Blizzard announces 'Diablo Immortal' for Android and iOS

Blizzard announces 'Diablo Immortal' for Android and iOS

Blizzard Entertainment today unveiled Warcraft III: Reforged, a stunning reimagining of the revolutionary real-time strategy game that laid the foundation for Azeroth's most epic stories. Those Worldstone segments are the source of new and ancient evil creatures who want to use the stone's power to take over the land.

As far as controls go, Blizzard claims that "the transition from mouse-and-keyboard or controller to mobile touchscreen device was created to feel completely natural, intuitive and fun".

Unsurprisingly, fan response to Diablo Immortal has been...just a bit harsh. Sadly, these efforts were in vain as the newly announced Diablo Immortal for mobile has become one of the studio's most disliked videos. Other rumors had swirled prior to the event regarding both a potential Diablo or Diablo 2 remaster.

Trump expects 'very good' trade deal with China
Stocks have rebounded to their highest point in three weeks on Friday following the Trump administration's request for a possible trade deal with China.

While the early reactions to this announcement have been lukewarm, to say the very least, there is actually a lot to like in this game if you are a fan of the Diablo franchise. Diablo: Immortal was developed from the ground up as a stand-alone mobile experience. One thread on the Diablo subreddit has pointed out the undeniable similarities between Diablo: Immortal and a previously released NetEase mobile game called Endless of God, saying Immortal looks like a Diablo-themed clone or reskin rather than a brand-new game. Players will be able to team up with others in open area locales, but the game will also feature more than a few instanced dungeons. You can even join them to take on unsafe dungeons. It means that at some point in the near future it will be possible to play the massively-multiplayer online game in its original form and without all the expansions and gameplay tweaks from the past 14 years. Just as he's about be killed, he's saved by another of Diablo III's classes, the Wizard.

Since Diablo originated on battle.net Diablo: Immortal will have battle.net integration.
