Blizzard just announced a new Diablo game – it is called Diablo Immortal and will be available for Android, iOS, and PC. It will support cross-play and cross-progression, meaning there will be a character that can be played both on mobile and a desktop computer.
The game will be free-to-play and online-only, and according to the Diablo team, it will have new characters, storylines and additional content for a “constantly evolving experience”. Pre-registrations ahead of the June 2 launch are already open, and we’ve provided a link at the end of this article.
The Diablo Immortal is set between Diablo II: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III, and players have to find all the Fragments of the Worldstone – the pieces remaining after the stone was shattered by Tyrael and scattered all over the Sanctuary.
Diablo Immortal will keep some classic fan-favorite characters like Barbarian, Wizard, and Necromancer, as well as the idea of sets of weapons and armor and some unique items. Looting will also offer further customization of the character.
Playing on iOS and Android will be pretty much straightforward – one side of the bottom screen will be for movement, the other for attacks, using potions, magic, etc. However, controls on PC are evolving – moving and attacking with the mouse will remain, but Diablo Immortal will also have WASD movement.
There are also four pre-selected actions with the 1, 2, 3, 4 keys used as a shortcut, and potions will be utilized with the Q key.
