Yes, we all but knew it would happen, but it still stings a bit. BlizzCon saw the announcement of a new Diablo title, but it’s one built exclusively for mobile devices. It closed the BlizzCon opening ceremony, and while a new mobile title isn’t exactly a bad thing, in the absence of a Diablo 2 remaster or Diablo 4, it’s gonna be a tough sell for fans.
Diablo Immortal the game explores 20 years of untold stories between Diablo 2 and Diablo 3, including explores what Deckard Cain was up to in that time, along with other questions about the lore in that time frame.
The gameplay footage should all look pretty familiar to Diablo 3 players. There are six classes ranging from Barbarians to Necromancers, though there are new abilities, as well as new zones, stories, and dungeons. We’re promised “authentic Diablo gameplay at your fingertips” – though on mobile, it’s not quite so authentic as old-school Diablo fans might’ve hoped.
BlizzCon 2018 is upon us, and the announcements are rolling in. We’ll bring you the biggest stories as they happen throughout the opening ceremony, and you can stick with us throughout the weekend for further details on everything Blizzard has showcased – from Diablo and Overwatch to World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and whatever’s new from the venerable studio.
