Blizzard Entertainment has announced today the Diablo Immortal release date for PC and mobile.
Diablo Immortal Release Date
Fans of the Diablo franchise will be able to play the latest iteration, Diablo Immortal, on PC, Android, and iOS in a few months. According to Blizzard Entertainment, the Diablo Immortal release date is June 2, 2022 and in most regions across the world. This is the first game designed from the ground up for mobile. The remaining regions in Asia-Pacific will be able to gain access a few weeks later.
Play the Game on PC via Open Beta
Aside from the offering of uncompromised AAA experience on mobile, this ambitious game will enter into Open Beta on Windows PC at launch. Diablo Immortal will support both cross-play and cross-progression, which will allow players to join the fight regardless of platform and can seamlessly transition between mobile and PC gameplay. The Open Beta on PC will have all game features including cross-play and cross-progression. All progress will be maintained after concluding the test as well.
“The demons of the Burning Hells are ready to be slain in the most expansive Diablo game that Blizzard has ever released,” said Mike Ybarra, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “As Blizzard’s first game designed from the ground up for mobile, it was important to us to deliver an experience worthy of the franchise, so we did a lot of testing, incorporated a lot of feedback, and created a game that we’re very excited to share with players. We’re looking forward to unleashing this epic new entry in the Diablo franchise, and we can’t wait to join everyone in Sanctuary.”
Choose Between Six Classes
Players will be able to choose from six iconic Diablo classes which are Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Necromancer, and Wizard. Travel through eight unique zones and the great city of Westmarch, and meet new and familiar characters like Deckard Cain. Join in the quest to hunt down the shattered pieces of the corrupted Worldstone before the forces of Burning Hells can gather them for their own evil plans. The game will take place in between Diablo II and Diablo III.
Play with MMOARPG Elements
Diablo Immortal will feature a MMOARPG social experience that is completely new to the series. Players will share a massive world with others as they explore Sanctuary. They can form Warbands with up to eight members to take on group challenges to fight raid bosses and join Clans with up to 150 friends to earn challenging Clan Achievements.
Diablo Immortal PvP System is Robust
The game will offer a robust faction-based PvP system. The Cycle of Strife feature will allow players to band together to fight in an ongoing war in which the top player of the server will earn the Eternal Crown to become the leader of the Immortals. This will put them in the position of continuously defending their reign across various modes including 1v30 showdowns.
Diablo Immortal Will be Free-To-Play
Diablo Immortal will be free-to-play with options to buy in-game benefits. The game launches on June 2, 2022 for iOS, Android, and Windows PC via Battle.net.
