Blizzard announces new Diablo for mobile and fans are not happy

Blizzard announces new Diablo for mobile and fans are not happy

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.

Diablo Immortal will allow players to play six classes familiar to Diablo players: Crusader, Necromancer, Demon Hunter, Barbarian, Wizard, and Monk.

Fans might find comfort in the fact that Diablo Immortal is being handled by mobile specialists at NetEase, rather than one of Blizzard's main teams. We love Diablo, and for us we're the most concerned with making excellent games. And Blizzard intends to update the game in other ways: "Diablo Immortal will regularly introduce new storylines, new playable character classes, new loot, and all-new challenges".

On Battle.net, Destiny 2 is a "Free Gift" from today until November 18, and anyone who redeems it during that period will get to keep it forever.

To close the show, Blizzard revealed a brand new Diablo action RPG. 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 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.

Over 62 missions will be available to play in the game that spans the continents. Yeah, but they would say it wasn't Diablo 4 even if it was going to be Diablo 4, wouldn't they?

Blizzard has said that the game's netcode will be restructured, bringing it up to the standards of "modern matchmaking".

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".

Action role-playing hack and slash game "Diablo" has set its eyes on invading the mobile gaming platform for Android and iOS.

This is bound to come as a bit of a disappointment to anyone who was expecting Diablo 4 proper - but new Diablo content with the classic isometric gameplay is nothing to sneeze at.
