Diablo Immortal: What We Know So Far on the Upcoming ARPG

Diablo Immortal is an upcoming action role-playing hack'n'slash MMORPG game in the Diablo series for mobile devices, and I can't wait.

Diablo Immortal will take place in between the events of Diablo 2 and 3 after the Worldstone was destroyed. You'll see notable characters like Tyrael, Malthael, Leah, and Deckard Cain as well as Valla and Josen. The game will have a set of characters to obtain quests from which will shift as the game receives updates.

You'll be able to play six different classes from the classic top-down perspective. There's the Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Necromancer, Crusader, Wizard, and Monk. They have dropped the Witch Doctor class.

The demon is known as Skarn, Herald of Terror— once Diablo's most powerful lieutenant— is rallying a new demonic army. Skarn intends to gather the fragments of the corrupted Worldstone and use them to resurrect Diablo, reigniting the Eternal Conflict between angels and demons.

Several choice demons from Diablo II, like the sickening beasts known as Vile Mothers— complete with their razor-sharp claws and deadly spawn— and many other familiar and all-new enemies will come to life in Diablo Immortal.

Diablo Immortal is being designed from the ground up to give you an authentic Diablo experience on touch-screen devices. Intuitive actions, gestures and touch controls put you in full command of your hero. Slay endless hordes of demons as effortlessly as you would with a controller or keyboard and mouse.

The move from PC to console to mobile phone has been a controversial one and already seems to be dividing the game's hardcore fanbase. Critics are accusing the game of reducing the Diablo franchise to another pay-to-win click-the-machine and that it is simply a reskin of the Chinese co-developers, NetEase, previous mobile ARPG titles.
