'Diablo Immortal' brings Blizzard's action RPG to iOS and Android

Diablo Immortal is the mobile Diablo game nobody asked for

Blizzard's Loot Goblin amiibo Will Hoard Treasure For You This December

Fans were so persuaded that Diablo 4 would be making an appearance that Blizzard went out of its way to inform fans that there would be no Diablo 4 at BlizzCon 2018.

Diablo Immortal will feature six playable character classes that most people will be familiar with: Barbarian, Wizard, Monk, Necromancer, Demon Hunter, and Crusader.

Following the destruction of the Worldstone, Diablo's lieutenant Skarn, Herald of Terror, is building a new demonic. A lot of this ends up being a little spoiled as this does take place between two games we already know a lot about.


The Diablo amiibo will work with Diablo III: Eternal Collection. Slay endless hordes of demons as effortlessly as you would with a controller or keyboard and mouse. Blizzard claims that Diablo Immortal will be not only a true action RPG, but an in-depth online multiplayer experience.

Since Diablo originated on battle.net Diablo: Immortal will have battle.net integration. Reveal footage of the game confirmed a pretty busy interface of touchscreen buttons that mobile players will use to manage abilities and items. We can kind of consider Diablo Immortal as something like World of Diablo but with all of Diablo 3's classes (minus the Witch Doctor) and played from an isometric viewpoint.

We'll be bringing you any and all news from the show. Each class will have a unique selection of 12 or more different skills to choose from.


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.

Speaking with IGN at BlizzCon, Blizzard's Wyatt Cheng responded to the community reaction to Diablo: Immortal's announcement, as well as the accusations that it's just a reskin of a previous NetEase mobile game. You can now pre-register for the game on Google Play, but fret not if you're on iOS, it's going there, too.
