Diablo Immortal for Android and iOS was Declared at BlizzCon 2018.It takes the activity role-playing franchise to smaller screens for the first time. Diablo Immortal has been developed by Blizzard in cooperation with NetEasethe studio behind PUBG clone Rules of Survival. Concerning string lore, it takes place between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3. While Diablo Immortal is the series’ mobile introduction, Principal Design Chief Wyatt Cheng confirmed through a presentation for the game that it will not be coming to PC anytime soon.
That said, it is improbable that the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch will find the game . Traditionally, NetEase has remained away from PC and console development. No Diablo Immortal launch date has been revealed just yet, though Blizzard claims it’d be coming’soon’ having an upcoming beta test on the way.
Gameplay for Diablo Immortal seems familiar to Arena of Valor by Means of virtual buttons. There is no Diablo Immortal cost yet though given NetEase’s experience in free-to-play games, we will not be surprised to see Diablo Immortal be a free-to-play game with micro-transactions.
Interestingly, it appears that Diablo Immortal focusses on player selection and touts drop-in, drop-out game play. Familiar classes like the monk, demon hunter, and necromancer exist from the game’s trailer. Diablo’s mobile advent comes as no surprise considering the Nintendo Switch is able to run Diablo 3 just fine, and it was something we speculated at length during our latest installment of Transition – Gadgets 360’s gaming and pop culture .
