Diablo Immortal will be out on June 2, 2013. As a surprise, Blizzard has added a PC to the list of devices that already had the game. As Blizzard says, Diablo Immortal is the first MMOARPG (massively multiplayer online action role-playing game) Diablo game that lets players socialize, play, and explore the world freely with other players, just like in real life.
In addition, the game will be able to be played on both a mobile device and a computer. This means that you can play the game on both devices and see the player progress on both.
Between the events of Diablo II and Diablo III, Blizzard also said that the game is set at that time. Android and iOS devices will be able to play it, and it will be free to play for Windows PCs when the game goes into Open Beta on June 2.
Some parts of Asia and the Pacific will be able to play Diablo Immortal in the weeks after it comes out, Blizzard says. These countries are Hong Kong, Indonesia, Macao, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Indonesia. People in Vietnam will be able to play on PCs.
In Diablo Immortal, Blizzard says it will be the biggest Diablo game ever made. It will also have “more distinct zones, unique encounters, and more ways to get rid of demons,” the company said. Another thing: It’ll be the first Diablo game made for mobile and the first Diablo MMOARPG game.
It has a Barbarian, a Crusader, a Demon Hunter, a Monk, a Necromancer, and a Wizard as playable characters. They will fight against the Skeleton King, the Haunted Carriage, the Countess, Fahir, Baal, and the Glacial Colossus, among other things.
In the game, there will be eight hellish zones with different styles. Players will have to take on challenges and compete in live events. The game will also get new free content every month. Blizzard also said that Diablo Immortal will be able to be played with a controller on both PC and mobile. It has also talked about the control scheme, menu interfaces, and chat experiences. People who want to be a part of future beta tests, get in-game rewards, and learn more about the game can sign up now.
It comes out on PC, Android, and the iPhone on June 2.
