Action role-playing hack and slash game "Diablo" has set its eyes on invading the mobile gaming platform for Android and iOS.
If you're wondering how the gameplay on a touchscreen will be, don't worry.
For lore nerds, the storyline in Diablo: Immortal takes place between the events of Diablo II and III.
From the peaceful town of Wortham, to the jungle island of Bilefen and the ancient Library of Zoltun Kulle, each zone in Diablo Immortal has new challenges to master and familiar faces to see.
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".
Spotify to launch standalone app for Apple Watch, beta version being tested
Shares in the Swedish-based music group slid 5.7 percent to close at $141.16 after the company's 3rd quarter earnings report. Jeff Wlodarczak of Pivotal Research said he remained positive on Spotify despite the "modest reduction" in the outlook.
Six iconic and highly customizable Diablo character classes will be available in Diablo Immortal-Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard-each with new powers and abilities, with more playable classes planned for future updates.
Drop in or out of groups easily and engage in dynamic events all over the world, teaming up with other heroes as you take down Skarn's minions-and reap powerful rewards.
Unsurprisingly, fan response to Diablo Immortal has been...just a bit harsh. The result will likely be a mobile MMORPG that has insane incentives for making in-game purchases, along with a story that fits between Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III on the timeline. Each class will have a unique selection of 12 or more different skills to choose from.
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. Blizzard has not yet announced a release date for the title.
"Warcraft 3 is monumentally important to us here at Blizzard, and its influence is evident in everything we've done since", said J. Allen Brack, President of Blizzard Entertainment in a prepared statement.
Pre-registration for Diablo Immortal is now open on the Google Play Store.
