A new Diablo chapter, Diablo Immortal, arriving on Android soon

A new Diablo chapter, Diablo Immortal, arriving on Android soon

The Diablo team took to the stage yesterday at BlizzCon 2018 to answer fan questions, though none were centered on the controversy that the announcement of the mobile-only game has created since Friday. (An iOS version of the game was also announced, though no iOS listing for the game yet exists.) Blizzard did not announce information about the game's pricing structure or release window.

World of Warcraft Classic - What is it? Unlike WoW Classic, however, Virtual Ticket holders will not get to tryout the demo of the game online. Jeff regaled his captive audience with an amusing anecdote about his nephew hating on Moira (how dare he) before amping up the crowd for a new animated short: Reunion.

Beyond Orphea, Blizzard also teased a slew of new content coming to Heroes of the Storm.

It's clear that Blizzard has put a lot of work into making Diablo Immortal, and for a mobile game, it visually looks fantastic. You can play as four diverse races, each with their own units, abilities, and champions from the World of Warcraft universe. No release date or pricing details were named, but the game was playable on the BlizzCon showfloor. The Legendary cycles in Rastakham's Rumble will feature the nine Loa animal gods from troll culture, and the nine class champions who fight on their behalf. Ouch. That said, the game doesn't look bad, and, as much as some don't want to admit it, Diablo is well-suited to mobile gaming.

Andrew is IGN's executive editor of news and wishes we had seen more of Whomper.

If you count yourself among the previously-mentioned fans who have been holding out for word about Warcraft 4, you're still out of luck.

The story in Diablo Immortal focuses on the aftermath of the destruction of the Worldstone in Diablo II with demonic invaders trying to bring back a rule of terror.

Players will be able to choose from six classes (Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Crusader, Demon Hunter, and Necromancer), and each class will have a set of at least 12 skills.
