Diablo is getting a ‘full-fledged’ mobile RPG. The next entry in the Diablo series is a surprising one —a mobile release called Diablo Immortal exclusively for Android and iOS devices. Diablo Immortal is being co-developed by Blizzard and NetEase. According to Blizzard, the game will regularly introduce new characters, storylines, and more as part of a “living, breathing, and constantly evolving experience.”
Blizzard is bringing Diablo to mobile devices, the company announced today during BlizzCon 2018. The game’s creators promised a “full-fledged action RPG” called Diablo Immortal. Diablo Immortal picks up after Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and will launch for iOS and Android.
Releasing at some point next year, Blizzard brings the dungeon-crawling experience to mobile devices. Taking place between the second and third installments of the Diablo series, Diablo Immortal has players facing off against Skarn, Herold of Terror, as he plans to resurrect Diablo using his army of minions.
The mobile RPG is a massively multiplayer online action game; players will be able to drop in and out of groups and play through “dynamic events” as they travel through Sanctuary. Classes include monk, wizard, crusader, demon hunter, necromancer, and barbarian. Blizzard is currently allowing players to pre-register for a chance to join the game’s upcoming beta.
Blizzard has been quiet as of late about the future of Diablo, though job listings discovered earlier this year for an “unannounced Diablo project” suggested that something was on the way. Diablo III launched for PC in 2012, and it rapidly became a best-seller; it was later ported to consoles. The critically acclaimed game launched for the Switch today as a bundle that includes the expansions and other content Blizzard has released over the years.
Player’s who pre-register their interest for the game may be chosen for future beta tests and can earn in-game rewards upon it’s release. Are you going to be picking it up? Let us know in the comments below!
