled to nothing.

Speaking with Polygon, Adham further explained the company's focus on this game for the mobile market: "The world is evolving both geographically and demographically", he said. You don't just get to have whatever you want and then throw a tantrum when your own personal dreams don't come true.

There's a special Warcraft 3: Reforged Spoils Of War Edition, available for preorder now at the game's official site, which unlocks special rewards across most other Blizzard games while we wait for the remaster to drop. The reimagining is called Warcraft III: Reforged and will be made from the ground up including a visual overhaul, the addition of contemporary social and matchmaking features and an upgraded World Editor.
