Blizzard announces Diablo Immortal mobile game

It's not exactly an uplifting motivational storyline as the game focuses on Skarn, Herald of Terror, collecting individual parts of the destroyed Worldstone to try and resurrect Diablo.

Six character classes will be available - Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard - with more planned in future updates. BlizzCon's Diablo Immortal announcement was the last thing most core fans of the franchise wanted.

Titled "Diablo Immortal", the game's background story sets it in the time between its PC counterparts "Diablo II" and "Diablo III". Despite the fact that many fans expected Blizzard to announce PC-related Diablo project (new game or remaster), the USA company unveiled a mobile game - Diablo Immortal. Online play will use a modified version of Blizzard's interface.

"Diablo Immortal is an all-new mobile massively multiplayer online action-role-playing game for iOS and Android".

However, there have been some mixed opinions from fans over Diablo's new iteration, with some fans worrying that the mobile format will mean microtransactions.

The Blizzard Classic line of video games grew one bigger on Friday with the announcement of WarCraft 3: Reforged, a 4K-minded recreation of the RTS classic slated to launch in 2019. We look at other games, we're super passionate about games, and we play all kinds of games. After they wipe out the enemy forces, they're joined by several other characters (the remaining Diablo III classes) as Diablo emerges from a huge cloud of smoke.

Early this morning, Blizzard announced their first game specifically made for mobile, Diablo Immortal.

It's a hard pill for many to swallow as Diablo 3 released in 2012 so fans were expecting the logical next step forward for the franchise to be Diablo 4.

The game won't be coming out for a while, but those at Blizzcon will be able to try out the game on the show floor.

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.
