Diablo Immortal will explore the decades of history between Diablo 2 and 3 "with new stories for beloved characters".

You can pre-register for Diablo Immortal, and by signing up, you'll have a chance of gaining beta access and earning exclusive rewards. In terms of visuals it looks on par if not better than Diablo 3. This will be a full-fledged massively multiplayer online action RPG (MMOARPG) for mobile, and graphically speaking, it will look similar to Diablo III.

Diablo Immortal's storyline will take place between Diablo II and Diablo III. BlizzCon's Diablo Immortal announcement was the last thing most core fans of the franchise wanted.

In their quest to cleanse Sanctuary, players will embark on all manner of thrilling expeditions, including taking part in dynamic events across unique public zones, and hacking and slashing their way through instanced dungeons. After months and months of rumours, speculation, and a bit of expectation dampening from Blizzard itself, Diablo Immortal was officially announced. The Chinese company has previously helped to bring a number of Blizzard's games to China. Players will be able to choose a character from one of six classes: Barbarian, Wizard, Demon Hunter, Monk, Crusader and Necromancer.

Diablo certainly seems like it'll be a tough game to translate from PCs and console to mobile devices due to the number of effects that go on in pretty much every area. It was a blast - the controls are simple and laid out very well, the action feels like classic Diablo, and the level design had a great foreboding feel to it. Diablo's next game, Diablo Immortal, is all about storytelling and teaming up with friends and strangers, all while saving the world from demons that inexplicably drop legendary helmets and gold. There's no Diablo Immortal price yet though given NetEase's expertise in free-to-play games, we won't be surprised to see Diablo Immortal be a free-to-play game with micro-transactions.
