Blizzard Entertainment just dropped a huge announcement today and it is the release date for the upcoming free-to-play video game for mobile, Diablo Immortal. It will be accessible on both iOS and Android and the company also revealed that it will be available for open beta testing for PC on the same day.
The announcement was made by Blizzard Entertainment where they introduce Diablo Immortal as the biggest Diablo game that they released when it comes to encounters, zones, and the likes. Diablo Immortal is also the very first game under the Diablo game franchise to be available on mobile devices which means that the PC version will have to adjust to where the game is originally crafted for.
The controls of the mobile game with the taps and swipes are translated into mouse and keyboard controls when on PC. It is worth-noting that the PC version of Diablo Immortal has an option to use the WASD movement, W and S goes forward and backward while A and D is for left and right, which is not available for previous Diablo titles.
In the same announcement, Blizzard stated that they want to reach as many players for Diablo as possible which is why they ensured that the mobile game will also have its PC version, where the original players of Diablo are from.
Diablo Immortal is set between Diablo II and Diablo III where the battles versus ancient evils await in the untold story chapter in the game franchise. When Archangel Tyrael was presumed by everyone to be dead, the people had to deal with the effects of his actions and the land is still tainted by the power left on the remains of the shattered Worldstone. Diablo’s followers try to use such power for the return of the Lord of Terror.
The classes available to Diablo Immortal are the following: Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard. They would encounter these new horrors: the Skeleton King, Haunted Carriage, Countess, Fahir, Baal, and Glacial Colossus.
Diablo Immortal will be available on June 2, 2022 for mobile and PC. Pre-registration is ongoing.
