Back in 2018, Blizzard and NetEase announced that they were developing a new free-to-play Diablo game called Diablo Immortal, much to the chagrin of fandom. Since then, news on Diablo Immortal has been few and far between. However, during ChinaJoy (China’s biggest video game convention), the developers brought a gameplay trailer that saw an old enemy return.
Those that played Diablo II will remember Baal as the final boss for that game. As this is a gameplay trailer, it’s unclear as to what role Baal will play in the mobile incarnation of Diablo.
The Diablo Immortal gameplay trailer also introduced players to six classes they can play as Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard. None of these classes are new and were playable in Diablo 3.
Blizzard executives spoke of having a beta session for Diablo Immortal in 2020, during a Q4 earning call, but never announced anything concrete. Furthermore, the publisher and developer has yet to announce an exact release date for this free-to-play mobile game.
Stay tuned for more news on Diablo Immortal.
