Diablo Immortal, A New RPG, Announced For Mobile At BlizzCon 2018

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

While Diablo Immortal looks like many other mobile action RPGs, it features all of the polish of any Blizzard game, and more importantly, it delves into the untold histories of the Diablo franchise.

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. The Worldstone lies shattered, yet great power remains within its corrupted fragments.

Now, you probably wonder just how social Diablo Immortal will be.

The Diablo Immortal announcement was met with a mixed response that Blizzard likely expected. 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.

Everything is available to you via touchscreen on your phone so all you'll have to do is click on the different abilities to use them. The Chinese company has previously helped to bring a number of Blizzard's games to China. Dropping in and out of groups will be done seamlessly so it sounds like it'll be a true drop-in drop-out kind of game.

U.S. cuts off exports to Chinese chipmaker
Micron officials allege the company, based in Fujian Province, has violated the United States firm's intellectual property rights. The move is likely futile as "such license applications will be reviewed with a presumption of denial", Commerce says.

Diablo Immortal is co-developed by Blizzard Entertainment and NetEase, who in addition to having developed some of the most successful mobile games in history, has been a longtime partner of Blizzard in China.

The Diablo III game, the Reaper of Souls expansion, and the Rise of the Necromancer pack are all part of the Eternal Collection: 7 classes, 5 acts, and seasons' worth of demon-smashing. You can now pre-register for the game on Google Play, but fret not if you're on iOS, it's going there, too.

Many people assumed the teases were for an inevitable Diablo 4 announcement, but Blizzard tried to temper that expectation a couple weeks ago.

Blizzard says the game is "coming soon", although the publisher has yet to confirm a specific release date.
