Blizzard Announces ‘Diablo Immortal’ for iOS

Overwatch Hero 29 to be revealed TODAY during Blizzcon 2018 opening ceremony

This is a breaking story, more info to follow. And the social aspect of slaying demons for epic loot. Diablo: Immortal was developed from the ground up as a stand-alone mobile experience.

Apart from updated visuals and animations, Blizzard have upgraded the game with many UI and QoL improvements.

"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 in a statement.

With Senior Game Designer Wyatt Cheng taking the stage, he brought the news that the Diablo franchise would be getting an all new game, Diablo Immortal.

The next Diablo game is not headed to the PC platform, and instead will land on Android and iOS for hack-and-slash fun on the go.

Everything from Warcraft 3's lighting and textures to character models and animations have been completely revamped while retaining the game's cartoonish aesthetic.

For lore nerds, the storyline in Diablo: Immortal takes place between the events of Diablo II and III.

As far as controls go, Blizzard claims that "the transition from mouse-and-keyboard or controller to mobile touchscreen device was created to feel completely natural, intuitive and fun". Players will be able to meet (and kill) characters and creatures from the franchise's history. I played Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon shortly after it was revealed, and it's a lot of fun. Apparently, it will function like an MMORPG.

The announcement of Diablo III Eternal Collection was made with a delightfully-cheesy video in August. Comparisons between the old models and the new show the old units for exactly what they are - artifacts from an older era of gaming. The game is set between Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Diablo 3 and deals with the aftermath of the shattered Worldstone and humanity's fight against it's corrupting power and the evil that would control it. A project like Warcraft III: "Reforged isn't something we undertake lightly, partly because of this legacy, but more importantly, because we know what it means to our players".
