Diablo Immortal is an MMO ARPG described as a game that can be played by anyone, anywhere they please.

With so many projects in the works, from a Nintendo Switch version of Diablo 3 to a rumoured animated television series by Netflix, it's hard not to get excited at what Blizzard has in store for fans of the series.

Near the end of the opening ceremony for Blizzard's annual BlizzCon convention Friday, the company announced that the next game in the series would debut on a completely new platform: mobile devices. Diablo Immortal will pit players against Diablo's older brother Bael as they journey across various locales, including the classic Frozen Tundra and the new jungle island Bilefen.

At launch the title will feature nine outdoor zones which sounds like Blizzard will continue supporting this game after launch, possibly indicating DLC down the road.

Diablo Immortal's storyline will take place between Diablo II and Diablo III. If you want an idea of how fans of the franchise are taking this just go and check out the ratio of likes to dislikes on the gameplay trailer and the announcement trailer.

Diablo Immortal is co-developed by Blizzard and NetEase, and promises a smooth transition from mouse and keyboard to touchscreens. That interface, seen above, may look bonkers to Diablo's PC faithful, but it looks somewhat reserved compared to mega-popular mobile games like PUBG and Fortnite.

Blizzard announced one of its new Diablo games at Blizzcon 2018, but it wasn't the big sequel some people wanted.

The game will feature six distinct classes just like that in the Diablo trilogy which are monk, wizard, crusader, demon hunter, necromancer and barbarian.

The devs are re-balancing a ton of heroes, units and more to ensure it plays like a "modern game", and multiplayer will be hosted via the modern Battle.net client. All classes bring new abilities and powers, according to Blizzard, which revealed the game today as part of its BlizzCon announcements.
